This thesis is an analysis of consolidation of duplicate capabilities for intermediate level maintenance of T700-GE-401 turboshaft engines belonging to Naval Air Force, Atlantic Fleet. The down-sizing of the military in the next decade and the resulting budget constrained reality will force the Navy to adopt innovative measures to save costs. One of the methods by which costs can be reduced is by combining the maintenance functions of activities with duplicated capabilities into one facility, as is proposed for the maintenance facilities for this engine. To test the feasibility of the consolidation concept, the thesis uses simulation to model an Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD) operating as a consolidated T700 maintenance facility under a worst-case scenario. Based on the simulation results, the thesis concludes that the proposed consolidation is a viable concept. The thesis also uses life cycle cost analysis to quantify some of the cost savings resulting from the consolidation. Specific recommendations are then made regarding implementation of the consolidation concept.
