The computer routines, operating manual, and programmer's manual for the Bench Repair (BR) Simulator, the second of four simulation programs constituting the Planned Logistics Analysis and Evaluation Technique (PLANET). BR is designed to simulate the operations of the various repair shops on an Air Force base. Either one or many shops can be examined with a single simulation. The simulator takes as inputs the shops' operating characteristics and simulates shop operation through time. Performance is measured in terms of repair cycle time and the shops' capacity. Outputs can be used as an aid in determining the resource requirements necessary to support repair actions. The Bench Repair Simulator can be assembled with the Availability and Base Cadre (ABC) Simulator (PLANET: Part I) to examine problems encompassing all base functions: As BR simulates field-level support, ABC simulates the organizational level. Together, the two models incorporate nearly every facet of maintenance and logistics at Air Force bases. (See also RM-4659, RM-4661 through RM-4663, RM-4950.)
