DEPOT MAINTENANCE CAPACITY AND UTILIZATION MEASUREMENT HANDBOOK
|Publication Date:||31 August 2018|
PURPOSE AND APPLICATION
C1.1.1. Reissuance and Purpose. This Handbook provides updated guidance for measurement of the capacity and utilization of DoD organic activities that perform depot-level maintenance of military materiel.
C1.1.2. Applicability. This Handbook is to be used by all activities and organizations of the DoD Components responsible for the determination and reporting of capacity and utilization information for organic activities that perform depot maintenance. The techniques in this Handbook are applicable to:
C18.104.22.168. Depot-level maintenance performed in covered and uncovered spaces located at, or within, facilities which constitute an enduring plant capacity. The commander who exercises operational control over such spaces will report the capacity and utilization for them.
C22.214.171.124. Depot-level maintenance accomplished by personnel deploying, or detached, from a depot maintenance activity to an off-site installation (e.g., depot field teams, field-site detachments). Capacity for depot field teams, etc., will be reported by the applicable commander of the field team personnel rather than the commander of the host location.
Scope and Responsibilities
C126.96.36.199. In addition to prescribing calculation methodologies, this Handbook further establishes and outlines reporting criteria for the DoD Components. Such reporting is prescribed to monitor and support the establishment and retention of essential depot maintenance capability as outlined in DoD Directive 4151.18 (Reference (b)).
C188.8.131.52. Organic depot maintenance activities and physical capacities established or retained within the DoD Components are to be kept to the minimum necessary to ensure a ready, controlled source of technical competence and resources to meet military requirements of Reference (b). These activities, then, are to remain in place to provide logistical support for war, emergency, and contingency actions, and are to operate in peacetime in a cost-effective manner.
C184.108.40.206. DoD Components will establish and document the specific qualifications for personnel who will be assigned responsibility for measuring depot maintenance capacity and utilization. Commanders of organizations or activities responsible for measuring depot maintenance capacity and utilization will ensure that only qualified personnel are assigned to perform such duties.
