The simulated aircraft and its failure model in LP-I
One of a series of RAND Memoranda describing Laboratory Problem I (LP-I), an experiment designed to evaluate a set of proposed logistics policies and procedures by comparing them with another set of policies based on Air Force logistics practices more or less current in mid-1956. In its first major experiment, LP-I simulated the supply and maintenance activities of a logistics system supporting an Air Defense Command aircraft. The present study describes aircraft and failure models developed to determine the frequency and pattern of parts failures occurring as a result of flying and maintenance activity. 64 pp.
