Abstract:

This report by Desmatics, Inc. is the fifth in a series of volumes which review procedures used by the Weapon System Support Cost WSSC subsystem of the Air Force Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs VAMOSC system to allocate operating and support costs to Air Force weapon systems. This volume presents the results of an examination of the algorithms and data WSSC uses to allocate costs incurred in operation of the Air Force Logistics Command AFLC depots. Four cost categories are included in this report depot maintenance, general depot support, depot installation support and sustaining investment. Desmatics makes several specific recommendations for changes in WSSC processing, and raises several questions for review by Office of VAMOSC personnel pursuant to possible development of additional changes. Desmatics conclusions and recommendations are listed in this report, together with accompanying comments from the Office of VAMOSC.
