I am researching how both Battle Spares and Forward Based Spares are managed and what determines if it is a spare. Trying to find out information on both Battle Spares and Forward Based Spares; it seems the terminology has changed over the years as well as where information can be found ie. instructions (P-485) and policies. Could you assist me to help identify who manages, what is a requirement to be a spare and what instructions or policies provide information?
highly encourage comments, examples, disagreement, positive feedback and continued discussion.
What is the best way to track maintenance related data (i.e. MTBF, MTBCF, MTTR, etc.) for a COTS product? Is there a class for this?
Background: I work on a space environmental monitoring system that is 100% COTS. The system is fielded and maintained by a contractor and they do not currently track failure rates of the system. There are other users of this COTS product but it is a very specialized piece of equipment and there is no maintenance data available on the internet or from the manufacturer for things like MTBF, MTBCF, MTTR, etc... I would like to start tracking this data but I'm not sure how to go about it.
What governing documentation defines Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) Management as obsolete?
Background: I'm presently reviewing SECNAV INST 5400.15D, DON Research, Development, Acquisition, and Associated Life-Cycle and Logistics Management policy and I would like to know if the terminology of logistics management / ILS management should be replaced with Integrated Product Support and Product Support Management respectively.
