Pratt & Whitney has formed a public-private partnership with the USAF Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center under the authority of 10 USC 2474, Centers of Industrial Technical Excellence. The partnering agreement establishes the cooperation and mutual support necessary to implement direct sales, work share or lease agreements for workload targeted for 50/50 compliance. The most recent version of the agreement with OC-ALC can be implemented for any of the Pratt & Whitney military products, including F119, F100, F117 and F135. This partnership is the model for future Pratt & Whitney public-private partnerships with other Department of Defense (DoD) depots and has been considered as a model in the aerospace industry.
Pratt & Whitney has worked with the USAF to implement the principles of the Raytheon Technologies Corporation Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center. The effort focused on improving the efficiency of our largest military customer through the use of set-up reduction, total productive maintenance, relentless root cause analysis, bench marking, value stream mapping and other ACE tools.
