One-third of the US Navy’s destroyers, cruisers, and amphibious ships are under significant repair. Maintenance issues have grounded two-thirds of the US Navy’s strike fighters. The military will use a new, computer-based database to manage logistics, maintenance and the supply chain of its new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. But there have been numerous problems bringing the system online.
The US military believes that coordinating the backlog and schedule for suppliers and contractors could reduce the time vehicles are unavailable by 25%. This would reduce the unavailable ships from one-third to one-quarter.
