Abstract
This thesis is a study of the Naval Aviation Depot streainlining and consolidation as a result of Defense Management Review Decision (DMRD) 908. The Navy has conducted extensive economic analysis of DMRD 908 but no study of the production operations has been accomplished. This thesis examines the consolidation of the F/A-18 aircraft F404 engine and module repair at Naval Aviation Depot Jacksonville NADEP JAX), Florida. The major thrust of the thesis is the application of queueing theory and simulation techniques to investigate the effect of production consolidation on the engine and module repair operation at NADEP JAX. The study examines how engine and module turn-around-time (TAT) and work-in-process (WIP) would change when production resources remain constant and the number of engines repaired at the facility increases. The thesis concludes that if all F404 engine and module depot level repair is consolidated at NADEP JAX without an increase in production resources, TAT and WIP will increase and available capacity for surge requirements will be limited.
