IDA was asked to build an end-to-end model of the U. S. Navy’s F/A-18 Super Hornet sustainment system using the OPUS/SIMLOX suite of tools to investigate the strategic levers that drive readiness. This briefing summarizes two R packages IDA built—one to create component-level metrics and the other to use the metrics to generate input tables needed to run OPUS/SIMLOX.
