Abstract:

The Logistics Management Institute is assisting the Department of Defense in identifying and developing improved weapon system initial support management practices and techniques. This is a continuing task which to date has been based primarily upon a series of depth studies of major weapon system programs. In July 1962, an LMI report on the Titan II Program was released. This first ICBM system report was followed by the release of LMIs initial Minuteman Program study in March, 1963. The primary recommendations made in the two reports proposed organizations of professional Air Force provisioning specialists improved joint Service-contractor usage of weapon system support assets spares and Wing-level support equipment, facilities and support system knowledge and data and Resident Support Teams RSTs to perform continuous and responsive efforts to derive improved support systems at reduced costs. The material contained in these briefing notes is based upon LMIs recently completed follow-on initial support study which used the Minuteman Programs WS- 133A B as research vehicles.
