We describe two simulation models for repair processes of aircraft in the Navy, and suggest ways to reduce cycle time and improve readiness. The models illustrate the effects of material availability and process redesign on repair cycle time and work-in-process inventory levels for critical components. Our results indicate that the Navy could signiﬁcantly reduce repair cycle times of those components by increasing stock levels of relatively inexpensive repair parts and slightly modifying current repair processes.
