* LR200729700, Forward Stocking of Air Force Managed Items at DDKS, Consulting
Although the methodology is applicable to any potential theater, only United States Air Force Central Command (USCENTAF) with storage at Defense Distribution Depot Kuwait (DDKS), is considered in detail.
Items that are economical to forward stock should be stored at the Defense Distribution Depot Kuwait (DDKS), Southwest Asia until storage space is available at the forward bases.
Table 7 shows the performance if the time from DDKS to the forward base is lowered to 5 days.
Although the same amount of items is forward stocked, more items are economical with a shorter pipeline from DDKS. Savings are increased by approximately $85K ($832K-$747K) over a 5-year period.
If the ship time from DDKS is reduced to 5 days, 537 items would be economical.
