    Moderator: Mr. Jeff Nusser, SAF/AQRE (Deputy AF CCPE)

     

    Target Audience:  All members of the Air Force Corrosion Enterprise

     

    Abstract: This session will provide a snapshot of the updated (2017) AF Corrosion Strategic Plan. Topics will include a view of the organizations that constitute the AF Corrosion Enterprise, corrosion-specific goals and objectives, and introductions to three corrosion coordinating bodies; the Executive Group, Operational Working Group, and Technical Working Group.  The session will also include open discussion of metrics as a precursor to the “Using Maintenance Data…” session.

  • Using Maintenance Data to Answer the Question:  Are We Winning?

    Time: Days 1 & 2 (6 & 7 June); 14:45-16:15

     

    Moderator: Mr. Eric Herzberg, Logistics Management Institute (LMI)

     

    Target Audience: System Managers charged with monitoring, reporting or improving system cost and availability metrics

     

    Abstract: This session will be a guided community discussion regarding the maintenance and availability data warehouse (MADW), how machine learning is used to solve the Work Unit Code and Action Taken code dilemma, and discuss the predictive capability being developed from the data.  The MADW is a data warehouse with over 600 million maintenance records and more than 30 data fields in each record, many of which do not exist in current Air Force systems.  Outputs from the MADW are available to the Air Force to conduct analyses.

    Abstract: This session will summarize significant changes in corrosion-related legislation, DoD policy, other guidance, and military and commercial specifications and standards published since the last Air Force corrosion conference.  Also, oversight of acquisition programs from a corrosion prevention and control perspective will be discussed.  This session may contain some (limited) duplication with the Weapon System and Wing Corrosion Manager training sessions on day 3.

     

  • DoD Corrosion Policy, Oversight & Processes

    Time: Days 1 & 2 (6 & 7 June); 14:45-16:15

     

    Moderator: Mr. Rich Hays, Deputy Director, OSD Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office

     

    Target Audience: All members of the Air Force Corrosion Enterprise

     

    Abstract: This session will provide insight into the OSD corrosion strategic plan and program, and conduct of the DoD Corrosion Prevention and Control IPT.  It will also provide familiarity with and corrosion programs being led by the Military Department Corrosion Control and Prevention Executives.  The process for submission and selection of OSD CPO Technology Demonstration/Implementation Projects will be discussed and some successful projects will be briefly presented.

TRACK 3 "GUIDANCE"

  • Effective CPCP and CPABs

    Time: Days 1 & 2 (6 & 7 June); 13:00-14:30

     

    Moderator: Mr. Terry Gabbert, AF Corrosion Prevention & Control Office

     

    Target Audience: All members of the Air Force Corrosion Enterprise

     

    Abstract: This session will refresh the AF corrosion community understanding of the fundamentals of corrosion prevention and control planning.  It will provide insights in to effectively using Corrosion Prevention and Control Plans (CPCP) and help participants prepare for, conduct, and participate in effective Corrosion Prevention Advisory Boards (CPAB). Significantly, the session will detail how to most effectively use the newly-implemented AF CPCP template.  This session is tailored to personnel not attending the three-hour Weapon System and Wing Corrosion Manager training sessions on day 3.  However, Weapon System and Wing Corrosion Managers will benefit as well.

  • AF System Corrosion Engineering, Management Tools, and Insights

    Time: Days 1 & 2 (6 & 7 June); 14:45-16:15
