Abstract:

The report evaluates the KO51 logistic support cost reports used by the Air Force Increase Reliability of Operational System IROS program. This program, in an effort to increase the reliability of operational systems, collects detailed cost data from these reports on weapon systems and subsystems. The KO51 cost reports were assessed by comparing their costs to reference costs from other data collection systems at the base and depot levels, for the Air Force Corsair II. It is seen that the KO51 reports do not reflect certain pertinent support costs, such as costs for weapon system aerospace ground equipment, maintenance, modification hardware, and certain spares even in those categories for which the KO51 reports do provide costs, they are reported incompletely and in a disproportionate manner. Recommendations are made for correcting and extending the IROS KO51 reports.
