  • The goal of the defense budget is to deliver a portfolio of capabilities to meet a spectrum of uncertain future security environments. Despite progress in recent U.S. Air Force capabilities-based programming efforts, many limitations persist, and there are many disconnects between capability assessments and programming.

  • Transforming from threat-based planning to capabilities-based planning has highlighted the need for the Air Force to be able to quantify quickly the manpower and materiel necessary to support a desired capability. From a logistical point of view, the transition accentuates the utility of having a rapid, analytical method for determining the total support required to deploy specified forces to bases across the full range of support infrastructures, including austere bases.

  • A growing body of research documents how innovative commercial firms are better managing their suppliers, supply base, and supply chains, and applying a number of best purchasing and supply management (PSM) practices, as recognized by research literature and practiced by innovative enterprises. These firms report that they have improved performance, reduced total costs, and limited risks through these practices. This documented briefing summarizes research on how the Air Force might use an analysis of its spending to develop better PSM practices and to...

  • In late December 1995, I got a call to come in and talk to one of my bosses at the Eglin Air Force Base. At the time, I was program manager for the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) missile. As soon as I got there, I was informed that I was being switched off JDAM to run the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) program, and I wasn’t happy about it at all...“I knew that at JASSM, I would have to start over and would probably have to cope with a more difficult environment. The original program manager of JASSM... was given two major mandates. The first was not...

  • This study should be of interest to both civilian and military consumers of analysis and the analysts and modelers who seek to inform development of military forces and doctrine. The work reported here was conducted in RAND’s National Defense Research Institute (NDRI) and Project AIR FORCE. These organizations are federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) for the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Staff, Unified Commands, and Defense Agencies; and for the United States Air Force, respectively....

  • This work evaluates a set of global forward support location (FSL) options for storing war reserve materiel (WRM). These option packages or “portfolios” have differing numbers and types of FSLs, e.g., land-based or afloat, and have differing allocations of WRM at the alternative sites. Evaluations of these packages address the effectiveness and efficiency of the options in meeting a wide variety of potential scenarios. In this monograph, we present capability-based analytic tools to evaluate the tradeoffs between various FSL options. A central element of our anal...

  • In recent years, the affordability of weapon systems has become increasingly important to policymakers in the Department of Defense and U.S. Congress. Aerospace industry analysts and some government officials have asserted that government cost estimates are based on outdated methods that do not account for the latest technological innovations. The authors of this report present the results of a RAND research study to update the methods for estimating military jet engine costs and development time.

  • This monograph describes a model for evaluating the combined capacity of organic (U.S. Air Force–owned and –operated) and contractor maintenance assets to meet aircraft programmed depot maintenance (PDM) workloads. The PDM Capacity Assessment Tool (PDMCAT) forecasts the average number of aircraft that will be in PDM status each year over several decades,1 based on the initial number of aircraft in PDM status, the physical capacity of the facility or facilities (number of docks available for conducting PDM work),...

  • This report describes an analysis of best commercial practices for purchasing facilities and food services that are analogous to services the Air Force purchases to support its installations. We examine whether and how commercial firms apply performance-based practices in these service contracts and draw out relevant and potentially actionable “lessons learned” for the Air Force.

  • Where the two terms differ is in the imposition by organisations of courteous or forced ritual behaviour on employees – a modern phenomenon. Insincerity is concealed, leading to the whimsical even offensive notion that we are all air hostesses now. There are moral implications here too. Sprezzatura could be aligned to the moral theories of hedonism and egoism – where the focus is on the individual who decides to pursue a working life of fulfilment based on self interest, by the appearance of relaxed competence that may or may not be borne out by actual effectiveness at work....

  • Beside the effect of gravitational forces, the water level in Sai Gon-Dong Nai River System is also affected by non gravitational forces such a wind, air pressure, rainfall and sea level rise. The purpose of this paper is to simulate the water level of these river based on the tidal and non-tidal constituents, from that assess the role of non-tidal constituents to water variation. In this study, the none-tidal data used includes the wind field at surface, sea level pressure and the rainfall in Sai Gon- Dong Nai Basin. With the analyzed data series from 1980 to 2007, the results...
