Abstract : The Air Force Medical Support Agency, Surgeon General Support Logistics Office requested that the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC) conduct a proof of concept study to assess the validity and feasibility of using a medical modeling tool developed by NHRC in U.S. Air Force Allowance Standard (AS) development and management. The Air Force Critical Care Air Transport Team (CCATT) Unit Type Code AS was selected for this study with the goal of developing an inventory validation process using the databases in the NHRC Modeling and Simulation laboratory. The primary objective of this study was to provide the Air Force with the ability to validate the clinical requirements of the CCATT assemblage by using the NHRC Estimating Supplies Program to establish a viable audit trail linking clinical requirements with supply items.
