12/30/2006 - RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany (AFPN) -- Airmen everywhere are coming up with new ideas to improve their work areas as part of the Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century program. The Airmen with the 435th Logistics Readiness Squadron here are no different.
When Senior Airman Yan Voskanov first came to the squadron, he noticed right away that there was room for improvement. He was not alone; squadron Airmen pooled together recently to take a hard look at their operations. They found nearly 180 processes that can be improved to make the squadron run better.
Squadron leaders and the Airmen found several ways to improve their vehicle maintenance operations, including making changes to the compound's layout and reducing administrative steps, which consume half of their maintenance process time.
