Abstract
Increasing budgetary constraints have prompted actions to reduce the maintenance cost of current naval aircraft. This thesis examines the Aircraft Engine Component Improvement Program (CIP), its impact on these cost at the organizational and intermediate levels of maintenance, and savings from these improvements. The objectives of the research were to identify current life cycle cost (LCC) models used by the Navy andor the other services to determine CIP benefits, to validate on-going LCC-oriented computer program. This thesis is organized into areas covering CIP objectives and considerations, system effectiveness, reliability, LCC and related data and models, aircraft data used for LCC, CIPLCC computer models, return on investment (ROI) analysis program of the F-14A TF30-P-414A engine improvement, conclusions and recommendations. Based on the ROI analysis and ECIFR reports, the engine improvement program has been cost effective.
