Supply ravitaillement




  • Describe warehouse planning and management

  • Describe first in, first out (FIFO) procedures

  • Describe tail number bins

  • Describe bench stock

  • Describe the Due-in From Maintenance (DIFM) process

Warehouse planning management

Warehouse Planning & Management

  • Storage Policy

    • Store by commodity

    • After receipt processing, property moved for delivery or to storage

    • Two types of storage facilities

      • Covered and open storage

Warehouse planning management1

Warehouse Planning & Management

  • Covered - storage space within a roofed structure; best protection against adverse weather conditions

    • General purpose, refrigerated, flammable/hazardous material warehouses, sheds

  • Open Storage - uncovered space used for storage purposes; designed for storing items that do not require protection from the weather

    • Improved

    • Unimproved

Warehouse planning management2

Warehouse Planning & Management

  • Warehouse Layout - storage space = basic resource

    • Aisle positioning

    • Working/non-storage areas

    • Allowable floor loads

    • Sprinkler systems

    • Size of the warehouse

    • Number of stockrooms

    • Number of bins or pallets that will hold the property

    • Number and size of warehouse doors

    • Location of lights, lighting circuits, and switches

Warehouse planning management3

Warehouse Planning & Management

  • Storage Areas

    • Space must be used wisely

    • Must be planned before start of storage operation

    • All stored material must face an aisle

    • Similar handling requirements stored together

    • Consider activity or popularity of items during layout planning

    • Some items require special consideration (hazardous, pilferable, perishable, etc.)

Warehouse planning management4

Warehouse Planning & Management

  • Special Storage, Handling & Inspection Requirements

    • Controlled items

    • Functional check prior to issue

    • Hazardous commodities

    • Assets pending modification

    • Warranty/guaranty items

    • Shelf-life control

Warehouse planning management5

Warehouse Planning & Management

  • Shelf-Life Coded Items – item of supply that has deteriorative characteristics

    • Type I – items with a definite non-extendable shelf-life

    • Type II – items with a shelf-life that may be extended after an inspection or a test

  • Hazardous Materials

    • Hazardous materials management – characteristics that require specialty storage or handling to prevent risk to personnel or the facility

    • Stored according to compatibility

Warehouse planning management6

Warehouse Planning & Management

  • Four types of hazardous items:

    • Corrosives storage

    • Flammable storage

    • Cylinder storage

    • Low Hazard Materials storage

Warehouse planning management7

Warehouse Planning & Management

  • Primary locations for serviceable items

    • Bin labels

    • Bar-coded labels to aid in inventory

    • Inventory counts

  • Maximum Use of Stock

    • First In, First Out

Fifo shelf life

FIFO & Shelf-Life

  • FIFO

    • When issuing property, select the items with the closest use by date first. If materiel does not have a use by date, then select the items with the oldest date stamped on the package

Tail number bins

Tail Number Bins

  • Set up by tail number, serial number, or identification number

  • Must not be released without documentation

  • Items not installed that duty day must be returned

  • Maintain security and control of assets

Supply ravitaillement


  • National Stock Number

    • Identifies a specific item

    • Only number supply computer system recognizes

    • Standardizes ordering system

    • Used by all federal agencies

Supply ravitaillement


  • Interchangeable items

    • Items that can be exchanged one for another, issued automatically if master NSN is not available

  • Substitute items

    • Items that can be exchanged under certain conditions, must get approval first

Bench stock

Bench Stock

  • Low cost, high demand consumable items

    • Historical data to recommend what items are needed and what quantity

    • Stored in maintenance work area/ready access

    • Reduced work load for logistics support

      • Items ordered in bulk

  • Disadvantages

    • Purchased at time of replenishment

    • Storage space

    • Coordinating inventory with LRS

    • Stocks no longer visible in supply systems

Bench stock1

Bench Stock

  • Examples of bench stock items:

    • Nuts

    • Bolts

    • Cotter keys

    • Washers

    • Resistors

    • Capacitors

    • Light bulbs

    • Sealants

    • Batteries

Due in from maintenance

Due-in From Maintenance

  • Depot level reparable items

    • Must be turned in for repair/credit

      • Line Replaceable Unit

      • Shop Replaceable Unit

      • Not Repairable This Station
