Air Force Research Analysts Create F-22 Aircraft Maintenance Scheduling Tool

F-22Operations research analysts at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base have developed a scheduling tool that works to help forecast manpower and facilities required to maintain the F-22 Raptor fighter jet.

The U.S. Air Force said Thursday research analysts collaborated with the F-22 Strategic Planning Group to create the Master Plan Scheduling Tool through the use of aircraft maintenance data and a mathematical theory.

Research analyst Greg Gehret said the tool works to align available infrastructure with maintenance skillsets, workload and facility to help meet aircraft maintenance schedules.

Gehret added the scheduling theory behind the tool can be applied to any production line such as F-35 and A-10 aircraft.

Matt Starkey, a scheduler at the F-22 Strategic Planning Group, said the tool helps the 574th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron to analytically forecast depot resource requirements such as facilities, manpower, tooling and materials.
