Abstract : The following conclusions were drawn regarding logistics selective systems management: (1) The Air Force needs a formal program to select systems which merit systems management; (2) The Air Force needs a procedure for periodically evaluating each systems' requirement for preferred management and for phasing-out those systems from the systems management concept where the requirement no longer exists; (3) Officially, criteria do not exist for the phase-out of systems from the systems management concept and such guidance should be established; (4) Until cost and management evaluation reports provide proper data (such as accurate AOCP reports, complete costing informats), judgment decisions must be used in the selective management processes; (5) An extended area of common interest between the Air Force Systems Command (AFSC) and Air Force logistics command (AFLC) has been created by the organization of these two commands; and (6) The automatic re-supply logistic system is not being given fair consideration.
