6. Dispatcher Removal of Equipment
Equipment that was removed from a garrison location activity to support field operations results in shortfall that cannot be addressed from remaining inventory equipment is essential for activity to achieve field training objectives, mission readiness, or both prior to deploying planning and execution in field exchanges information with services and joint logistics, movement and distribution systems.
7. Dispatcher Utilise Reset Playbook
Equipment Reset Playbook informs logistics process of the methods by which equipment will be retrograded, allocated and distribute of equipment to operating forces upon redeployment and retrograde instructs embarkation/ logistics teams on where each equipment item will go and provides key information on transfer of forces and materiel to support another operational requirements or return personnel, equipment, and materiel to demobilisation stations
for reintegration and/or out-processing.
8. Dispatcher Assure Item Supply
Listed Items under this category are furnished by the supply system when end item is issued to be transferred with the during redistribution or other changes of custody designed to function as record keeping of loaded unit, stock/forecast supply system functions provided to unit to facilitate physical implement requirements and performance measures receiving, issuing, and accounting for material
9. Dispatcher Address Total Force Structure
Authoritative source for force structure automated work request flow capabilities across enterprise business and field-level mission areas planning and decision support within integrated field unit support decision processes and reporting requirements identifies new capabilities, improvements to existing capabilities, and elimination of redundant or unneeded capabilities capture both current needs and future needs by assessment/experiment
10. Dispatchers Identify Supply Account
Authorise supply account maintained and administered by property control team direct items not issued with the end item during initial provisioning and subsequent fielding using unit, not to exceed the stated quantity, must requisition items in this category possible to hold less than stated quantity if the item does not meet reported criteria
Top 10 Questions Highlight Utility of Real-Time Logistics Reporting of Supply Line Performance
1. Are Logistics Metrics given strategic priority to directly control behaviour and supply line performance?
2. Have limited number of key measurements been established to keep supply line objectives on track?
3. Are labour-intensive measurements that at first seem relevant of little practical use?
4. Are wrong measures being picked and leaving out important ones could lead to lower supply line performance?
5. Are supply line based drivers only effective on after-the-fact measures, like customer loss or fiscal performance?
6. What is total cost of getting product availability to the point of consumption to include materiel stocks and transit?
7. Is supplier responsible for the fact that products have poor
availability for field-level use?
8. Is supplier responsible for transit operations of downstream customers paying for pick up products on location?
9. Is upstream component parts supplier responsible for the fact that order could not be produced due to lack of supplier part?
10. Is supplier responsible for on-time delivery to customer after transit order?
Top 10 Reset includes actions restore unit equipment to combat capability levels required for future mission.
There are three components to reset:
Repair – The restoration of an item to serviceable condition through correction of a specific failure or unserviceable condition.
Recapitalisation – Extending the equipment’s useful life by returning it to near zero mile/zero hour condition with either original performance specifications or upgraded performance specifications.
Replacement – Acquisition of new equipment to replace battle losses, washouts, obsolete equipment, and equipment deployed and left in theater but needed for critical missions.
Each helicopter is inspected from nose to tail. Combat damage and crash damage are asssessed for repair, airframe interior and exterior are cleaned to remove the sand. RESET inspections are performed of the following helicopter components:
