Senior Master Sgt. Paul Speer, the superintendent of the 9th Aircraft Maintenance Unit for the 7th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, used a technique known as “waterfall scheduling” to make the maintenance plan at Dyess more consistent.

It effectively instructs technicians to work on aircraft depending on operational requirements and priority aircraft rather than prespecified timetables without getting too technical. Furthermore, it allows maintainers “the ability to concentrate their range in real-time, permitting them to select where their focus should be and on what objectives,” according to Capt. Kayshel Trudell, the 7th Bomb Wing’s chief of public affairs.
