Complex closes out productive year with 217 aircraft serviced

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. (AFNS) -- It's been a productive year at the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex, more so than at any other time in the last five years, officials said.

A total of 217 aircraft -- including C-5 Galaxy, C-17 Globemaster III, C-130 Hercules and F-15 Eagle models -- were serviced in fiscal year 2015, which ended Sept. 30. That number includes 15 unscheduled depot-level maintenance aircraft, with two C-5s, three C-17s and 10 C-130s.

In the 402nd Commodities Maintenance Group, commodity lines maintained 34,772 parts in fiscal 2015, over 600-plus additional units than planned.

The 402nd Electronics Maintenance Group repaired another 84,600 units. That was over 4,097 more assets than had been planned at the beginning of the year. The 402nd Software Maintenance Group completed 326 projects, nearly 80 more than originally planned as well.

And the 402nd Maintenance Support Group kept the production plant healthy by conducting 19,975 preventive maintenance actions and driving $47 million in improvements.

The ongoing commitment of a skilled work force of maintenance professionals and management teams contributed to the success of last fiscal year's numbers, ensuring that dedication will carry forward into 2016 and beyond.

"There was a lot of remarkable work across the board," said Brig. Gen. Walter Lindsley, the WR-ALC commander. "This was accomplished through process improvements, teamwork, communication, synchronization and integration, focus and guts and commitment from our work force. It's a great story."

The 561st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron maintained 73 F-15s. Since January 2014, when the squadron began to implement new process discipline, there have been significant gains. The squadron began fiscal 2015 with a zero due date performance. They finished the fiscal year at 35.6 percent DDP and rising.

Overall, there were five C-5s maintained in fiscal 2015 -- marking the fourth consecutive year the 559th AMXS has achieved 100 percent on-time DDP. That's no small feat when each aircraft spends about 265 days at Robins for programmed depot maintenance.

In the 562nd AMXS, there were 68 C-17s serviced in fiscal 2015. That amounts to an 85 percent due date performance, which was nearly a 10 percent increase over the previous fiscal year. That squadron posted significant gains since last spring, getting out nearly 48 jets on time or early back to the customer.

There were 56 C-130s maintained in 2015 by the 560th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. That total was achieved despite a deficit of 11 aircraft in the first quarter that were recovered, in addition to the squadron keeping up with the remaining year's production schedule. The squadron experienced an increase throughout the year with its DDP, and posted 39 percent for fiscal 2015.

Note that on the overall WR-ALC production total, the complex was slated to produce 219 aircraft in fiscal 2015, but in the last few days of the year two C-130s were not produced. That, however, was due to weather and flight concerns during the last production phase, according to officials.

With this being the most productive year Robins has experienced lately, Lindsley pointed out that it was accomplished with 1,000 less workers in the "direct work force." He described the complex workforce as an organization of professionals committed to each other and the mission.

At the end of the day, when all is said and done, the “art of the possible” vision at Robins has been defined -- to be the "best on the planet" at what we do.

And achieving a successful level of performance comes from a commitment from every mission partner on base, as well as the support of families, businesses and organizations across the surrounding Middle Georgia communities, all of which directly contribute to that vision, Lindsley said.

"I don't believe we've achieved the best we can achieve. Not even close," he said. "We have a lot of opportunities to do great things this coming year. We have the team to do it if we stick together and communicate and execute at a high level. I'm putting my money on this team."
