The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) issued a Program Budget Decision (PBD) requesting a study of supply material availability (SMA) and related issues for Naval Aviation Depots (NADEPs). PBD-405 shows a disparity between percentage levels of supply support for the NADEPs and the current overall fill rates published by the Navy Inventory Control Point-Philadelphia (NAVICP-P) and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). This thesis evaluates the effectiveness of SMA and determines if SMA is a valuable measurement tool for NADEPs, determines if supply support has an impact on production, and determines if NADEPs are receiving poor supply support. This thesis evaluates the Air Force and United Airline Services (UAS) depot support to determine any common trends or ways to improve NADEP support. After conducting procedure and policy reviews, interviews and site visits to NADEP North Island, ALC Hill, UAS San Francisco and Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR), this research concludes that SMA, in its current formulation, is not effective as a measurement tool to indicate supply effectiveness in terms of operational readiness. Also, this research has determined that there is a major link between poor material support and production cycle time. The study recommends the government review post production support plans, pursue standardization, review contract specialist and item manager staffing, and identify and analyze readiness measurement tools
