One of the tools the Air Force is using to improve its logistical support to the warfighter is purchasing and supply-chain management (PSCM). But other factors likely were changing at about the same time, which might influence the relationship of the PSCM initiative to the supply chain’s ability to support the warfighter. To evaluate whether PSCM is doing what it is intended to do, and how w......

The Air Force uses thousands of different items to support its aircraft. Most of these parts seldom need replacement. Nevertheless, difficulties in attaining them can affect aircraft availability. Furthermore, some of these parts can be more difficult, and expensive, on average to manage, given that they may have relatively higher unit costs owing to fixed costs such as physical plants, manufactur......

Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom have placed great demands on the Air Force's highly skilled contracting workforce. This report examines "reachback" — the use of contracting capability outside the theater of operations to accomplish contracting tasks for customers in the theater — as a potential means for reducing the deployment burden on military personnel. The authors an......

This Note documents the results of an analysis of two novel approaches to the production of liquid fuels from coal and oil shale that might offer major benefits over current fossil fuel technologies. The two concepts considered were lignin/coal/oil coprocessing, and aboveground retorting of oil shale using high-power microwaves. The authors analyzed the potential product cost impacts of both conce......
