Model-Based Optimization for Pilot Training
MetadataShow full item record
Pilot training in the Air Force is modeled as a supply chain where each step in the process is seen as the “supplier” of the next step. We use a model-based approach for optimizing the cost of pilot training while improving the war-fighting capability of the Air Force. A linear programming model that synchronizes and balances the flow of pilots through the various stages of the supply chain is developed. The model includes constraints such as capacity and manpower flows reflecting hiring and training of pilots.
