Abstract : The management Sciences Division (HQ AFMC/XPS) conducts and sponsors studies and research of significant logistics issues. We use, modify, and develop new or improved methods, models, and tools to manage materiel resource. Our goal is to quantify the relationships between alternative material resources and resultant aircraft availability and sustainability so that AFMC can prioritize and justify its investments in those resources. We work toward this goal by performing studies for customers in the headquarters and by pursuing a few internally developed projects which have significant potential for providing valuable insights into these relationships. In 1992 we focused on four major areas--Distribution and Repair in Variable Environments (DRIVE), Weapon System Management Information System (WSMIS) enhancements, Engine Pipeline Studies, and the cost and responsiveness implications of a number of specific alternatives designed to reduce logistics costs. In 1993 we plan to continue in these areas. In addition, we will spend more time helping to improve AFMC business practices; posturing AFMC for the future; assisting AFMC, and the Air Force, with the transition to two levels of maintenance; and working with the Joint Logistics Systems Center (JLSC) to develop and deploy assessment and requirements processes that can be used throughout the DoD.
