Abstract : This study analyzes data on selected Air Force systems, subsystems and components with regard to lead time. The first phase of the study resulted in a preliminary analysis of the data and highlighted areas for more detailed analysis. This report focuses accordingly on five components -- Bearings, Castings, Connectors, Forgings, and Integrated Circuits -- which have long leads critical to subsystem and system delivery times. Reasons for increased lead times are provided and recommendations made for actions which could result in decreased lead times in the future. A definition of a model for forecasting shortages of critical parts and materials is outlined in the final chapter.
