Logisticians at NARF's (Naval Air Rework Facilities) presently rely on the qualitative judgment of skilled P & E's (Planners and Estimators) to determine when depot level maintenance is required on P-3 aircraft. This thesis focuses on quantifying the management problem of deciding which P-3's to recommend for rework delays under the Navy's ASPA (Aircraft Service Period Adjustment) program. Inspection consistency, precise managerial auditing, and computer-based trend analysis are prospective attributes of a properly tested and instituted quantitative ASPA evaluation. The engineering basis and the economic realities of the P & E's decision are addressed. By exploring current management science methodologies, a practical model patterned after ASPA evaluation methods being tested at NARF Norfolk and at Army Helicopter Depot Corpus Christi is recommended to assist NARF management with this decision
