An Evidential Reasoning Approach to Contractor Evaluation in the Military Aircraft Sector 1. Introduction Tendering is an approach largely associated with the award of project contracts, in the aerospace sector [1].

A project is a highly complex transaction, involving products and services integrated through a work. This paper reports the application of an evidential reasoning (ER) approach, to deal with the evaluation of a contractor, from among different fabrication options of aero-engine equipment.

the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) and its guidance, based on a series of audits we conducted on DoD officials’ evaluation of contractor performance. Background The purpose of a PAR is to provide source selection officials with information on contractor past performance.

Government officials prepare PARs in Size: 2MB. Graham, J. Yang and M. Sonmez, “ An evidential reasoning approach to contractor evaluation in the military aircraft sector ”, Working Papers in Business & Management, the University of Salford, Vol.2,ISSN X.

The COR must inspect the contractor by watching actual task performance, physically checking an attribute of a completed task or using management information reports. The COR is to be fair, objective and consistent in evaluating the contractor’s performance against the contract standards.

Ensure the COR is documenting the surveillance. to require State aircraft to have ‘due regard’ for the safety of navigation of civil aircraft (Article 3 of the Convention). In addition, Article 3 bis of the CC requires States to ensure that military aircraft do not endanger civil aircraft, but these are only for two specific situations – use of weapons and interception.

model produces curves of cost versus aircraft availability rates for a given aircraft type (O’Malley, ). This is an incredible model developed in the early s providing Air Force leaders the capability to forecast aircraft availability rates based on total expenditures for a specific weapons system.

Since the creation of the AAM, there. Aircraft Evaluation Division (AED) coordinate and assist with aircraft certification and continued airworthiness programs. 24/7 Emergency Alternative Method of Compliance (AMOC) Request applies to Part 25 transport category aircraft and Part 33 Engines.

Possessing a general understanding of the enlisted evaluation board process is vital for Airmen promoting to the SNCO tier.

Board-eligible Airmen can view their Data Verification Brief, located in the Virtual Military Personnel Flight, days prior to the board convening date.

These dates are published and made available to Airmen via myPers. Our analysis of approaches used by eight public-sector organizations that bear a resemblance to the FAA in certain key respects, as well as of the FAA’s staffing methodology for air traffic controllers, reveals that there is little potential for direct transfer—or adaptation—of any of these models to the FAA’s ASI staffing situation.

Graham has written: 'An evidential reasoning approach to contractor evaluation in the military aircaft sector'. A unique and significant part of the nation's air mobility resources is the Civil Reserve Air Fleet, or CRAF.

Selected aircraft from U.S. airlines, contractually committed to CRAF, augment Department of Defense airlift requirements in emergencies when the need for airlift exceeds the capability of military aircraft.

An aircraft, even when sold by one airline, sees extended life in another airline's operations. In the commercial sector, new aircraft tend to be evolutionary in their designs. Consequently, they are maintained in service until they are not economically viable to operate.

The cost of new aircraft, particularly for the military, is enormous. This paper is an update of a paper that five of us published in The areas of multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) and multiattribute utility theory (MAUT) continue to be active areas of management science research and application.

c. Where a business case supports a contractor operated UAS and the Government has accepted some or all of the risks involved in the aircraft’s operation via the process described in paragraph 7.b, follow the requirements of Army RegulationContractor.

The Final Evaluation Problem is the third command assessment conducted by the ISIC that determines a unit's readiness to proceed to the intermediate and advanced phases of the IDTC. In this chapter, the roles and responsibilities of the FAA, the air carriers, airports, and independent security contractors are discussed (see Figure ).

The U.S. civil aviation security program today is a combination of laws, regulations, and resources for protecting the industry and the traveling public against terrorism and other criminal.

Download the Report Part of U.S. Military Forces in FY The Struggle to Align Forces with Strategy The Air Force continues procurement and development of fifth generation aircraft to meet the demands of great power conflict while a high operational temp has forced it to invest in readiness and aging legacy platforms.

Thus, the Air Force is in effect driven to a high-low. Major advantage of normative approaches is that they lead to systems for which performance criteria can be analyzed. The performance of a normative system can be guaranteed with respect to a defensible criteria (related to the axiomatic bases used for decision).

This technique includes utility theoretic reasoning and evidential reasoning. The topics covered in the book are organized in the way one would design an ATR.

The first step is to understand the military problem and make a list of potential solutions to the problem. A key issue is the availability of sufficiently comprehensive sets of data to train and test the potential solutions. Performance evaluation is a continuing process and should be done on a regular basis.

However, once a year, on or around 15 May, supervisors are required to conduct an annual performance evaluation on each LN-employee who has completed at least 90 days in the current position.

The major duties are outlined in the position description. Category and approach. In the top row enter aircraft category as applicable for the approach flown.

In the center, and separated into columns as applicable will be the decision height (DH) or minimum descend altitude (MDA) (as applicable) (figure ).

Volume 4, American Research Press (ARP),pp. SAN ANTONIO (AFPN) -- In his latest "Enlisted Perspective," the Air Force's top enlisted Airman discusses the Airman evaluation system and how it should be accurate and grounded in integrity.

"To truly develop our Airmen, we must accurately and honestly assess their strengths and weaknesses and chart their course to success," said Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Rodney J. McKinley. locate runways. The FAA has established published instrument approach procedures that provide horizontal guidance to on-board avionics that aid the pilot in locating the runway.

Capitol Airspace assessed a total of 20 published instrument approach procedures at two airports in proximity to the proposed wind turbines. Military pilots have a military pilot's license (which can be converted to an FAA license with a little paperwork), and the airworthiness and maintenance standards for active military aircraft are defined and managed by the branch of the service responsible for the aircraft.

The inner zone of the final approach zone must be sufficiently clear to make the impact panels clearly visible (because of the steep aircraft approach, the approach-zone slope must not exceed a As a technology transfer mechanism, the CRADA is an extremely useful tool in moving federally funded R&D into the private sector.

For enlisted evaluations, military raters must be an officer or NCO of the US or a foreign military service, in a grade equal to or higher than the ratee and at lease grade _____ or higher. E Exception: SrA, may server as a rater only if they have completed ALS.

The American public and its political leadership will do anything for the military except take it seriously. The result is a chickenhawk nation in which careless spending and strategic folly. Employees may believe that the performance evaluation method is unfair or that the goals are unrealistic and unattainable.

They may lack confidence in the way accounting figures are generated or may prefer a less formal communication and evaluation system.

Often these fears are completely unfounded, but if employees believe these problems exist. In military parlance, the operational environment is the combination of the conditions, circumstances, and influences which will determine the use of military forces and help a. - Farm Labor Contractors.

Fuzzy set theory (FST) is a well-recognised decision support tool that allows the uncertainty of the events in risk assessment based on the experts’ linguistic evaluation approach to be handled.
