MCCLELLAN AIR FORCE BASE EXHIBIT No. 7

VOLUME OF BUSINESS 1. The trend in the total items processed, although displaying a certain instability, has tended downward from a high of 263,393 items processed in May 1953. Since that time a trend has generated upward to the October production level of 221,333 items. This trend must be considered in the light of two additional factors during the same period :

(a) The number of personnel assigned, and

(b) New business received. 2. The number of personnel declined from the high of 2,829 established in August 1952 to the May 1953 level of 2,425 and, subsequently, rose to 2,491 in October. Similarly, the average number of line items received per day decreased from the July 1952 average of 10,822 to 8,777 in May 1953 and rose to an average of 9,046 items in October.

3. There has been, moreover, a constant increase in work efficiency since February 1953 at which time 2.06 man-hours were expended for each line item processed (requisitions shipped and receiving documents processed). During October 1953, 1.69 man-hours were expended per line item processed-a processing rate unmatched during the 16-month period under consideration.

4. The percent of the total production categorized by prime, zonal, and base support responsibility is as follows:

Population of supply—you were asking about trends awhile ago. In 1951 we had 1,960 people in the supply directorate. In August 1952 we reached a peak of 2,829. This was just following the decentralization from AMC; the port air materiel offices, San Francisco and Seattle, were added during this period causing the buildup to this strength. Since that time, a little over a year ago, we have reduced slightly over 300 people which is the result of increased efficiency. You will see from the workload we have not dropped any in the overall workload but rather have been able to achieve this through mechanization, work-measurement programs, and other management improvements.

Mr. BALWAN. Has your mission changed at all since August 1952! Colonel RAMME. There would be very minor changes in responsibilities but not in mission. We were assigned, for instance, additional aircraft in prime class 01-M, which is North American aircraft. We are currently taking over four additional aircraft in this class which we did not have prior to this. That will happen early in December. We get that kind of change all the time but no major change in mission.

Our turnover rate, 2.9; sick absence rate, 2.4; the average for AMC is 2.5.

Getting into the workload, which is best measured by the number of items we process, the number of tons we handle—I have put on this chart, the number of items processed from January through September. The average is about 220,000 items per month. These items are received and shipped from the AF account. The figure for October is 250,521. We have jumped up here in October. The tonnage was an average of about 35,000 tons per month and as you will notice, the items per man-hour processed which shows an improvement in efficiency from 0.576 to 0.637 in September and for October, 0.672. It is a definite improvement in the items per man-hour, and the same is true but not quite as great in volume in the tons handled per manhour.

The distribution of that workload, taking the overall as 100 percent-we have broken it down into how much of the workload is príme, zonal, and base. You will note that in the prime classes at the beginning of this year the prime workload represented 11 percent of our total. It now represents 22 percent of our total. This is the area in which the workload is increasing and in the main is the result of decentralization. The zonal workload has remained constant at 28 percent. The base has dropped from 61 percent to 50 percent which compensates for the change represented by an increase in the prime workload.

In regard to the overseas monitoring workload-we have projected the monthly workload on these charts: This workload is in addition to the other workload figures which I showed you. We have an average of about 210,000 per month, relatively constant. We also monitor requests for the mutual defense assistance countries in the same way as for the oversea AF activities. That workload is in addition to the AF, and averages about 22,000 per month. These figures are in the brochure.

On this chart we indicate the number of line items stocked here at SMAMA; 336,148 line items, representing 187 property classes. We
