Abstract

Air power plays a critical role in modern war. In order to maintain the highest possible level of aircraft readiness, logistics management for aircraft operation must be conducted well. In this study, we use a Structural Equation Model (SEM) to develop an Air Force Logistics Management Index (ALMI) for effective aircraft operation. An individual ALMI rating is estimated for various combinations of characteristics. It is expected that the proposed approach for ascertaining an ALMI will be used as guidance for the development of aircraft logistics management systems of the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF).
