Analysis of U.S. Military helicopter operations in support of humanitarian assistance and disaster relief
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this project was to compare the relationship between Type Model Series platforms maintenance capability degradation and route selections, using different priorities and timelines. By identifying the top 10 maintenance failures and communicating these needs through the chain of command and supply chain it will minimize the mission capability degradation and maximize our aircraft availability. Establishing delivery routes that will maximize the number of sorties each aircraft can fly will help determine what percentage of overall demand we can meet. As the DOD budget continues to decrease, we need to find a more efficient way to maximize our resources and reduce our costs. The research team analyzed the impact of assigning aircraft by the lowest cost per flight hour in comparison to the other available T/M/S platforms. This analysis also clarifies the cost benefit analysis of the ARG versus CSG battle groups. By using the lessons learned from this project it will help ensure that each Humanitarian Assistance Disaster Relief mission is delivering the right supplies by the right T/M/S platforms for the right price.
