Abstract : This study demonstrates the feasibility of using linear programming to determine the allocation of avionics maintenance needed by the Indonesian Air Force between organizational maintenance facilities and outside contracting. Although the research focusses on avionics maintenance, the general principles are applicable to other military and civilian organizations. This study demonstrates how the application of linear programming techniques can help the Air Force with its strategic planning for maintenance of aircraft. However, it is not currently possible to implement such a system without development of a supporting data collection system. Therefore, it is recommended that development of such a system begin as soon as possible. A logical starting place is within the avionics maintenance organization.
