A SIMULATION STUDY OF THE LM-2500 GAS TURBINE ENGINE INVENTORY SYSTEM

LM-2500 gas turbine engine rotable pool requirements were studied using computer simulation. System operating characteristics were observed with various scenarios and management philosophies. Several purchase plans were formulated and tested once system trends were established. From this information, cost-effectiveness relationships were derived. Best estimates of system variables indicated that cost-effectiveness was optimized for a rework capacity of seven to eight engines and the purchase of fourteen to sixteen engines early in system life as rotable pool spares.
