Maintenance management at the 135th Airlift Wing, Maryland Air National Guard desires a visualization tool for their maintenance performance metrics. Currently they monitor their metrics via an electronic spreadsheet. They desire a tool that presents the performance information in a graphical manner. This thesis effort focuses on the development of a visualization tool utilizing two of the seven tools offered by Statistical Process Control (SPC). This research demonstrates the application of p-charts and Pareto diagrams in the aircraft maintenance arena. P-charts are used for displaying mission capable (MC) rates and flying scheduling effectiveness (FSE) rates. Pareto diagrams are then used to highlight which aircraft subsystems are affecting those two performance indicators.
