2 Lookr al. Opimal policis for aircraf fl managmn in h prsnc of unschduld mainnanc 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1. Miliary aircraf fl managmn Managing a fl of miliary aircraf is an inhrnly complx ask. Th lif of a miliary aircraf fl is ypically yars. Ovr h fl lif hr ar nrous rquirmns o b m boh by h whol fl and for h individual squadrons wihin h fl. Evry yar ach squadron will nd o m a nbr of flying rquirmns for insanc o rain aircrw and m opraional rquirmns. Furhrmor if hr ar mrgncis such as naural disasrs govrnmns may call on h miliary o assis a which im i is xpcd ha h miliary will b abl o rspond as rqusd. Consqunly hr is an implici rquirmn for squadrons o hav a sufficin nbr of aircraf availabl o b dployd a shor noic in such siuaions. Ths flying rquirmns nd o b achivd whil also ming h fl s mainnanc rquirmns. Th schduld mainnanc rgim consiss of svral yps basd on boh lapsd im and achivd flying hours. Rgular inspcions ar boh im-basd (.g. daily wkly c.) and flying hours-basd and usually ak 1-2 days o compl; only im-basd rgular inspcions ar considrd hr. Phasd mainnanc is flying hours-basd and may ak a fw hundrd mainnanc man hours (MMH) o compl quaing o a priod of days or wks. Finally dp or dpo mainnanc usually occurs vry fw yars or svral hundrd flying hours and may ak wks or monhs o compl; his is no considrd in h prsn modl. In addiion unschduld mainnanc ariss rgularly o disrup h plans mad by fl managrs. Unschduld mainnanc rquirmns may b discovrd bfor an aircraf is schduld o fly hus rndring h aircraf unsrvicabl or i may b discovrd during h cours of schduld mainnanc hus dlaying h rurn of h aircraf o a srvicabl sa. Diffrn mainnanc faciliis handl h diffrn mainnanc yps and som yps of srvics may b combind. Givn all of hs facors fl plannrs and managrs mak daily dcisions abou which aircraf o fly and how much and which o mainain and how much in ordr o m ongoing rquirmns Liraur rviw Th liraur in his ara is rlaivly nw compard wih civilian applicaions. Civilian and miliary aircraf fl managrs hav diffrn objcivs and consrains. Civilian aircraf fl managrs ar ypically concrnd wih maximizing profis wih aircraf flying poin-o-poin bwn various ciis. Th objcivs in miliary aircraf fl managmn ar mor concrnd wih maximizing aircraf availabiliy or h nbr of flying hours achivd wih dcisions rgarding which aircraf o fly ach day and how much. Mos of h liraur on miliary aircraf fl managmn concnras on purly drminisic applicaions using mahmaical programming chniqus o dvlop a flying and mainnanc plan ovr a givn im horizon. A Masrs hsis from h Naval Posgradua School (Pippin 1998) dvlopd a mixd ingrlinar program (MIP) in ordr o minimiz h dviaion from h goal lin for a US Army hlicopr fl. Th goal lin is a visual planning aid ha racks and sors individual aircraf and hir flying hours rmaining unil hir nx phasd srvic o nabl a sady flow of aircraf ino mainnanc. This has bn xndd (.g. Kozanidis al. 2012) by sking o gnra flying and mainnanc plans ovr mulipl im horizons (hr a monhly plan for six monhs) whil maximizing aircraf availabiliy (i.. h oal fl hours rmaining unil phasd mainnanc). Ths auhors (Gavranis and Kozanidis 2015) hn xploid h limid nbr of aircraf combinaions ha can bgin and nd phasd mainnanc o dvlop an xac soluion o his problm. A US Coas Guard sudy (Hahn and Nwman 2008) usd a MIP o gnra an opimal wkly plan for 12 wks for a hlicopr fl. Phasd mainnanc is includd and hlicoprs may b dployd o wo spara locaions. Th objciv is o minimiz hlicopr movmns (.g. bwn dployd and non-dployd) wih pnalis for no ming flying rquirmns. Ohr paprs apply MIPs o plans ha considr daily rquirmns: on papr (Cho 2011) dvlops a wic-daily plan wih wo fixdsori yps for 15 aircraf ovr a on-yar horizon whil minimizing h maxim nbr of aircraf in mainnanc; whil anohr papr (Marlow and Dll 2017) dvlops a daily plan for various im priods (20 and 30 days) and aircraf nbrs (12 and 24) incorporaing boh phasd mainnanc and rgular inspcions wih h aim o balanc mulipl rquirmns including daily and oal flying hours rquirmns as wll as a yp of goal lin mainnanc saggr a spcifid days. Ohr work in his fild has includd unschduld mainnanc. Th iniial focus (Maila al. 2008) has bn dvloping discr-vn simulaion modls incorporaing various yps of schduld mainnanc wih h focus on avrag availabiliy. Ths auhors nx apply a rinforcmn larning approach (Maila and Virann 2011) in ordr o ihr maximiz h availabiliy ovr an infini im horizon or xcd a 1393

Th simulaion modls survyd incorpora unschduld mainnanc bu do no focus on gnraing flying and mainnanc plans. Hnc h primary aim of his work is o prsn a modl ha sks o opimally manag a miliary aircraf fl whil xplicily including unschduld mainnanc. W hrfor rquir an approach ha combins simulaion (o modl random unschduld mainnanc) and mahmaical programming in ordr o drmin opimal policis for an aircraf fl similar o h sing of mainnanc policis dscribd prviously (Maila and Virann 2011). Such a modl can provid fl plannrs wih h abiliy o mak dcisions ha improv oucoms whil xplicily incorporaing uncrainy.

MODEL DESCRIPTION W considr a singl squadron conaining a fixd nbr of aircraf opraing in pacim. Aircraf may fly up o a maxim nbr of hours pr day whn hy ar srvicabl. Unsrvicabl aircraf (i.. hos in schduld or unschduld mainnanc) ar unabl o fly. W includ wo yps of schduld mainnanc: rgular inspcions (RI) (basd on lapsd im) and phasd mainnanc (PM) (basd on flying hours). Ths mainnanc vns may b combind whr possibl. Aircraf bcom unsrvicabl whn a RI is du whras aircraf may b inducd ino PM wih som flxibiliy around h spcifid flying hours sinc h prvious PM. Dpo mainnanc and srvics ha can b compld wihin a day and no affc h flying program ar no includd in h modl. Th diffrn yps of mainnanc ar prformd a spara mainnanc faciliis. PM occurs a h phasd lin mainnanc (PLM) faciliy whil rgular inspcions occur a h fligh lin mainnanc (FLM) faciliy. Whn PM occurs a h PLM faciliy RI (if du) may also b combind wih h phasd srvic. Schduld mainnanc mus b compld in blocks; i.. onc work on schduld mainnanc bgins i canno sop unil h mainnanc is compl. Aircraf quu for mainnanc if hr is no spar capaciy a a mainnanc faciliy. Unschduld mainnanc (UM) has wo componns: im bwn failurs and im o rpair (duraion). Boh ar modlld as lognormal probabiliy disribuions basd on prvious analysis of aircraf daa (Marlow and Novak 2013). UM may b undrakn a h FLM faciliy (ihr whn an aircraf fails or is combind wih a rgular inspcion) or a h PLM faciliy (ihr whn an aircraf ha is ligibl for PM fails or whn UM is discovrd on ha aircraf during a phasd srvic). Nw UM MMH rquirmns for ach aircraf ar rvald a h sar of ach day according o h inpu probabiliy disribuions. Aircraf ar prmid o accula a spcifid amoun of carrid forward unsrvicabiliy (CFU) in MMH whil rmaining srvicabl. Howvr onc h CFU MMH hrshold is xcdd hs acculad MMH bcom h UM rquirmn and h aircraf mus undrgo mainnanc in ordr o rurn o a srvicabl sa.
