Abstract:

In 2013, Marine Aircraft Group 11 MAG-11 directed Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 11 MALS-11 to move Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 101 s VMFAT-101 inventory allowances from MALS-11 s warehouses to VMFAT-101 s squadron spaces. The intent of this policy was to decrease requisition delivery time and increase VMFAT-101 s aircraft readiness. In only one month, MALS-11 staged the appropriate inventory at the squadron along with a detachment of Marines to manage the material. We review the effects of the inventory move on MAG-11 as a whole, in terms of order lead time and capacity utilization. In addition, we examine the new inventory policy s other effects, such as workflow efficiency.
