To meet Marine Corps objectives, we commissioned this case study to not only optimise current equipment product support Job Site operations and enhance dedication to satisfy Field-Level Troops demand signals, but also to provide Marine Corps with the tools, templates and real world strategies so Marines have capacity to sustain these improvements into the future.

We established the following Job Site scope areas, which framed the objectives of this Case Study:

1. Optimise allocation of Job Site product support resources, including oversight of routine, peak & specialty work orders

2. Design product support programmes for field level unit outreach at Job Sites, including mission-driven reporting & surveys

3. Propose product support approach for receipt of individualised Job Site service level work orders with field-level units

4. Maximise "wrench turning" produce at Job Sites, including product support programmes for continued training, incentives & performance

5. Establish core product support Job Site services, specialised services evaluation & changing conditions.

6. Enhance Job Site performance metrics, including key product support performance indicators, techniques & reporting

7. Provide framework for evaluating the Job Site costs/ benefits of expanded product support services to existing or new troop units

8. Conduct Job Site space requirements assessment, addressing barriers to efficient product support operations.

9. Optimise Job Site operations, including product support policies, procedures & performance requirements for on-hand stock parts/tools

10. Evaluate Job Site product support work order rate-setting systems and recommend adjustments to rate setting & replacement planning

Top 10 Questions Building Out-of-Standard Indicator Narratives for Aircraft Repair Assign

1. What are the common/multiple write-ups for major contributing systems or different systems trends?

2. Is Mission Capable Supply/Mission Impaired Capability Awaiting Parts condition information available on aircraft with high supply times?

3. Are there technical information limitations or lack of proper tools or could parts reuse/transfer been a factor?

4. Do pilot reported discrepancy appearance indicate recent corrective trend in system write-ups for major system contributors?

5. How are shops contacts initiated for repeat/recurs checks made in effort to identify component failures?

6. Have maintenance procedural, training, or skill-level problems been identified?

7. How are quality assurance summaries and deferred discrepancy lists reviewed for positive and negative trends identify problem aircraft or systems?

8. Do Aircraft scheduling deviations for negative maintenance practices and trends impact work
force and workload stability?

9. How is maintenance portion of the base/intermediate repair enhancement programme monitored/evaluated?

10. How to determine performance of selected systems, subsystems, and line-replaceable units to isolate source of problems affecting the mission?

Customer Survey is a good way of having product support. Customer survey allows the company to be able to find out what are the improvements they can do in order to make their product more appealing to the customers. Customers support companies when they know that their suggestion is being taken into consideration. Customer survey will help the company to know what areas they need to work on in order to come up with the best product. It also enables the company to have a direct communication with the customers and later on build a good relationship with them.
