Airline Management of Overhaul Processes with Critical Path Methods 630409

The family of planning and scheduling techniques known generally as critical path analysis has received wide publicity in the past few years as a tool for planning major industrial projects such as the building of ships, or factories, or the development of missiles and spacecraft. The application of this technique to the scheduling problem of overhauling turbine aircraft and engines has produced the following results: improved descriptions of the detailed work involved with an overhaul; effective centtalized control over the various phases of the overhaul; logical sequencing of the many and varied jobs to be done in the highly complex and specialized aircraft systems; improved parts availability; reduced out-of-service time of the aircraft being overhauled.
