We describe a multi-period optimization model, implemented in GAMS, to help the U.S. Air Force improve logistical efficiency. It determines the maximum on-time throughput of cargo and passengers that can be transported within a given aircraft fleet over a given network, subject to appropriate physical and policy constraints. The model can be used to help answer questions about selecting airlift assets and about investing or divesting in airfield infrastructure.
