    • D.

      Inspection.

    Correct Answer
    B. Customer support.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is customer support. In the context of supply discrepancy reports (SDR), customer support is responsible for handling and managing these reports. They are the point of contact for customers who have issues or discrepancies with their supplies. Therefore, it is logical to keep all SDR suspense copies in the customer support department as they are the ones who need to refer to these reports for resolution and follow-up.

    Storing all supply interface system (SIFS) images for the purpose of backup into a local user file is a duplication of effort and an abuse of system resources because

    • A.

      Local user files are purged monthly.

    • B.

      SIFS has built-in recovery and contingency procedures.

    • C.

      SIFS images are stored on the Supply Management System computer.

    • D.

      The Air Force Equipment Management System receives and stores duplicate images.

    Correct Answer
    B. SIFS has built-in recovery and contingency procedures.
    Explanation
    Storing all SIFS images for backup into a local user file is unnecessary because SIFS already has built-in recovery and contingency procedures. These procedures ensure that the system can recover from any failures or contingencies without the need for additional backups. Storing duplicate images in a local user file would only result in a duplication of effort and an abuse of system resources. Therefore, it is not necessary to store SIFS images in a local user file.

    Correct Answer
    D. Functional systems management section.
    Explanation
    The Functional Systems Management Section must review the residue portion of the Supply Interface System end-of-day report to ensure users clear residue images in a timely manner. This section is responsible for managing and maintaining the functionality of the system, including monitoring and resolving any issues or discrepancies. They have the authority and expertise to oversee the residue portion and ensure that users are promptly clearing any remaining images. The Accountable Officer, Individual Flight Chiefs, and Quality Assurance Element may have other responsibilities related to the system but are not specifically tasked with reviewing the residue portion.
