TRANSPORT FLEET PLANNING FOR MULTI-PERIOD OPERATIONS

A model is developed for planning the acquisition and disposal of equipment in a transport fleet. It deals specifically with the composition over time of a commercial airline fleet. But it can be applied generally to any problem of fleet planning when technological change together with budgetary constraints on interrelated projects and items that deteriorate with use are dealt with. A number of previous models are examined each of which deals separately with a different element of the problem. A realistic and workable model is developed by analysis of the theoretical background of some of these elements. The size and composition over time of a fleet are considered as a set of interrelated capital investment projects subject to demand, availability, and budgetary and technological constraints. A simple numerical illustration is formulated and solved, and the solution is discussed.
