BOSTON, June 12 (UPI) -- Supply Chain Visions Inc. has been picked by Morgan Borszcz Consulting to help provide technical and strategic support the USAF's KC-46 tanker program.
Under the teaming agreement, Supply Chain Visions will utilize its expertise in supply chain modeling and simulation to assess various sustainment strategies for the Air Force's KC-46 Program Office.
The Boeing KC-46, based on the airframe of Boeing's 767 commercial aircraft, is a next-generation aerial refueling plane and will replace the Air Force's aging KC-135 Stratotankers.
"The KC-46 is a key component of our nation's ability to project power in the future, and we're honored to support Morgan Borszcz Consulting in helping ensure a cost-effective sustainment strategy," stated Steve Geary, president of Supply Chain Visions. "This work leverages our experience in designing, supporting, and evaluating sustainment strategies for other weapons systems."
Christine Morgan, chief executive officer and president of Morgan Borszcz Consulting, said the firm helps its customers "optimize business processes and achieve operational efficiencies."
"Modeling the future for the Air Force is an exciting opportunity to do that for one of the most important programs in the Air Force portfolio," she said.
Neither company disclosed additional details of the partnering.
