Collaboration leads to success

Phillip Smith, 559th Aircraft Maintenance Group sheet metal mechanic, works on a C-17 Globemaster III at Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex. The last of 76 of these aircraft modified with a missile threat detection and countermeasures system at Robins departed Sept. 11. The program was the result of two squadrons – the 559th and 562nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadrons - collaborating to form a relationship that has not only reduced cost and improved quality on the line, but also resulted in a 93 percent on-time delivery rate to its customers over that time period.
