Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to develop inventory flow tools based on Just In Time (JIT) principles and integrate them into the Manufacturing Repair Overhaul (MRO) environment. The Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center (OC-ALC) current processes vary greatly based on the specific needs of an aircraft and the condition of the aircraft's parts. Properly planning for both the routine and ad hoc requirements is essential to inventory management concepts and their application within the MRO environment. Depot MRO has its own unique set of challenges that make it different then traditional manufacturing. The age of their aircraft and the different operating environments of each aircraft further compound issues not addressed in traditional manufacturing. To address the unique needs of the MRO environment, we propose to develop inventory optimization and flow tools that address both the inventory aspect of the MRO environment and the JIT delivery concepts. These tools will utilize optimization theory and be designed to enable the OC-ALC to react to the short lead-time environment common with its unpredictable repairs.
