Otherwise, it is not a key performance metric for any manager of the sustainment community.

As dynamic as the legislation is on depot maintenance and acquisition efforts, the committee found little to no statutory language about managing materiel or the spare parts piece of the supply chain.

The overall data situation is made worse by efforts to manage software that is entirely dependent on total data packages being available. Although the facilities were generally impressive, the committee noted situations where the equipment and computers used for software maintenance were worn out or suffering from the inability to get repair parts, or the technology had far surpassed the on-hand support equipment.

Chapter 4 discusses parts availability. Developing product plan Movement of inventory and maintenance plans Change management within planning processes Ensuring tight feedback with execution branch on execution details Execution Process Branch is responsible for: However, the ALC workforce appears to be constrained in product support sustainment activities in much the same way that other similar Air Force-wide organizations are suffering workforce shortages.

My presentations Profile Feedback Log out. The committee repeatedly asked the questions: Laudably, the Air Force acquisition and sustainment communities are working together and embrace the concept shown in Figure It is most noteworthy that 1, applicants sought this type of professional and personal development in its first year alone.


These are just two of a select few of the many policy impediments that affect the ALCs in their sustainment efforts. Page 64 Share Cite. They have attained substantial process controls and quality measures at the highest levels of the industry. Although technology insertion is covered in depth in Chapters 5 and 6the committee notes here that it observed a limited amount of technology insertion into weapon system and commodity parts and into supporting maintenance equipment at the ALCs.

The committee did so briefly, not knowing what it would find, but recognizing that benchmarking—good or bad—affects thought processes. This transformation will offer vast improvements to the effectiveness and costs associated with logistics support to combat forces. Ensure functional policies as requested are communicated to the field. Who sets the goals?

The AFGLSC assumed responsibility for the Air Force reparable parts supply chain in March 14 and is tasked with assuring the availability of reparable parts to both base-level maintenance activities and depot maintenance production activities. As discussed in Chapter 3the Air Force has elog211 in plant and equipment extensively over the past 8 years. Looking for other ways to read this?

Numerous processes under eLog21 are designed to improve the governance of sustainment and the effectiveness and efficiency of the processes. However, for the upper tier of readiness and engineering critical parts with few qualified suppliers, the market approach with alignment to key qualified suppliers is more appropriate.

Actually, the committee found this refreshing, even though there are delicate issues requiring higher-level Air Force involvement, albeit not at an excessive level that might stifle local execution. For the ALCs to be effective, data must become the key element in their efforts. Personal communications with committee, January 31, That is, customers are surveyed and the results graphically displayed.

In fact, the majority of respondents were unable to respond in detail. These employees then reported to the DLA Distribution Command; they were no longer part of the organization responsible for producing the maintenance results, and their objectives and performance reviews were not driven by the ALC. Accessed May 3, It is important to realize that all of these factors are inter-related and inter-dependent on an ongoing continuum that affects the ability of the ALC to meet the sustainment goals that are established above the ALC commander.

There was enough evidence to suggest that the many pieces of the metric result in no one fully taking accountability and responsibility for the performance.

The Navy faced challenges in the late s and early s much like those faced by the Air Force today—in terms of readiness, support, and understanding and controlling costs. Login or Register to save!
