The US Department of Defense has directed that all of its logistics activities of maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) be transformed in conformity with commercially proven practices and strategies. In this book, Mathaisel (Babson College) describes a "lean enterprise architecture" for transforming military MRO (also called sustainment) strategies. His proposed Lean Sustainment Enterprise Model calls for the consolidation and integration of in-service engineering, integrated logistic support, intermediate/depot maintenance, operational support, and supply support and is organized around three primary sustainment structures, operation sustainment, sustainment engineering, and MRO operations. After describing the overall enterprise architecture, he discusses continuous process improvement initiatives, best sustainment practices, and transformation implementation. The CD-ROM contains documents and tools useful for the transformation process. Distributed in the US by Taylor & Francis.
