Abstract:

The U.S. Air Force Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs VAMOSC Program Office is responsible for the development of the Air Force VAMOSC data systems. VAMOSC currently consists of three data systems that collect and report the operating and support OS costs for USAF aircraft at the missiondesignseries level, components of aircraft systems at the work unit code level, and ground communications-electronics systems at the typemodelseries level. The three data systems are Weapon System Support Cost WSSC, Component Support Cost System CSCS, and Ground Communications-Electronics C-E. The Air Force has several uses for VAMOSC data, including 1 to support planning and budgetary input to the Defense System Acquisition Review Council DSARC process for acquisition of new weapons systems, and 2 to aid the Program Objective Memorandum POM process to identify existing systems for possible modification. The objective of Task 1 is to identify the current and future data requirements imposed on the VAMOSC system. The data requirements will drive the evaluation of alternative technologies that will process and store VAMOSC-produced data. We employed two techniques to obtain the desired information 1 a survey of the current and potential VAMOSC user community, and 2 measurement of the current VAMOSC data systems.
