dc.description.abstractMaintaining the Fleet Readiness Plan (FRP) construct of six aircraft carriers available within 30 days, plus two additional carriers available within 90 days is a difficult task. Maintenance requirements on carriers alone make satisfying the FRP a challenging scheduling problem. We develop a carrier maintenance scheduling model with a goal to meet, as best as possible, the FRP requirements over a ten-year period, while obeying simple maintenance facility constraints. This model allows us to anticipate gaps in coverage and also quantitatively assess the benefit, or burden, of re-sizing the fleet. We conclude that by increasing the average cycle time for a Carrier Strike Group (CSG) to 27 months we can meet the FRP requirements continuously after an initial maintenance adjustment period of 62 months.en_US
