Information : Acquisition Logistics Support Plan
In the past, Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWC), Lakehurst manually typed, copied, and processed its Acquisition Logistics Support Plans (ALSPs), which added time and cost to the finished product. Each plan was arranged in a paragraph format, followed military specification instructions, and included volumes of redundant information. Searching these documents for particulars was very time consuming, and required extra reading and research by the user.
Wanting to reduce development costs and improve the readability of these documents, NAWC, Lakehurst turned to its in-house experts, and developed a PC-based ALSP program using Microsoft Access. This user-friendly program operates with drop down menus, and eliminates the need for extensive computer training. In addition, the program covers all possible support scenarios for developing a comprehensive plan, and enables the plans to be produced with consistent quality. Taking advantage of computer-generated plans, the ALSP program generates only relevant information in an easily understood format and language.
The ALSP program produces easy-to-read, fact only documents which cover all ALSP requirements. Since implementing this program, NAWC, Lakehurst reduced the development time by 60%, and improved the product quality by 50%.
