Abstract:

The purpose of the proposed effort is to assist depot managers in the discovery and application of maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) enterprise policies supporting improved agility, throughput, and system responsiveness amidst ever-changing demands, priorities, and resource constraints. To support this role, we propose to research and develop Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) Physics and Principles of Operation (MP2O) resource management policy simulation methods and tools. The Phase I project will (i) establish MP2O requirements, (ii) research MP2O methods and tools, and (iii) formulate a Phase II technology transition approach. The key products of the Phase I effort includes research to leverage, enhance, and configure MP2O technologies resulting in the following functionalities (i) Parts allocation policy analyzer; (ii) Dispatching policy impacts analyzer; and (iii) Back shop workload staging impacts analyzer. Key innovations include (a) Strategy to complement existing and emerging management training, knowledge development, and operations management methods and systems; (b) fusion of multiple disciplines to provide effective policy analysis support; (c) Leveraged application of well-established manufacturing and sustainment physics research to deliver practical insights and MRO operations knowledge.
