The Military Services can reduce peacetime maintenance personnel costs by millions by improving its systems to determine peacetime and wartime requirements and by planning greater use of reserve personnel to meet certain wartime maintenance workloads.
The opportunity to reduce these costs exists because the services can correct weaknesses in their systems. These weaknesses cause overstated requirements and usually attempt to staff peacetime below-depot maintenance organizations with sufficient active duty personnel to meet wartime mobilization needs.
