USER DELAY COST MODEL AND FACILITIES MAINTENANCE COST MODEL FOR A TERMINAL CONTROL AREA. VOLUME III. USER'S MANUAL AND PROGRAM DOCUMENTATION FOR THE FACILITIES MAINTENANCE COST MODEL

The Facilities Maintenance Cost Model (FMCM) is an analytic model designed to calculate expected annual labor costs of maintenance within a given FAA maintenance sector. The model is programmed in FORTRAN IV and has been demonstrated on the CDC Kronos time-sharing system. Model inputs are facility identification data, maintenance support scenarios, and facility reliability and maintainability data. The principal model outputs include the expected annual direct labor and salary costs of maintaining a specific facility type within a sector, the required number of personnel by skill level for that facility type, the costs of preventive maintenance and corrective maintenance, and the costs of call-backs. The model also provides total cost and labor data on all of the facilities within the sector. This is the third of three volumes. Volume I documents the model formulation and demonstration. Volume II is a user's manual and contains the program documentation for the user delay cost model. (Author)
