Key Challenge: Managing Weapons Systems Availability for the Warfighter Customer While Maintaining Profitability

Commercial Airline
  • Ensuring overall mission capability of weapon systems for land, air, sea and space
  • Poor compliance with Performance-based Logistics (PBL) performance metrics
    • Visibility/actionability to warfighter customer data
    • End-to-end supply chain view
  • PBL profitability and operational excellence to the warfighter customer
    • Introduction of new weapon systems into sustainment operations without trained workforce
    • Increasingly demanding customer expectations
      • The need to deliver more availability out of a weapon system with fewer resources
      • Reduced warfighter budgets
    • Increasingly complex weapon systems
      • More “sensored’ assets
      • Capitalizing on the DoD’s effort around the “Third Off-Set Strategy”

One of the greatest Service Supply Chain challenges is the optimized management of materials for complex assets such as aircraft or weapon systems.


Meeting flight schedules, complying with FAA requirements, and ensuring overall airworthiness of an aircraft fleet are daunting tasks.


Weapon systems must be available when needed.


The synchronization of maintenance schedules with the required materials is essential to meeting committed customer delivery dates.
