Maintenance and Reliability Simulation Modeling for Airfreighters 700617
A Maintenance and Reliability Simulation Model has been developed which can be used to evaluate and optimize the Maintainability and Reliability characteristics of an aircraft and the maintenance and logistic resources required to support the aircraft. The model is programmed to simulate any aircraft type or series. Its uniqueness to a specific design arises by virtue of the input data supplied to the “aircraft characteristics” segment of the model. The validity and accuracy of the model logic have been verified by simulating the maintenance operations of a fleet of aircraft being operated in scheduled service and comparing the model output with actual in-service reported data.
