A Review of Progress in the Areas of Aeronautical and Aerospace Spares Management 640614
A review of the progress in the aeronautical and aerospace spares management which has occurred roughly from the mid 1940's through 1963. Areas covered include Commercial Airline, Army, Navy, Air Force and NASA. It includes some of the past history of spares management and improvements gained. The paper covers, in each of the above areas, the range of spares management from provisioning, ordering, inventory control and distribution through packaging and handling.
Progress has been considerable over the past 20 years, and it is anticipated that more efficient spares management is imminent as refinements and improvements are continued.
