Abstract:

This thesis is an in-depth study of the intransit segment of the United States Air Force reparable pipeline. Previous research has not adequately discussed the role of the intransit segment in the overall pipeline. As a result, this thesis identifies the characteristics of this particular segment by discussing the following topics various intransit components, reparable asset flow times, intransits role under two-level maintenance, intransit constraints, and data sources used to manage asset movements within the pipeline. The study uses a thorough literature review, personal interviews, and an evaluation of asset flow time data to compare current standards to what actually exists in this particular pipeline segment. Applying Theory of Constraint principles, the constraints identified in the studys interviews, together with the research findings, are compiled to develop an effect-cause-effect diagram of the intransit system. The definitive thesis goal is accomplished by constructing an enhanced process model of the intransit pipeline segment.
