This thesis focuses on improved aviation readiness and reductions in pipeline investment and repair costs brought about by a power quality management program. Using cost-benefit analysis, it isolates the effects of an implemented program at an Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department in order to quantify and compare the costs of implementation and the benefits gained. Specific attention is given to reduction of repair cost of Automatic Test Equipment, and reduction of repair Turn Around Time of repair processes utilizing Automatic Test Equipment. Our analysis identified three-year savings of up to $1,135,134 through the application of a power quality management program at one repair location. The analysis demonstrates the savings achievable from the management of power quality in processes using sensitive electrical equipment.
