Management control of Aviation Fleet Maintenance funds in a stock fund environment
Gough, Richard John
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the existing Aviation Fleet Maintenance (AFM) funds control system utilized by the Aviation Type Commanders and to assess impact of the stock funding of aviation depot level repairables (AV-DLRs) on this system. This is accomplished in three phases: (1) a literature search of management control theory, from which a set of management control principles are distilled; (2 ) employment of a case study approach designed to contrast field study findings to these principles; and (3) submission of findings, conclusions, and recommendations. This study concludes that the existing AFL funds control system lacks the fundamental control principles which are necessary to facilitate efficient funds expenditure in a stock fund environment. It is suggested that the absence of a management control system will result in suboptimal AFM funds expenditure and a reduction in aircraft readiness. The adoption of a comprehensive management control system is proposed.
