Abstract : The U.S. Air Force maintains an inventory of over $30 billion in aircraft reparable spare parts and spends between $2 billion and $3 billion a year to buy and repair them. To determine these buy and repair requirements, guide the distribution of these expensive assets among Air Force bases and depots around the world, and track demand history and item characteristics, the Air Force has built and operates a complex interconnected set of automated systems. In the 1990s, the Air Force recoverable spares logistics systems are undergoing unprecedented review and change. These changes include stock funding of depot-level reparables, inventory reduction programs, lean logistics, reengineering, and the changes flowing from the Air Force Materiel Command's Senior Level Management Course. Are the current and planned changes to the way the Air Force computes requirements, allocates levels and resources, and distributes assets consistent and compatible with each other and with senior leadership's vision?
