Korea’s DAPA Awards Boeing with Military PBL contracts

Our Bureau - : Feb 16, 2022 - : 4:20 am

The Republic of Korea’s Defence Acquisition Programme Administration (DAPA) has awarded three performance-based logistics (PBL) contracts to Boeing for sustainment of Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) F-15K fighter jets and Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft, and Republic of Korea Army (ROKA) CH-47 Chinook helicopters. The five-year contracts will improve aircraft availability by using performance data to inform logistics and supply chain management activities. 

Thom Breckenridge, senior director of Far East Programmes for Boeing International Government & Defence said, Boeing’s partnership with Korea is shifting from transactional support approaches to customized models driven by agreed-to readiness outcomes. “These agreements enhance the value of PBL contracts that have delivered high mission-capable rates and improved parts forecasting and procurement of the ROKAF’s F-15K fleet for more than a decade and will extend benefits to the AEW&C and CH-47 fleets as well.”

In partnership with local, Boeing will execute the contacts using its proven integrated logistics model to coordinate supply chain forecasting, procurement, delivery, maintenance training and risk-management practices in support of ROKAF and ROKA objectives.

Boeing also states that the PBL model will improve the ability to adapt logistics quickly and cost effectively to support emergent issues and unanticipated events. In addition to executing the PBLs, Boeing will examine how data analytics can further improve the effectiveness of its PBL approach. “Through the data they generate, these platforms are already telling us how to extend the life of parts and components, when to defer or elevate maintenance activities and how to focus training on actions that are most imminent,” said Torbjorn Sjogren, vice president and general manager for Boeing International Government & Defence. “Applying data analytics to these PBLs is a very practical yet powerful way to maximize our customer’s investment and support successful military operations in a critical region.”
