An Optimization of the Maintenance Assets Distribution Network in the Argentine Air Force

Abstract

The Argentine Air Force Materiel General Directorate is responsible for the supply and distribution of reparable and consumable assets to support the operations of more than thirty different weapons systems. The Materiel General Directorate recently initiated an effort to assure logistic support and to gradually increase the productivity and efficiency of the related processes. The distribution of consumable and reparable assets was a key process identified as inefficient and targeted for improvement, and a recommendation was made to consider organic or private transportation and reduce transportation time in order to improve responsiveness and drive down logistic pipeline costs. This thesis uses network flow modeling methods to analyze the spare parts flows between Argentine Air Force units to determine overall transportation demand and capacity required for a defined level of service, and to evaluate the tradeoffs between costs and service levels. The goal is to assist in the development of an effective and efficient maintenance assets distribution network
