dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this MBA project is to evaluate and assess the inventory management database at the Commander, Naval Surface Forces (CNSF) Real-time Reutilization Asset Management (R-RAM) San Diego warehouse. CNSF spends approximately $4 million annually for contractor support to operate the R-RAM warehouses for the Atlantic and Pacific Surface Fleets, and in return receives cost-avoidance for spares issued from the warehouses. The warehouses contain A-condition spare parts that were offloaded from decommissioned ships, as well as excess inventory from afloat units. Spare parts in the R-RAM warehouses were procured either by using initial outfitting allowance or by Operations and Maintenance (O and M) funds. The spare part is issued free to the requesting ship. The R-RAM inventory is visible to customers through the Global Distance Support Center and various databases. The goals of this study of the R-RAM inventory management database are to determine ways to increase throughput while simultaneously reducing inventory and operating expense, reduce inventory footprint by identifying "dead" stock and obsolete spares, recommend a stocking policy, and develop recommendations for current and future operations.en_US
