  • Unfilled orders
  • Preventing cancelled contracts
  • Military aviation requirements present unique challenges
sustainment horizon
Sustainment Horizon
  • Problem: The Perfect Storm
    • Small quantity orders
    • Short lead times
    • Infrequent buys
    • Labor intensive RFQ System
    • No tooling
  • Objective:
    • A more innovative approach
    • Responsive to industry concerns
    • Utilization of industry expertise
    • Sharing of knowledge

Weapons Systems Sustainment
  • Castings and forgings represent about 4% of DLA solicitations but 15-20% of backorders over 180 days
  • Forgings/castings is hindered by
    • Lost tooling
    • Fragmented supply chains
    • Diminishing supply base
    • Inadequate procurement data
    • Hog it out?
first article testing fat
First Article Testing (FAT)
  • FAT Impact
    • Effects of draft on part dimensions
    • Sharing lessons-learned
    • FAT punch list examples
fat submission punch list
FAT Submission Punch List
  • Material certification sheets (chemical analysis/mechanical/physical properties with traceability to mill)
  • All other certifications: including finish requirements (i.e. plating, heat treatment, welding, inspecting, anodize, painting, NDI, etc.) utilized in the manufacture of the FAT item(s).
  • Traceability certifications of all purchased hardware and components used in an assembly
  • A copy of the purchase order certifying the process accomplished at other than contractor facility shall also be included.
  • Process Operation documentation
  • Traveler Documents with quality stamps
  • In-process inspections performed with inspection data included
  • Sub-vendor certifications (welding, heat treat, NDT, Plating) *Proof of ISO or equivalent certification
  • Quality Manual (ISO 9000 or equivalent)

  • Equipment Calibration Dates
  • If not specified on the drawing, the datum point selected for all measurements
  • Notes regarding drawing draft allowances against nominal dimensions
  • Actual Measurement data and drawing tolerances
  • Any special processing notes to be considered (bar code label versus laser etching due to part geometry)
  • Basic Contract Copy (very important that it be included in the documentation package)
  • Any Contract Modifications (if applicable)
  • Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) Receiving Report with "Inspected" Endorsement by DCMA (Origin Inspection)
  • Contract CLIN 9906 FAT WAWF or DD-250, Inspected by DCMA QAR
  • Documentation of domestic materials, particularly for inserts and fasteners.
  • Documentation of Approved bearing and required stake tools
