Abstract:

Task order no. 7 is composed of two phases. Phase l is a focus study on quality, time and cost improvements in masking methods currently used at the five Air Logistics Centers. This report addresses only Phase l. General conclusions of this study are 1 The wax masking process at Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center is the most advanced of the ALC plating shops, and more advanced than at many job shops in the private sector. 2 The plastic masking process at Ogden Air Logistics Center is costing much more than a wax masking process of comparable effectiveness, and 3 The wax masking processes at the other three ALCs are operating on par with private industry, but can be made more efficient and more productive by recommended small changes, which can be easily implemented, and by introduction of technologies developed in recent years since the shops were built or renovated. This document contains focus study and quick fix recommendations for all the centers Maskant Resource Control Centers RCCs.
