The contractors developed individual contract processes and procedures that may or may not have followed Air Force traditional practices. The Air Force should focus the same, arguably more, attention and investment as that given to equipment in the actual weapon system on tools used for software maintenance.

Nevertheless, progress toward this goal is being made as evidenced by new forcd interest and legislation, updated Department of Defense DoD policies, instructions, and reports, and substantial steps by the Air Force to incorporate an enterprise perspective into the acquisition and sustainment.

Laudably, the Air Force acquisition and sustainment communities are working together and embrace the concept shown in Figure ECSS will create an Air Force wide solution that exploits current technology and creates an integrated data environment.


Against the back-drop of these stark realities, the Air Force requested the National Research Council NRC of the National Academies, under the auspices of the Air Force Studies Board to conduct and in-depth assessment of current and future Air Force weapon system sustainment initiatives and recommended future courses of action for consideration by the Air Force.

From a broad perspective, the overall parts situation is logistcis another reflection of who is in charge or not in charge of elig21 sustainment process at the ALCs.
