    Proper scheduling maintenance for Air Force C-130 aircraft involves the prevention of mismatches concerning the availability of the aircraft and a new wing kit which would prolong its use. Scheduling maintenance problems include the designation of wing kits in the production sequence to match for a specific aircraft. Such problems can be avoided by using a job scheduling algorithm and a spreadsheet which non-mathematical managers consider user-friendly as compared to linear programming.
