Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to enable unit maintenance analysis functions to become a more productive part of the maintenance management process. Both the USAF IG FMI on quality and the USAF Audit Agency report on Maintenance Analysis Function in Flying Units were accurate in pointing out problem areas. This study determined the underlying causes of these problem areas selection of analysis personnel, education of assigned analysts, guidance given to the analysis functions, experience level of assigned analysts, and problems associated with data available to analysis. Based on the findings, we recommend the following The Air Force should raise prerequisites for entry into the career field, upgrade training requirements, restructure the Logistics and Management Development Centers LMDC DCM course, sponsor intercommand analysis conferences, publish an analysis guide and DCM handbook, and ensure unit analysis requirements are included in the Core Automated Maintenance System CAMS. Major air commands should reevaluate familiarization course requirements, sponsor intracommand analysis workshops, review placement of unit analysis functions, review information requirement taskings and ensure adequate training and software are provided to support future microcomputer procurements.
