Abstract : This thesis investigates methods for constructing fielded jet engine performance goals using Non-Parametric and Parametric analysis methods. The procedures developed can be applied with any fielded jet engine. Emphasis is placed on demonstrating the use of the Naval Aviation Logistics Analysis (NALDA) database in conjunction with existing spreadsheet software programs to develop performance goals for flight hours between repairs, infant mortality rate and proper mix of scheduled/unscheduled removals. Conditional Probabilities were calculated that will assist maintenance planners in scheduling engine removals for planned maintenance.
