INFORMATION PAPER 4 August 2005
Purpose: Provide information on Anniston Army Depot's (ANAD) capacity/surge
capabilities. Information is provided to finalize discussions that were not completed
during BRAC Commissioner visit to ANAD on 3 August 2005 based on time constraints.
Information: ANAD has a current capacity of 4.1 M Direct Labor Hours (DLH) (1-8-5
shifts). Red River Army Depot's (RRAD) reported capacity is 2.4 M direct labor hours.
ANAD has a planned execution plan of 5.1 M DLH in FY05 and approximately 7.2 M
DLH in FY06 and RRAD is reporting approximately 4 M DLH for FY05 and 6.4 M DLH
Based on BRAC recommendation ANAD is to add 2.2 M DLH of combat vehicle
capacity, ANAD capacity will be increased to 6.3 M DLH (1-8-5 shift). As reported in
briefing charts during BRAC Commissioner visit ANAD is currently adding
approximately 600,000 DLH of capacity with construction of a new engine power train
facility, along with the construction of a prototype facility. This brings total capacity after
BRAC to 6.9 M DLH (1-8-5).
Additional capacity can be increased to 10.4 M DLH by adding 1.5 shifts or 13.9 M DLH
by adding 2 shifts (2-8-5). Capacity chart is provided as attachment.
The actual work split for tactical versus combat vehicle at RRAD is unknown. Using a
work split of 60% for combat vehicle (transitioned to ANAD) and 40% for tactical
vehicles and using FY06 RRAD surge numbers, ANAD would have to support a surge
requirement of 11.0 M DLH (7.2 M DLH ANAD/3.8 M DLH RRAD).
ANAD would be able to support a surge requirement of 11.0 M DLH on 1.5 shifts and
increased overtime or go to two shifts. ANAD partnering relationships allows further
flexibility with executing surge requirements.
Conclusion: ANAD is currently exceeding execution plans for surge in FY05 and with
the added 2.2 M DLH of capacity as recommended by BRAC can support all of the
combat vehicle workload at ANAD and RRAD. If the 60/40% work split for combat
vehicle/tactical is less than the 60% assumed then less capacity will be required. Combat
vehicle capability still exists within the DOD (i.e. Marine Corp Barstow).
