RAND developed a methodology to help understand and explain the differences between U.S. Air National Guard and active component aircraft maintenance productivity. This research focuses on maintenance options for supporting associate units, where the goal of the associate unit is to produce trained pilots in the most efficient manner possible. It evaluates maintenance options for U.S. Air Force associate units, where the goal of the associate units is to produce trained pilots in the most efficient manner possible.
The RAND Corporation was asked by the U.S. Air Force to carry out analyses needed to determine alternatives for the use of CONUS Centralized Intermediate Repair Facilities (CIRFs) that would provide increased maintenance efficiency (compared with traditional, decentralized structures) without reducing combat support capability. These CIRFs would provide off-equipment repair of propulsion and avionics components for the F-15, F-16, and A/OA-10. RAND developed an optimization-based analytic method for CIRF network design that identifies a range of cost-effective alternatives. Aircraft force structure bed-downs resulting from the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment (BRAC) recommendations were used in the analyses, and all CONUS active duty bases and Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Command installations were included, considering support to three tasking scenariosanormal peacetime training and readiness, Air and Space Expeditionary Force (AEF) deployment, and major regional conflicts (MRCs). General results from the analyses are: CONUS CIRF is a cost-effective maintenance strategy for nearly all commodities analyzed; potential manpower cost savings more than offset increased transport costs; CONUS CIRF total pipeline requirements generally are not excessive; many network designs are virtually equivalent in cost and performance; and large user bases are naturally attractive CONUS CIRF locations. The report also provides commodity-specific results and recommendations.
Recent Office of the Secretary of Defense planning guidance directs the services to plan for high levels of engagement and deployed operations, although their nature, locations, durations, and intensity may be unknown. This book synthesizes the results of the initial phases of a study of the basic issues and premises on which the Air Force plans, organizes, and operates its logistics enterprise.
