Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL INVOLVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER PROGRAM WHICH WILL ENABLE PROGRAM OFFICES TO PERFORM SCHEDULE ASSESSMENTS. THE MODEL WILL BE DEVELOPED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF SCHEDULING OF AIRCRAFT ENGINE PRODUCTION PROGRAMS. THE COMPUTER PROGRAM WILL BE IMPLEMENTED IN A USER FRIENDLY MODE AND WILL PROVIDE CAPABILITY FOR OPTIMIZING PRODUCTION SCHEDULES TO MINOMIZE RISKS AND COST FACTORS, AND PROVIDE "WHAT IF" CAPABILITY BASED UPON VARIABLE INPUT ASSUMPTIONS AND ANALYST EXPERIENCE LEVELS. THIS INITIAL DEVELOPMENT EFFORT WILL PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY TO MATCH ENGINE BUILD RATES TO AIRFRAME SCHEDULES. THE COMPLETED MODEL WILL PROVIDE MORE TIMELY, ACCURATE SCHEDULING INFORMATION THAT WILL GREATLY INCREASE THE PROBABILITY THAT ENGINE PRODUCTION AND TESTING ACTIVITIES CAN MEET PREDETERMINED TARGET DATES WITHOUT EXPENDITURE OF PREMIUM RESOURCES. THE COMPUTER MODEL, AS DEVELOPED, WILL PROVIDE THE KERNAL FOR A MORE GENERALIZED RESOURCE ANALYSIS MODEL THAT WILL HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO CONSIDER THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SCHEDULE AND PRODUCTION RESOURCES (PERSONNEL, EQUIPMENT, INVENTORY, ETC.) AND TO PROVIDE ANALYTICAL TREATMENT OF PRODUCTION DISRUPTIONS SUCH AS ENGINEERING CHANGE, SCHEDULE CHANGES, CHANGES IN BUSINESS STRUCTURE (MAKE OR BUY FOR EXAMPLE) AND FACILITY CHANGES.
