Abstract : The aircraft replenishment spares budget process is dynamic and is subject to considerable change between the time the budget requirement is submitted and the time the parts are purchased. The variables used in the D041 requirements computation system will change. The constant changing of variables' values is referred to as churn. Churn causes the individual item requirements to change from the budget requirement to the buy requirement. This paper examined the affect of churn on the budget requirement in terms of dollars. The study concludes that the budget processes is good and that the dollars requested are within plus or minus 10% of the amount of dollars required at the buy point. Keywords: Air Force procurement, Air Force budgets, Contract administration, Spare parts.
