This presentation will describe the new method the Air Force is using to compute deployment kits for consumable items the spares required to support a deployed aircraft squadron. The Air Force has used the Aircraft Sustainability Model ASM for many years to compute and assess kits for reparable items. Over the past year, ASM was modified to account for the uniqueness of consumable items. This presentation will discuss how ASM computes the range types of items and depth number of items for consumable kits by minimizing the total number of backorders. We also analyzed different selection methods that filter certain types of items to determine which one performed the best when compared to actual deployment situations. Kits computed by this new technique were used in the CENTCOM area starting in January and some preliminary results will be provided.
