dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an analysis of the effect that component life limit reductions of the F404-GE-400 engine have on AIMD Lemoore Power Plants Division operations. Estimations of fleet impact due to F404 component life limit reductions did not include the affect on production work centers. This thesis used simulation modeling of the F404 engine repair process at AIMD Lemoore to investigate the impact of these reductions. The simulation model outcomes provide strong indications that AIMD Power Plants Division operations will not be substantially altered by F404 component life limit reductions. However, there will be a significant impact on engine turn around time and the number of aircraft grounded awaiting engines. Recommendations to reduce the impact of component life limit reductions include improved logistical support in long-lead repair items. Additionally, the researchers recommend greater use of simulation modeling in future planning and analysis of significant logistics support changes.en_US
