We recommend DoD conduct site visits of Fleet Equipment Upgrade/Repair Sites on regular basis to determine patterns of replacement part sourcing techniques on work orders subject to scripted conference call connections with suppliers.

Original supplier sources are often utilised more frequently at Upgrade/Repair sites because sometimes equipment parts from other sources do not fit as well into standardised work order schedule policies/procedures.

The key work order logistics factor for upgrade/repair operations administrators cited in our Job Site Visits was availability of replacement equipment parts.

Original Supplier Sources for equipment parts may not be best choice & mission requirements are another major influence on how upgrade/repair sites establish policy/procedures for Jobs in Work Orders.

Site visit executive has determined decisions made based on field-level mission requirements often impose Fiscal & Schedule restrictions influencing determination of best suppliers to source from for equipment upgrade/repair jobs.

Fleet Equipment upgrade/repair process rules define what supply line information is to be routed and to what installation. For example, dispatchers can set up logistics rules defining conditions instances work orders must meet before equipment upgrade/repair processes advance.

 Automated work order prompts to the next equipment condition tracking activity are embedded in Logistics processes, as well as site visit-specific schedules governing installation receipts of Upgrade/Repair Priority Approval requests based on key supply line commitment criteria.

The route tracker application uses scripted equipment condition evaluations determining the next upgrade/repair activity based on information dispatchers set up in spare parts-specific attribute structures, such as work order status & recipient rules determining account flash routing to installations.

As with routes, dispatchers determine the complexity of equipment upgrade/repair rules according to the schedule requirements of installations. For example, logistics considerations can set up work orders to progress to the next step only when predefined supply line threshold values have been met.

Routes define the path along which equipment upgrade/repair processes move a work order. Depending on site visit requirements, routes can be relatively simple & sequential, or increasingly complex, with joins or splits, parallel routing, iterative routing, loops and so on.

Dispatchers can set up equipment upgrade/repair categorisation series by creating sequentially constrained sourcing subroutines so one process calls another on the supply line. This procedure is especially useful when dispatchers need to reuse spare parts-specific components within other processes.

Visiting site visit Executive has empowered dispatchers to review, approve, or reject work orders. After a work order is created, route tracker applications send account flashes to notify the repair/upgrade site visit location responsible for reviewing & approving the work order.

When dispatchers approve a work order, the route tracker application sends an account flash to the next installation on the work order approval route. If work orders are rejected, the route tracker application sends an account flash back to the originator of the work order.

Site Visit Executive has established Upgrade/Repair Logistics Requirement Reminder Sets to trigger Scheduling Workbench programme functions so dispatchers can review account flash properties & provide the ability to cross-reference spare parts-specific components.

Dispatchers can also place a work order on hold if installations want to approve or reject the work order at a later time b/c supply line purchase receipt inquiries have determined mission requirements are not satisfactory.

During the approval process, the route tracker application generates Logistics report records for user-based approvals & rejections that have been composed upon comparison to template work orders run with supplier capacity plans.

If dispatchers must reject a work order after initially approving it, the route tracker application creates Upgrade/Repair report records for the rejection & stores the original approval record for supply line connection review.

Supply line report records are used to review spare parts-specific information & schedules about the work orders that dispatchers group into routing specifications.

Site Visit Executive can review information about the specific upgrade/repair tasks associated w/ the supply line, resource requirements, and so on. For example, dispatchers can create summary & detail schedule status information so work orders can be routed by installation.

Thanks for this blog really very helpful and useful for all keep doing in the same way with useful concepts. Keep doing in the same way with useful updates about supply line schedule functions for work order routing repair sites.


You should keep a schedule of maintenance of course. This is your direct duty.
