Since the early s, the U.S. Air Force Logistics Community has improving logistics operations, eLog21 represented the Air Force’s. The AF logistics transformation initiative, Expeditionary Logistics for the 21st Century (eLog21), represents the Air Force’s commitment to transform current.

Expeditionary Combat Support System (ECSS)

The statutory definition of depot maintenance is, at best, ambiguous and subject to interpretation. To use this website, you must agree to our Privacy Policyincluding cookie policy. Purchasing Must Become Supply Management.

The Air Force is slowly fielding an ERP, but a system is needed as soon as practical, and the Air Force must provide it to the entire sustainment community.

ECSS is planning for full integration with these systems. No One Comes Close U. The National Academies Press.

Interestingly, although the acquisition arm is under the Naval Air Systems command and is a force supporter, the maintenance depots and. During the visits to the ALCs, the committee divided into smaller subgroups composed of subject matter experts that aligned with the activities at the specific ALCs.

Determine if any modifications in technology efforts are required and, if so, identify them and make recommendations regarding the technology efforts that should be pursued because they could make positive impacts on the sustainment of the current and future systems and equipment of the Air Force.

The charts show performance by each platform as well as by mean performance for the year. This action occurred for a variety of reasons, including the desire to standardize processes for reparable.

The logical remaining element is metrics for measuring and reporting on how forcs system and the processes are working. Personal communication to the committee, April 11, Firce other words, although the Air Force would still manage reparable items, determine the quantities to be purchased, and initiate contracts for repair of these parts, the DLA would source and procure the new parts.


In theory, such a concept makes sense, but only when accompanied by rigorous, engineering-based analyses of the criticality of potential failures. To not do so ignores the fact that Title 10 has put the components on notice to achieve, and not necessarly corce, significant perturbations forcw the workforce.

An analysis of the Air Force industrial workload personnel policies indicates that greater freedom to adjust staffing levels without higher Headquarters interference is needed. For example, advanced automobiles use upwards of 30 million lines of code, and there exist projections of a million lines-of-code car.

Although process maturity is extremely important, technical expertise in real-time systems, concurrency, new programming languages and operating systems, system of systems, networks, communications, and large-scale integration will be equally important to maintain future aircraft logisyics. The entire acquisition and sustainment environment is tightly woven and cannot be separated into individual elements without considering the effects on the whole.

For systems of this age and in these general conditions, a deck of work could be optimized for both cost and turn time.

At the highest levels, there is a lack of measures and objectives for productivity and effectiveness. Ironically, there is a need for some flexibility in the military environment. Establishing long-term spare parts relationships with suppliers who are capable of providing parts and particularly those that fit in the upper right quadrant of Figure would provide highly effective minimum lead time, on-time delivery and optimally efficient results appropriate costs.

Auth with social network: Personal communication to the committee, December 9, In one form or another, the committee repeatedly heard similar stories about the condition of management systems to support parts requirements generation or production support. The AFMC develops, tests, fields, and sustains weapon systems.

The NAE established the behavior model, organization, and processes to 35 Provide clear definition, organization, logisticss planning process to achieve the Single Fleet Driven Metrics for readiness and sustainment. To establish the degree of complexity, it is important to note that responsibility for program management and sustainment for some of these platforms are shared with the Aeronautical Systems Center ASC and the Electronic Systems Center ESC.

Deschamps, Air Force Materiel Command. Although visual aids are commendable, there was no consistent measure of effectiveness or efficiency across the ALCs or even within an ALC. When the Air Force firce in major outsourcing activities during the s, it did not always stipulate a standardized maintenance management concept to be used by the prospective competitors. Mismatches remain between support to production activities and the growth of akr at the production level.


Time constraints also did not permit such a visit. How are the goals tracked and to whom are they reported? The LTO is the primary organization responsible for aligning logistics requirements with the expectations of the logistics community and the capabilities of the logistics systems.

To the extent possible, the committee analyzed workforce levels to support the ALC sustainment missions. The ALC leadership teams were strongly committed to partnering with the olgistics but met with varying degrees of success. In the end, the committee concluded that the metrics are well employed at the lower echelons of the organization, but they do not contribute to an overall assessment of the Air Force sustainment enterprise. Figure highlights partnerships strategies to be considered.

The Air Force should establish frce goals that are specific and can be aiir by all acquisition, contracting, engineering, and sustainment professionals. The company matched every dollar donated. The method of measuring alr portraying quality results is much like that in the ALCs. Of course, the Air Force has finite resources, but concerns about sustainment costs must be weighed against what is being delivered in terms of capability. Attendant with an integrated approach, software maintenance became a part of the ALCs and specifically the maintenance organization in the ALCs.

The Air Force planning and budgeting processes have the capability to successfully address the forecasting and distribution of funds at a high level. Page 44 Share Cite.
