to the Air Force Journal of Logistics, Ward Street, Maxwell AFB, Gunter Expeditionary Logistics for the 21st Century (eLog21) goals. 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.

The realities listed in Figure are accepted at face value as policies to be updated over time; however, they address a myriad of influences ellg21 players—statutes, policies, programs, strategies, organizations, and more. The commander generally had authority, responsibility, and accountability for the range of resources available within normal constraints to execute the programs.
The committee discussed the AA metric at length.

These centers are designated by the Service Secretaries and offer the industrial complex the opportunity to partner with commercial industry to gain technological investment and better support future technologies. The details in Figure clearly show that the each of the initiatives listed on the left has ample, detailed process flow information that will drive toward execution and completion.
In addition, responsibility for managing nearly all remaining non-reparable items expendables was transferred from the Air Force to the DLA center in Richmond, Virginia. Also, you can type in a page number and press Enter to go directly to that page in the book. The company matched every dollar donated.
Figure notionally provides a side-by-side comparison of commercial business operations and accountability to what is considered to be the Air Force model.
Clearly, the ALCs have undergone a great deal of organizational change within the past 20 years. While there are a range of indicators resulting from the maturity assessments and root-cause analysis, the weapon system data analysis clearly shows that performance-based outcome-based product support strategies, particularly when coupled with government-industry partnering approaches, have consistently delivered improved materiel readiness across numerous weapon system applications over the past decade.
During subsequent discussions, it became evident that a final decision on the C supply support has not been made. The Air Force planning and budgeting processes have the capability to successfully address the forecasting and distribution of funds at a high level. Looking for other ways to read this? The committee did not detect any reluctance or inability by ALC program office personnel to accomplish technology insertion, including the associated master firce and the execution, when opportunities arose.
Expeditionary Combat Support System (ECSS)
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.
Figure highlights partnerships strategies to be considered. By meeting warfighter requirements on time and affordably, the future logistics enterprise will be Customer Focused. Thus, the committee seriously questions the validity of this statement over the longer term.
Unlike the Army, the Navy has significant commonality with Air Force systems and resourcing.
Maintenance of complex equipment is as much about information as it is about the ability to execute the actual work. As directed by the TOR, the. All of these processes must come together for an ALC to fulfill its mission to provide support to the airr who rely on the ALC products and services to fulfill their missions.
Other important initiatives have similarly detailed information charts.
Each ALC was represented by its commander, with the attendance of both senior military and civilian leadership. Page 47 Share Cite. However, the committee did find appropriate DoD instructions and policies on spare parts management and ample Air Force guidance and direction on material management.
Therefore, the Air Force initiated transitions of more systems to contactors, such as the C under a Total System Performance Requirement TSPR contract followed by a CLS arrangement, or the mature F system to a Total System Support Requirement TSSRwhich usually resulted in superior performance plus or minus the quality of the initial statement of work, defined metrics, and clear incentives.
These include legislation that specifies the definition of depot maintenance 10 U. At the highest levels, there is a lack of measures and objectives for productivity and effectiveness. Air Force Policies for Software Sustainment Currently, no reasonable, concrete definition of software maintenance exists. 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 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.

There is a willingness to change to improve processes, but pockets of insular thinking remain, which is not unusual in organizations the size of the ALCs. Product Lifecycle Management or PLM will integrate engineering and execution functions and provide lifecycle view of assets. Neither the DoD nor the Air Force has adopted forxe single, integrated, fact-based, analysis-derived process for determining the actions necessary to ensure the integrity of operational systems throughout their life cycles even though the Air Force aif that it has employed the Reliability Centered Maintenance RCM and Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis FMECA processes since the late s.
Identify and make recommendations regarding incorporating sustainability into future aircraft designs. When parts support across all ALCs is considered, the poor performance is systemic, and sustainment activities are not resourced for effective and efficient operations. Typically, software development and sustainment have nearly identical processes. The primary issues with the future software enterprise are driven by two long-standing heuristics: In striving to deliver effectiveness and efficiency, the DoD and Air Force must consider external factors that affect sustainment strategies, largely the legislative provisions of Title 10 of the U.
There are disconnects between the engineering resources needed to support production and the resources provided. The AFMC develops, tests, fields, and sustains weapon systems. As outlined above, the processes used to determine appropriate maintenance and sustainment actions are engineering-based, have evolved over the past four decades, and are fully integrated in the commercial aviation world.
