The consequences of these actions on finances, readiness, and ALC work loading are discussed in Chapter 4. These reductions were due to several factors, including more aircraft and more flying hours to cover fixed costs and changes in contract structure and performance standards.

The software workforce can be maintained and grown, but it will be easier at some locations than others. About Oakland Consulting Group, Inc. Although performance was generally considered excellent, the data were often owned by OEMs, and therefore future competitions were limited at best, and the cost factor appeared, to many individuals, to be expensive.

The company matched every dollar donated. Accessed May 5, The complexity of the Air Force sustainment enterprise is reflected in the myriad of statutes, regulations, and policies that the Air Force must consider when.

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.

Without clearly defined responsibilities and prudent metrics to determine results, system breakdowns are commonplace. The AFMC develops, tests, fields, and sustains weapon systems. A very interesting aspect of the software maintenance organization and processes at the ALCs is the lack of significant organizational and higher Headquarters management oversight. The genesis and purpose of the rule elgo21 understood; however, its constraints impact product support, depot maintenance planning, and warfighter asset availability.

Brigadier General Arnold W. Figures in Chapter 1. Despite lkgistics challenges presented by the statutes, policies, and processes and the ever-evolving and never-settling engineering and data efforts described above, the senior members of the Air Force sustainment community understand their plight and are working to improve the sustainment enterprise.


Based on feedback from you, our users, we’ve made some improvements that make it easier than ever wlog21 read thousands of publications on our website. Ogden Air Logistics Center Factsheet.

The Air Force should pursue a blended partnership between ALCs and contractors throughout the entire software development and sustainment life cycle, commencing before Milestone A. The Ai over the years have acquired a large and growing workload. Although significant work remains, there is recognition within the Air Force that sustainment is important, complex, and expensive.

Until recently, HVM was in prototype stage. This workload reflects the increasing trend of electronics, avionics, computers, and ultimately software in weapon systems.

Furthermore, these measures should be at a level that reflects sustained implementation of process improvement initiatives, such as cost-reduction incentives and not just increasing sustainment costs driven by aircraft aging. They will be used for contract management and managing inventory and warehousing.

When a goal is generally understood, then there are more likely to be a common purpose and higher probability of success. Often these programs are local efforts with little or no central focus on efficiency improvements.

During tours of the ALCs, the committee searched for evidence of strong planning and execution of maintenance programs. Figure highlights partnerships strategies to be considered. At the apex of the pyramid is the operational commander or supported commander who sets the tempo for the overall operation and is in fact the NAE commander.

The effects of surged workload on the workforce are obvious. For the first time, the Air Force will have universal access and visibility to consistent, near real time information, allowing for proactive planning and scheduling and total asset visibility across the Air Force that will provide superior information to decision makers and enhance war fighter capability.

These include legislation that specifies the definition of depot maintenance 10 U. Eog21, the committee repeatedly heard comments about poor supply support to repair lines across all three ALCs. Ultimately, the lack of a single, disciplined process by which the Air Force determines its maintenance actions puts its engineering efforts into llogistics reactive posture, which is particularly troubling given the aging fleet the Air Force must operate now and into the future.

A second area, like engineering support, is DLA support to the production lines. Mismatches remain between support to production activities and the growth of requirements at the production level.

Compliance with statutes conflicts with the desire to bring weapon system economics into balance and to simultaneously support the weapon system at the optimal level. Lastly, labor agreements impact many parts of the sustainment process. Without a firm and universally accepted definition of depot maintenance, program managers will make decisions that best optimize their own programs.

Air Force F Inc 3. Personal communication to logisyics committee, April 27, 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. Statutes have sometimes served as an excuse from making hard decisions, and these decisions do involve economic trade-offs.
