Tinker Air Force Base

Continuous process improvement is alive and well at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center at Tinker Air Force Base. For proof, look no further than the 76th Maintenance Wing’s new F100 Business Unit being stood up in Bldg. 3001 as part of the landmark $500 million, 10-year process of transforming maintenance, repair and overhaul operations currently under way across the center. The center is showing steady progress with redesign efforts of building a lean work environment designed to produce world-class products on time and cost. As the F100 Business Unit continues to prepare for additional cell moves, one of the biggest reasons for the team’s marked success to this point has been taking lessons learned from previous lean initiatives and incorporating those into the new designs. Facilitating this transformation is a consortium lead by Battelle.
