Abstract : This Note identifies some major sources of variability in the Air Force's budget forecasts for depot-level component repair. These forecasts are estimates of the amount of money the depot system, both organic and contractor, will need to repair components that: cannot be repaired at base-level maintenance facilities. This is referred to as the Organization and Intermediate Maintenance (OIM) requirements for repair of items that are identified as Not Repairable This Station (NRTS) by base level maintenance personnel; and the depot repairs as part of an overhaul or repair of a higher assembly or end item, such as an airplane or missile. This is referred to as the Nonjob Routed (NJR) requirement. These two categories of components constitute the component repair portion of the Depot Programmed Equipment Maintenance (DPEM) budget.
