The purpose of this MBA project is to explore the feasibility of pre-positioning common aviation support equipment onboard aircraft carriers. When called upon to conduct shipboard operations, carrier-based squadrons are currently required to transport their common support equipment between their home station and their assigned aircraft carrier via commercially contracted trucks. The determination of pre-positioning was made by conducting a cost-benefit analysis of purchasing additional support equipment versus the continuation of paying for contracted trucking. Additionally, the project investigates how the transportation funding program could be executed differently to better track funds and to reduce current, questionable and unchallengeable charges. The project shows how proper scheduling of trucks for a carrier offload can prevent detention charges and assist in extending the taxpayer dollars from being used for non-value-added activities.
