The purpose of this project is to assess how Depot Level Repairables (DLRs) are currently tracked from a not ready for issue material status (i.e., unserviceable) to a ready for issue material status. The Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP) conducts more than 380,000 repair actions annually to keep sufficient repair parts available or ready for issue to the fleet upon demand. These repair actions have totaled|3.08B in shipping and redistribution costs of Not Ready for Issue (NRFI) materiel. Concentrating on handling processes of Advanced Traceability and Control (ATAC), this project will look at various aspects of DLR management and current policies. Additionally we will compare and contrast commercial reverse logistics issues with those of the Navy's retrograde system. The project will draw a flowchart of the DLR handling process at its most elementary levels to help the reader more clearly see how changes in the operational environment affect the overall material inventory levels and more importantly operational readiness. Finally, the project will weigh some options to reduce inventory levels by reducing overall turn-around-time, which may also reduce overall DLR processing costs.
