A study which describes a flyaway kit design procedure developed at RAND and shows its experimental application to the design of an F-86H flyaway kit. This procedure attempts to systematize the treatment of numerous factors (e.g., the combat unit to be supported, the period of support, available maintenance facilities and personnel, flyaway kit size limitations, and various spare parts characteristics) and to help develop more effective and economical flyaway kits. It is concluded that the RAND flyaway kit design methodology may provide significant improvements over current Air Force procedures.
