About this product
- DescriptionThe 1985 National Defense Authorization Act required the U.S. Government to maintain the public capability to sustain military systems that play a role in war plans and contingency scenarios - referred to as core. This research analyzes application of this law to the modification of fielded USAF manned combat aircraft Operational Flight Programs (OFPs). First, a review of the content and history of the law and implementing policies was performed. The intent of Title 10's core requirement was analyzed with respect to the risk of relying on private sector depot maintenance in today's environment. Next, models were developed as a tool for determining whether OFP work is more appropriately designated as maintenance or development. The models were applied to current combat aircraft OFPs, and results suggest that most OFP modification is development and t maintenance. Foundational to the models, a common lexicon is proposed with definitions of software maintenance and other key terms. Lastly, a new model for source of repair decisions is proposed which includes a risk analysis for all depot work, regardless of core designation. Beneficial to program offices, depot organizations, and HQ AFMC, this framework allows greater flexibility and cost savings by emphasizing competition based on cost effectiveness.
