The article presents a study that examines the total not mission capable maintenance (TNMCM) rates for the C-5 fleet in the U.S. The study shows that the process for establishing and calculating Air Force-level TNMCM standards is not familiar across the Air Force and not equally used across the total force. Moreover, the process in use does not develop realistic, capability-based metrics to drive supportable operational decisions.
