Abstract:

This report examines the procurement, management, and maintenance of USAF vehicles. It is based on available data, necessary assumptions, and an objective analysis. The requirements for a given vehicle is determined by the users justification and approved on a judgement basis. It is replaced using data that is unselective and is not based on full cost. Further, a budget decision is often made on noneconomic criteria. Vehicles must compete with other projects in the Operations and Maintenance category. A subjective decision is made on which items are most important. Frequently vehicles are not purchased in a timely manner. Once in the USAF inventory, vehicles are maintained by the transportation organizations. The basis for manning of these units is called a vehicle equivalent, a subjectively determined measure of repair difficulty.
