The Department of Defense is fielding the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft in the Marine Corps and Air Force. Marine Medium Tilt-rotor Training Squadron 204 (VMMT-204) in Jacksonville, North Carolina, is the sole Fleet Replacement Squadron (FRS) for initial V-22 training, and planners must develop pilot training schedules that support service goals without exceeding VMMT-204 resources. Currently, planners manually create FRS training schedules with monthly fidelity, guided by past analysis and personal experience. However, manual methods are cumbersome and provide few measures of resource utilization. Marine planners need a decision support tool to automate V-22 FRS scheduling, given transition guidance. This thesis introduces an optimization model that takes as input Marine Corps operational requirements, Air Force and Marine annual training goals, ERS training syllabus requirements and resources available, and a prioritization scheme to resolve conflicts between competing goals. The output is a schedule of training classes identified by unit, FRS syllabus and follow-on training, and class convening date (with half-month fidelity) over a ten-year planning horizon. The model uses Microsoft Excel to input data and automate output reports for training goals, resource utilization, and training possibilities with unscheduled resources. A ten-year training plan can be completed in about 10 minutes
