Abstract : The 'Global Power/Global Reach,' vision was the cornerstone for massive change in the Air Force. The Department of Defense now relies on the mobility of a smaller force instead of forward deployed forces. The vision refined in 1996, maintains the heavy dependence on mobility declaring it a vital core competency of the Air Force. With the nation's interest in mobility, the importance of Altus AFB becomes even greater. Altus currently resides in Air Education Training Command (AETC). The primary goal of this command was to produce mission ready students so the operational commands could devote their time and money on wartime missions. After extensive review of the status of student production in the 57AS, the C-141 maintenance performance, customer satisfaction rate, and what the impact of the civilian maintenance conversion at Altus has been, it is concluded that the 57AS and AETC meet the primary goal established in 1993. The customer is receiving mission ready students. The review also discovered that the maintenance conversion has caused considerable problems for Altus AFB that will have to be solved to keep the graduates on time and mission ready.
