One of the primary responsibilities of the Air Force Logistics Command AFLC is the determination of material requirements for Air Force centrally procured items 1p.1-1. A part of this responsibility is to insure that optimum material support is available with a minimum cost to the national economy 1p.1-1. In order to achieve this objective, the AFLC uses an economic order quantity EOQ philosophy whereby requirements for items are computed to maintain stock at a level which will both satisfy customer demands and provide the minimum ordering and holding costs 1p.2-1. EOQ items are nonrecoverable they can be thrown away after use and officially cataloged with expendability, recoverability, repairability category ERRC codes XB3 and XF3. These items are categorized based upon the dollar value of their projected annual demands or frequency of demands 3p.1-1. EOQ XB3 items are the repair parts that have a unit price of less than 10 or characteristically cannot be repaired. Upon failure or wearout, these items are removed from inventory 1p.2-1 and discarded. EOQ XF3 items are recoverable spare items that have a unit price of 10 or more but less than 100, and have characteristics which prevent repair 1p.2-1. These repair parts and spares are used as components of other items which can be repaired rather than discarded. These repairable items are recoverable, or exchangeable, assets. Author
