Abstract : This paper is an discussion of the adequacy of current supply performance measures and standards below the wholesale level given existing fiscal and doctrinal constraints. It's primary focus is on repair parts. Over the past decade there has been a shift from demand supported ASLs to decision based ASLs caused by fiscal and doctrinal policies, and the Force Modernization Program. This shift should trigger a review of the usefulness of many current supply performance measures and standards for two major reasons - either they are no longer controlled by the Support Supply Activity (SSA) or recent experience shows that the standards can not be achieved. Stockage constraints, the influx of Force Modernization items and related repair parts associated with displacement of old repair parts, policy to reduce ASL size and increase ASL mobility, have contributed to ASL turbulence. SSA's are required to maintain a high demand accommodation but have been effectively prevented from meeting this objective by other conflicting policies. As a result, performance measures such as demand accommodation, ASL size, and ASL turbulence are of questionable value in the current environment.
