The impact of afloat Supply Support Effectiveness on Aircraft Readiness has become a topic of increased visibility and attention to military planners and policy-makers, yet relatively few research analysis efforts have been directed toward discovering which elements of aircraft carrier supply performance are the most closely related to aircraft Mission Capability concepts and measures. In this report, the logistic support data base maintained by the Force Supply Staff of COMNAVAIRPAC is analyzed. Using well -known multi-variate regression analysis techniques, the relationships between the performance variables and aircraft readiness variables are examined to find a statistically significant combination of variables that are representative of both aviation supply support and aircraft readiness. Based on the results presented, the conclusion is made that the number of off-ship requisitions (backorders) is the variable which provides the direct link between aircraft readiness and supply performance.

A Model of the effect of sparing and repair turnaround time of the inertial navigation system on aircraft readiness for the F/A-18. Hase, Christopher A. (1988-06);Modern aircraft design allows for short turnaround times by removing the failed component and installing an operational one. The defective component is then either repaired in the squadron or turned in to supply which ...
