Abstract : The U.S has entered into many military treaties around the globe. In the course of these treaties, the U.S. has given away many billions of dollars worth of military equipment. The recipient nations of this equipment seldom have the means to repair and maintain it, and thus, the U.S. is expected to come to their aid. This support usually comes in the form of a request to an ALC inventory of a part that has not been used by the operational Air Force in twenty years. For example, many South American countries still fly B-25's, and parts for these planes must still be kept in stock. These requests for outdated equipment obviously greatly compound the problems that AFLC has to work with. Hopefully, we have given the manager of these items a few small tools in coping with one of the biggest stocking headaches they have, the low demand item.
