system is a core platform of all levels of business of China Meteorological Administration (CMA) and also basic software developed targeting various professional application service platforms and undertakes the important mission of supporting the forecasting and early warning business of CMA.
Mission capable (MICAP
) data from 1 July 2009 through 30 June 2010, and from 1 July 2010 through 5 December 2010 for the 656 NSN/SRAN cases was also examined to see if the July 2009 and July 2010 RBL levels were sufficient to meet future demands.
While part of such a multiple discrepancy could be explained by different risk profiles, we believe that the MICAPs
would also be justifiably different for the two companies.
As identified earlier, the TDD standards for MICAPs
supporting combat missions at Bagram Airfield is approximately six and one-half days.
The MASS component utilizes data in a web-enabled, shared, single-entry, near real-time environment to support the management and sourcing of mission capable (MICAP
) and awaiting parts (AWP) back orders.
Bench stock is regularly available for particular users and available to all users for back orders and for all mission capable (MICAP
hours decreased by 62 percent at these bases 10 to 11 months before using COLT to 11 to 12 months after COLT started.
AFMC has tried and tested a variety of methods to set parts levels, but it continues to struggle with AWPs and MICAPs
. Most are caused by not having the right repair parts.
Under this concept, the ACC, AMC, and Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) RSS will be responsible for MICAP
, awaiting parts, and reserve-stock point replenishment support for all CONUS-based combat air forces (CAF), mobility air forces (MAF), and special operations forces (SOF) weapon systems, respectively.
The Air Force and Department of Defense (DoD) spend significant amounts of money each year shipping mission-capable (MICAP
) items throughout the world.
Items with large variations in pipeline quantities generally cause three times as many MICAPs
, as compared to items with less variability.
SAO quantified the differences between using availability-based (for example, EXPRESS) and UMMIPS-based business rules for repair and distribution prioritization and found that customer support (as measured by available aircraft, MICAPS
, and stockage effectiveness rate) was better when EXPRESS distribution and repair policies were used.
