Spare parts inventory management for the next generation Finnish Defense Force fighter fleet
Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School

This research will suggest factors that Finland should consider to better manage spare parts inventories in its upcoming fighter aircraft fleet acquisition. The topic is timely because the Finnish Defense Forces (FDF) is in the process of procuring the fighters to replace the present F/A-18 C/D-fleet. The primary research question is this: What are the key factors in the near future fighter spare-parts inventory management that will affect the FDF fighter fleet's performance? This study analyzes inventory management fundamentals using a case example to determine what key elements in inventory management the Finnish Defense Forces should consider when creating a future fighter fleet spare-parts management system. The outcome consists of a series of key issues for the Finnish Defense Force to consider when preparing a request for quotations for the future fighter fleet.
