Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the efficiency and effectiveness of the Advanced Traceability and Control System (ATAC). Prior to the implementation of ATAC, end users of depot level repairables sent retrograde carcasses to various organic and commercial facilities for repair and overhaul. Due to many factors, the depot level carcass tracking system was unable to prevent the loss or delay of many retrograde carcass's through the transportation pipeline. These problems resulted in erroneous charges to the type commander's operating funds, unnecessary investment in inventory levels to meet demand, and a possible lessened fleet readiness due to shortages for critical repair items. The Navy's solutions to this problem is ATAC. The ATAC program simplifies the retrograde turn-in process while providing improved traceability and accountability throughout the return pipeline. Keywords: Logistics support; Theses.
