Abstract : Current Air National Guard (ANG) C-130H maintenance group organizational structure creates span of control imbalance for aircraft maintenance officers within the aircraft maintenance squadron (AMXS) and maintenance squadron (MXS). This research project will use the evaluation method to analyze the impact of moving one aircraft maintenance officer from the AMXS to the MXS in order to create two separate officer in charge billets within the MXS. This will be accomplished by comparing existing ANG C-130H maintenance group organizational structure to a notional organizational structure with these changes made. Four criteria will be used during the evaluation: cost, span of control, effects on professional development, and effects on management of aircraft maintenance. Due to today's environment of fiscal constraints and budget cuts, a lot of thought was put into how to reorganize existing aircraft manpower and without creating additional cost or manpower requirements. Through careful analysis it was determined that the notional change would improve span of control balance, professional development opportunities, and overall ability to manage aircraft maintenance. These improvements could be made by shifting a single ANG C-130H unit type code (UTC) during a scheduled UTC review. This report makes the recommendation that the ANG C-130H HFSVD UTC be reassigned from the AMXS to the MXS.
