Describes a possible universal working method (COP) for the Air strength materiel sustainment approach (MSS). The authors first boost a COP according to the rules of effects-based measures, schwerpunkt (organizational focus), selection rights, and a nonmarket monetary framework, then they observe the COP to depot-level reparable part sustainment to demonstrate how the COP could increase total MSS potency and responsiveness.

McCamley's exciting learn of the world's biggest underground arsenal cuts via many years of hearsay and hypothesis to bare the flowery skill used to camouflage the location in the course of global battle II, a number of near-disasters, and a plan to the touch off the hidden reserves of ammunition in 1940 to avoid them from falling into German fingers.
From the instant guy discovered tips to ascend off the floor, the strategic value of air intelligence turned obvious. This rather new discipline_the first committed air reconnaissance missions have been undertaken in 1870 through the siege of Paris while tethered French balloons have been hired to identify enemy positions and direct artillery fireplace onto them_has built at an striking velocity.

While the Air Force has always had relatively better information about their plans and ﬁxed targets, this more dynamic, more accurate operational picture enabled it to improve its support to ground operations and to respond more rapidly to developing military opportunities. The concept of a common operating picture for ground forces ﬁrst emerged in 1997, as the Army sought to improve its own internal integration between their intelligence and operations branches (Glasser, 1997; King, 2000). While all the equipment and enabling systems were not fully deployed at the outset of Operation Enduring Freedom, the rapid successes in that operation led all services to acknowledge the importance of the COP capability and to accelerate or initiate eﬀorts to develop their own common operating pictures.
1 That MSS includes not only oﬃcial, organic agencies, such as ﬁnancial management, engineering, depot and base repair shops, and planners, but also other elements of a non-USAF supply chain that encompasses other DoD and contractor suppliers of maintenance, modiﬁcation, transportation, warehousing, and supply services. The USAF MSS is continually caught between two countervailing pressures: demands for increased eﬃciency and lower costs on one side versus demands for increasingly eﬀective sustainment of combat operations and peacetime training on the other.
In situations in which the dominant concern is the physical movement of forces or materiels in light of distances, terrain, changing situational conditions, and physical capacities, a GIS-based common operating picture can help planners and operational managers synthesize a more comprehensive assessment of the entire situation than would be possible otherwise. Moreover, by having access to the same common operating picture, personnel executing those plans can respond more rapidly to a changing situation because they will not need to wait for direction from higher authority to take responsible actions.
