DynCorp International is featured in an article in the October 2012 issue of Military Logistics Forum. The article addresses the challenges associated with streamlining maintenance logistics and offers perspectives and best practices from defense industry professionals.
Kenneth Juergens, DynCorp International group vice president, Global Logistics and Development Solutions, describes DI’s methodologies in maintenance logistics.
“We use a variety of different maintenance methodologies in our work with the U.S. military,” said Kenneth Juergens, a group vice president at DynCorp International. “We often use high-velocity maintenance for scheduled services. For unscheduled maintenance, we often use predictive models including conditioned based maintenance. Sometimes we are able to take an approach that blends more than one maintenance methodology.”
In the article, high-velocity maintenance is described as a methodology “usually associated with depot-level overhauls of equipment, in which the condition of the equipment is known before it reaches the depot and the maintenance to be performed involves routine, repeatable steps at which the maintainers are highly skilled.”
