The government-industry team, which included members of the USAF 429th and 417th Supply Chain Management Squadrons (SCMS), worked together to implement an F-16 and C-130 PBL wheel and brake program that resulted in significant USAF cost savings, while maintaining 100 percent warfighter support. Collins Aerospace is a unit of Raytheon Technologies Corp. (NYSE: RTX).
By utilizing commercial best practices, the team developed an innovative process replacing traditional transactional spares contracting with a performance-based approach that resulted in a number of improvements, including:
“Collins Aerospace is committed to supporting the warfighter as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible,” said Ajay Mahajan, vice president, Landing Systems for Collins Aerospace. “By implementing a performance-based contracting mechanism with carbon reutilization technologies from our commercial business, we were able to partner together with the USAF and DLA to implement time-based product support solutions.
