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.

In pursuing an ERP system, whether it is ECSS or others, the Air Force must understand that implementation of major systems requires extensive buy-in from top to bottom, stable management, and process and work habit changes that are very disruptive. As individual weapon system programs evolve, the need for software staffing varies. Develop policy and issue AF implementation guidance for logistics support capabilities to ensure weapon system readiness for the user consistent with statutes, executive orders, and DOD issuances.

For example, the data presented in Figureadjusted as noted, indicate that compared to other organically supported and contractor-supported platforms, the C offers tremendous performance. Does determining what is or is not depot maintenance really make a difference to the outcome of the sustainment process?
Employees at all levels exhibited great attitudes and were frequently well-versed about, and clearly committed to, improvement activities. In many cases, short-term economics also drove decisions: Despite wlog21 known greater than 10 percent elogg21 in maintenance workload, an ALC was restricted by higher levels from hiring maintenance personnel to meet the growing workload. Strategies were examined from the perspective of how the Air Force got to this state and what have been the true lotistics.
The increased dependence on software is not restricted to DoD systems; it is also evident in commercial products, such as personal digital assistants, smart phones, games, and automobiles. As a result, the Navy initiated a complete review of, and revision to, its approach to aviation readiness and sustainment.
Although this may be acceptable, the Air Force has declared software a core maintenance area under the provisions of 10 U. Working for the Greater Good, pp. There is room for elob21 improvement in gaining flexible work rules to permit the workforce to be more versatile. It provides visibility into maintenance costs, equipment history and maintainability and reliability data.

Personal communication to the committee, April 27, Share buttons are a little bit lower. By providing actionable, integrated information accessible across the enterprise using COTS technology, the future logistics enterprise will have universal Actionable Information Available. Page 29 Share Cite. As the Air Force moves into new production modes such as High Velocity Maintenance and Repair Network Integration that demand higher flows through the repair cycle, the current parts situation will not be capable of sustaining these new processes.

The introduction of low observable technology presents additional workforce training requirements that must be addressed in the future.
The subsequent tasks include: The statutory definition of depot maintenance is, at best, ambiguous and subject to interpretation.
Although almost 1, personnel were transferred, the Air Force has placed some personnel into positions to fill the voids in staffing and experience. August 5, Time: Page 47 Share Cite. My presentations Profile Feedback Log out. Page 58 Share Cite. With that as a common approach across the ALCs and with the growth of data previously described, the committee believes that sustainment of weapons system software has the potential to be the largest single growth item in.
As the above quote shows, ILCM encompasses requirements, test, systems engineering, and sustainment, and, by its very framework, acquisition. To a serious extent, the supply chain causes great inefficiencies in logiatics depot maintenance and parts repair efforts. Having the proper data is essential to determining a contractor and Air Force blended work-sharing approach. The committee universally came to believe that AA is fragmented, and its accountability is such that it is not a measureable fkrce criterion for any single sustainment manager.
Furthermore, these charts are a key part of a bi-weekly Friday standup session with the FRCSW commander that highlights the production results since the last meeting.
Nevertheless, select parts of the plant and equipment do not meet current needs. To this end, the ALCs play a key, but not the only, role. Page 92 Share Logidtics. CMMI can be used to guide process improvement across a project, division, or an entire organization. To not do so ignores the fact that Title 10 has put the components on notice to achieve, and not necessarly cause, significant perturbations in the workforce. In fact, the majority of respondents were unable to respond in detail.
In elg21 a major system implementation, frequent organizational changes are anathema and will greatly hinder the success.

Although not a funding issue in the traditional sense, the ALCs need an enterprise management solution. As discussed earlier in this elog221, the spare parts organizational structures for the Air Force at large and for the depot maintenance lines, in particular, are broken, largely because no one officer is responsible for the supply chain.
Those computer software components and units whose errors can result in a potential hazard, or loss of predictability or control of a system. Elgo21 limitations on spare parts currently exist because of organizational alignment, material practices, and enterprise funding constraints that have pronounced impacts at the ALC maintenance levels.
