The objective of this research is to investigate the impact that power quality management can have on the intermediate level of maintenance. Power quality management is a preventative process that focuses on identifying and correcting problems that cause bad power. Using cost-benefit analysis we compare the effects of implementing a power quality management program at AIMD Lemoore and AIMD Fallon. The implementation of power quality management can result in wide scale logistical support changes in regards to the life cycle costs of maintaining the DoD's current inventory of sensitive electronic equipment. Power quality management provides logisticians the opportunity to reduce maintenance costs, reduce maintenance cycle times, and improve fleet operational availability. Our research identifies potential savings of $1.5 million from reduced test bench maintenance costs and productivity increases, and recommends the DoD institutionalize the use of power quality management.
