Presently, aircraft carriers on deployment request Fleet Issue Load List (FILL) material from supporting AFS ships on a "Fill or Kill" basis. If the material is available on the AFS, it is issued and delivered to the aircraft carrier during the next underway replenishment (UNREP) . If the requested material is not-in-stock (NIS) the requisition is cancelled by the AFS. The aircraft carrier is notified of requisition cancellations during the underway replenishment. The aircraft carrier then cancels the outstanding requisition on its own inventory system, and reorders the material at the next scheduled underway replenishment or from an appropriate Naval Supply Center. This thesis suggests a procedure for an AFS to automatically forward cancelled aircraft carrier requisitions for Fleet Issue Load List material to a Navy Supply Center. During the study information was obtained from several on-site visits to an AFS and an in-depth review of current guidelines and procedures for AFS supply support and aircraft carrier requisitioning procedures. The procedure developed provides the AFS with a method for passing aircraft carrier requisitions for not-in-stock Fleet Issue Load List material, reducing requisition lead-time and aircraft carrier administrative work-load. Additional research is required to evaluate specific implementation problems and actual cost savings.
