Morgan Business Consulting (MBC) – Headquarters, Air Force A4/7 Transformation Support Services

  • Information System Development, Information Assurance, and Information Technology Support (3.12)

  • Analytical and Organization Assessment Support (3.21.2)

Morgan Business Consulting (MBC) is assisting the creation of a future state for the Air Force repair network, in which centralized management, improved communication, standardization of processes and network optimization, are done in accordance with eLog21 initiatives.  Since Repair Network Management (RNM) is a key tenet of eLog21, this future state must also serve as a transition point from where the Air Force is currently to where the Air Force will be when the Expeditionary Combat Support System (ECSS) is fully implemented.  MBC’s deep commercial experience combined with extensive experience with AF logistics, in particular ECSS, gives MBC unique insight into the methods and approaches that most effectively apply commercial and AF-specific functional experience with implementation experience in Air Force logistics.  Having recently completed ECSS blueprinting, MBC is currently assessing, via Contractor Support Integration (CSI), how contractor supported logistics systems are currently aligned to the future state logistics enterprise as defined by the Air Force’s Logistics Enterprise Architecture (LogEA) .

Program Support (3.20)
Analytical and Organization Assessment Support (3.21.2)

A key element of the Air Force logistics transformation is the establishment of an Air Force Vehicles and Equipment Support Activity (AFVESA).  As the Command and Control hub for the Air Force Supply Chain Management for Class VII (Vehicles, Major End Items; excluding engines and pods) and WRM/BEAR, AFVESA partners with the Air Force Global Logistics Support Center (AFGLSC) to gain full visibility, enhanced accountability, and control of these critical assets.  By achieving full visibility and garnering an enterprise wide perspective, AFVESA will redirect maintenance, materiel, and distribution support to where it is needed most.  MBC’s AFVESA transformation includes reallocating stocks between all Air Force storage locations (depot, base, or Centralized Intermediate Repair Facility (CIRF)), redirecting the source, direction or speed of re-supply, and changing the priority of maintenance actions to meet changing warfighter requirements.  The ability to make and implement instantaneous changes to the enterprise logistics plan will make AFVESA essential to the Air Force support provided to Combatant Commands (COCOMs).
