Abstract: The purpose of this research is to forecast the repair demand of the F414-GE-400 aircraft engine and determine if the Fleet Readiness Center (FRC) West, located at Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore, will be able to meet increased demand in the near future. Our methodology was to collect current history of intermediate-level repair of the F414-GE-400 and estimate its increase based on the arrival of additional engines procured by the Navy. The objective of this research is to build an optimization model to determine if present manning levels are adequate to perform the forecasted demand for engine repair. The result of our analysis provides decision-makers with information regarding the best alternatives to meet increased demand.
