Case Study: US Air Force C-17 Cost Allocation Support

August 12

US Air Force C-17 Cost Allocation Support

C-17 Maintenance Bill Allocation Modeling and SME Support

CHALLENGE:

  • C-17 required a single accurate, defendable and simple tool to capture C-17 support costs and allocate the $1.8+ Billion/year bill among 14 partners/stakeholders
  • Previously tracked across 60+ complex/rigid Excel worksheets – significant pushback from FMS customers on “how allocation worked” and reliability of answers

SOLUTION:

  • Completed rapid assessment of tools available to combine 60+ models into one tool
  • Assisted government in identifying long term allocation and reporting goals
  • Due to absence of appropriate allocation software, developed a non-proprietary, MS Access based relational model with multiple allocation engines built-in

CLIENT RESULTS:

  • Gained credibility & dependability for multi-billion $ allocation among 14 partners
  • Gained first ever reporting capability to provide partners with full visibility into their results and methods behind allocation
  • Cut response time for what-if drills by seven fold & quarterly updates in half
  • Avoided millions of dollars in allocation errors due to FAIRSHARE’s accuracy, self checking reporting and single data change interfaces
