Abstract
A level of repair recommendation for any repairable assembly is based on the economic assessment of whether the failed item should be repaired or discarded. If it is economical to repair the item, then one has to decide at what level (or levels) the repair should take place. To answer this question, one must consider the costs of inventory, hardware, labour, training, facility set-up, as well as repair cycle time, MTBF, etc. The report presents ALORA IV, a computerized model developed to assess the cost of various repair policies, by taking into account the above factors. It is a direct descendant of ALORA III, incorporating several desirable features absent from the former version.
