AFSO 21: Innovations for T-38 Maintenance

Robert Wade, 47th Maintenance Directorate chief of data management and Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century program facilitator, explains the team’s wall diagram detailing the current status of T-38 maintenance procedures to Col. Tom Murphy, 47th Flying Training Wing commander during an AFSO 21 meeting at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas, Feb. 6, 2013. AFSO 21 is a multi-step continuous process improvement system developed to review the processes used by organizations for waste and unproductive procedures. The tool was used to review how the T-38 is maintained at Laughlin from start to finish with new inspection guidelines added that risked impacting Laughlin’s mission of training world class pilots.
