Abstract:

In this research, we examine the Naval Sea Logistics Command s Continuous Integrated Logistics Support Targeted Allowancing Technique CILS TAT and the feasibility of program re-implementation. We conduct an analysis of this allowancing method s effectiveness onboard U.S. Navy Ballistic Missile Defense BMD ships, measure the costs associated with performing a CILS TAT, and provide recommendations concerning possible improvements to the existing CILS TAT model. This project studies the impact of CILS TAT on allowance effectiveness and identifies any correlations between allowance effectiveness rates, percentage of time free from casualty reports, and CILS TAT costs. In addition, the report addresses the impact of the brownout period of allowancing processes due to the implementation of the U.S. Navy Enterprise Resource Planning program. Our research concludes that CILS TAT was directly responsible for improved allowance effectiveness for more than one third of our sample during two separate analysis windows. We also noted that the process behind CILS TAT could be improved through the addition of mission criticality codes to the existing model.
