German Army light helicopter transportation regiments operate 45 Bell UH-1D helicopters to support demanding missions throughout Europe. Maintenance period scheduling, major exercise and regular mission assignment decisions directly influence the readiness of the helicopter fleet. Currently, all planning is done manually, which is unstructured and time consuming. This thesis describes a decision support system designed to assist with maintenance planning and mission assignment. The yearly maintenance and event scheduling problem and the short term mission assignment tasks are formulated and solved as elastic mixed integer linear programs. Resulting yearly schedules and short term sortie plans are both generated in a fraction of the time previously required with solution quality superior to their manual counterparts
