Stock in-Transit, specifically Stock in-Transit that goes to a Non-TIRing activity remains a major problem within the Navy. The Navy continues to "write-off" billions of dollars due to stock in-transit losses each year and consistently loses track of valuable repair items. This thesis looks at the effects that Stock in-Transit has on the Navy, in not only the repair pipeline, but overall readiness as well. Currently, two programs are in place that could solve this non-TIRing problem, Commercial Asset Visibility (CAV) and a Proxy TIR Group. We look at the cost associated of implementing one or both of the two solutions and the benefits they would bring.
