Abstract:

The 309th CMXGMXCD Landing Gear Repair Squadron is currently operating with less than optimal equipment, facilities, and manufacturing methodologies. The current methods of production are batch-and-queue in nature, task-oriented, and functionally isolated. Current production systems are designed and centered on types of processes performed in each area, resulting in excessive travel time and distance between components through the facility. Most of the industrial processing equipment is aging and at the point of needing to be refurbished or replaced. Existing equipment is prone to long downtimes due to long lead supply times, out-of-business vendors, and obsolete parts. Hill AFB requires a facility that would accommodate an increased workload capacity and effectively adapt to changes in the workload mix. The addition of modernized equipment and lean manufacturing techniques would allow for quality to be maintained at the manufacturing cell level, thereby producing high-quality, repaired end items efficiently and dependably. The Proposed Action also provides the benefit of increasing workload capabilities.
