The Directorate of Management Sciences AFLCXPS is comprised of three Divisions the Assessment Applications Division XPSA, the Concept Development Division XPSC, and the Consultant Services Division XPSM. We conduct and sponsor studies and research of significant logistics issues. We use, modify, and develop new or improved methods, models, and tools to manage logistics resources. Our goal is to quantify the relationships between alternative logistics resources and resultant aircraft availability and sustainability so that AFLC can prioritize and justify its investments in those resources. We work toward this goal by performing studies for customers in the headquarters and by pursuing a few internally developed projects which have significant potential for providing valuable insights into these relationships. In 1989 we focused on four major areas--Distribution and Repair in Variable Environments DRIVE, Weapon System Management Information System WSMIS enhancements, Engine Pipeline Studies, and the cost and responsiveness implications of a number of specific alternatives designed to reduce logistics costs. In 1990 we plan to implement the quarterly DRIVE algorithm, continue our enhancements of WSMIS in the Strategic Airlift area, complete our Engine Pipeline Studies, and expand our investigation of alternatives designed to reduce logistics costs.
