Abstract:

There is tremendous potential at AMARC to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations by reengineering their computer processes. AMARCs justification for maintaining a standard base supply system SBSS host account is 30 years old and the reasons for the host account versus a satellite account are now in question. The second problem is the Air Force may be buying and repairing assets maintained at AMARC because there is no automated way to allow inventory managers either wholesale or retail visibility of items at AMARC to satisfy other Air Force needs or preclude buys of new items. The conclusions of this study are 1 The AMARC SBSS must remain a host account at the current RPS manning levels due to the unique AMARC Edits and Analysis program. The SBSS doesnt allow program bank differences between satellite and host accounts. 2 The Air Force lacks data system visibility of assets stored at AMARC. 3 To preclude needless buys, the Air Force needs an automated process to generate and access the list of parts stored at AMARC. 4 The Air Force needs an automated process to determine if AMARC is a source for MICAP and other requirements.
