CSC2 IN THE CENTRALIZED INTERMEDIATE REPAIR
The centralized intermediate repair facility (CIRF) test, which was ongoing during Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), demonstrated the essential elements of the combat support execution planning and control (CSC2) closed-loop control system. It showed the practicality and benefits of using such a system in contingency operations. Figure B.1 describes the basic features of the closed-loop process used during the CIRF test and described in the CSC2 operational architecture (Appendix A).
The process begins, as shown on the left side of the figure, with the development of an integrated operational and combat support plan. This plan specifies the operational measures of effectiveness (MOEs) to be achieved through combat support activities—for example, F-15 weapons system availability objectives. Performance control parameters based on these operational MOEs are defined for combat support processes to create the desired operational MOE—for example, maintenance repair times, transportation times. The jointly developed plan is then assessed to determine its feasibility according to availabilities of combat support resources. If the plan is infeasible, operational and/or combat support portions of the plan are identified for replanning, as shown by the closed-loop1 planning portion of the process on the left side of the figure.____________________
