Abstract
Impact Technologies, LLC will lead an effort that will be supported by Standard Aero, San Antonio, Texas to formulate a methodology that will extend the current maintenance cost modeling tool to account for differing time since overhauls (TSO) and differing reliabilities of engine modules. Starting with a developed and proven model supplied by Standard Aero called "TF39 Maintenance Cost per flying Hour Model" (MCPFH), the proposed effort will provide improved cost estimation techniques that will more accurately predict the Operation & Support (O&S) costs due to maintenance actions on the turbine engines. New innovations will be introduced into the cost model that enable its integration with current RCM tools available to the Air Force, efficiently utilizing populated datasets. Additionally, analysis techniques will be embedded within the cost model so that financial costs would be appropriately allocated in an environment where engine module exhibit failures with stochastic tendencies.
