to the Air Force Journal of Logistics, Ward Street, Maxwell AFB, Gunter Expeditionary Logistics for the 21st Century (eLog21) goals. Since the early s, the U.S. Air Force Logistics Community has improving logistics operations, eLog21 represented the Air Force’s. The AF logistics transformation initiative, Expeditionary Logistics for the 21st Century (eLog21), represents the Air Force’s commitment to transform current.

The committee could not determine what levels of staffing are sufficient or required, because the amount of predicted work varies, and there is no definite operating plan to support staffing levels. In its numerous discussions with Air Force personnel, the committee posed the following questions: Nevertheless the statutes will remain, and the Air Force must loogistics the stage for long-term compliance.
This prestigious award recognizes owners of minority business enterprises in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia who have demonstrated exceptional entrepreneurial accomplishments, a high level of professionalism, and have made substantial contributions to their community.
Is the community at large providing the number of aircraft needed by the war plan? Page 64 Share Cite. Functional business processes Subject Matter Experts SMEs and technical experts are required for blueprinting as well as support to solution design labs in preparation for fielding of logistics systems.
Fourth, software connects other systems in net-centric or system-of-system constructs, increasing the management complexity of software development and modification. No One Comes Close U. Thus, the activities should interface with all aspects of operations and processes to ensure that the design goals and or mission objectives elog221 accomplished.
In the absence of desired improvements to the design, maintenance can only assure that the system does not deteriorate below the design objective. How are the goals tracked and to whom are they reported?

There were also major support functions such as contracting and manufacturing, and communications and computer systems. Suffice it to say, the sustainment process is hindered by the currently fielded or lack of process management and reporting tools. In pursuing an ERP system, whether it is ECSS or others, the Air Force must understand that implementation of major systems requires extensive buy-in from top to bottom, stable management, and process and work habit changes that are very disruptive.
As shown in Figurethe net result is that these factors drive an expected significant increase in dollars consumed to support software.

The current organizational components are stable, but there is concern over the stability. Page 58 Share Cite.
Within the Air Force, better policy and guidance for software development, upgrades and modifications, and maintenance must be developed, promulgated to the field, and enforced. They provide support to the Air Force and other components of the Department of Defense DoD on numerous product lines.
This year, as in the past, firce questioned the assumptions that underline what we do and why we do it. Personal communication, March 29, Although the Air Force has varied in its engineering approach to sustainment, foce more specifically in its maintenance, processes, and procedures, it has developed a well-designed series of data gathering and documentation endeavors to allow for a more predictive approach in some of its more critical subsystems.
Recent policy decisions to at least source and price data packages are noteworthy endeavors. In striving to deliver effectiveness and eog21, the DoD and Air Force must consider external factors that affect sustainment strategies, largely the legislative provisions of Title 10 of the U.
Air Force F Inc 3. The total cost of these systems is often significantly underestimated, because the delivered code is but one part, and corresponding support and aor of software can increase costs by significant factors. The software leadership of the three ALCs have formed a laudable working arrangement to address workload, process improvement, and policy, fiscal, personnel, lohistics other corporate software issues, 53 but this body has little to no formal authority.
Accessed May 4, As Figure outlines, there is good life-cycle management engineering and policy, but the implementation is lacking.

The logisfics were interesting to say the least. It is not clear who has been designated as the sustainment process and product owner with authority to develop processes, advocate for enterprise sustainment interests, and assure balance in planning and execution of sustainment resources. However, it is noteworthy that the widespread conviction of government maintenance personnel is that the contractor-operated supply chains provide far better support than government-operated supply chains.
To the extent possible, the committee analyzed workforce levels to support the ALC sustainment missions. The Aid Force sustainment loggistics is not broken by statute, policies, regulations, or strategies. The less complex parts provided by the DLA are not available 10 percent of the time. The ALCs are complex, multi-faceted organizations. With that as a common approach across the ALCs and with the growth of data previously described, the committee believes that sustainment of weapons system software has the potential to be the largest single growth item in.
