Abstract:

The objective of the Air Force Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistics Support CALS Program is to improve weapon system reliability, supportability and maintainability, and to reduce the cost of weapon system acquisition and logistics support. As part of the Air Force CALS program, automation plans 7-10 years are being developed that define the infrastructure, functional requirements, technologies, and implementation strategy to receive, use, and decimate digital technical data. The Air Force CALS Program employs a phased Modular Planning Process MPP which 1 examines the current environment, 2 studies the opportunities and 3 plans the future direction. The areas of technical data currently being addressed are Technical Orders TOs, Product Definition Data PDD, and Logistics Support analysis LSA. The CALS PDD Current Environment Report documents the current functions, organizations, data, and applications for the acquisition, use, and management of PDD to support weapon systems. This report is the culmination of Phase I of the PDD module and provides a baseline for the development of a PDD Automation Plan.
