Abstract : Declining budgets and rapidly evolving technology place a high degree of stress on Naval aviation logistics support systems. Information dependent, these programs rely heavily on labor intensive processes to collect data, convert it to electronic format and transmit to the appropriate data base. Unfortunately, inadvertent errors continue to plague the Program Manager, Configuration Manager, Logistician, Fleet Operator and Maintainer. Likewise, accidental loss of important repair and operating history (Scheduled Removal Card) is causing unnecessary repair and pre-mature condemnation of Life-limited components. The use of Automatic Identification Technology to identify, collect, and transmit data to the data base, offers the potential to mitigate the effects of human induced error.
