ALAE Solutions has been selected for AF182-016 Phase I SBIR Award

ALAE Solutions is pleased to announce we have been selected for a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) award for the AF182-016 topic. The prime contract award requires ALAE Solutions to develop an intelligent decision support tool which optimizes the total life-cycle repair costs and repair time for supply chain management (SCM) assets at the shop replaceable unit (SRU) and/or circuit card assembly (CCA) level. This innovation is required because current United States Air Force (USAF) Supply Chain Management (SCM) processes are based upon demand for repairable parts, such as Shop Replaceable Units (SRU), and not on Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of these assets. A system is needed which can holistically analyze the repair history and maintenance support cost at the SRU and/or CCA level to optimize total life-cycle repair costs and repair time for a given asset. Under Phase I, ALAE Solutions will conceptualize and design a decision support tool capable of identifying specific SCM assets at the SRU and/or CCA level with a history of excessive life cycle repair costs.
