The objective of this thesis is to examine the process and managerial policies used for the F-14 Standard Depot Level Maintenance (SDLM) and compare it to the processes and managerial policies for overhaul of the F/A-18 and for the United Airlines 737. Efficiencies discovered in the F/A-18 and 737 overhaul processes that can be applied to reduce F-14 SDLM Turn Around Time (TAT) are identified. The F-14 community faces the possibility of having insufficient numbers of aircraft to satisfy fleet requirements due to excessive SDLM TAT. A 50% reduction in TAT would yield an increase of 10 to 11 aircraft available for use per year. A TAT reduction of 1Q% is required by the fourth quarter of Fiscal Year 1998 in order to alleviate the premature retirement of approximately 10% of the inventory (21 F-14 aircraft). This research identifies areas for potential F14 SDLM TAT improvement pertaining to planning, pre-induction requirements, and the component management policies at NADEP Jacksonville, Florida
