Project Announcement: Maintenance Quality Analysis

The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) mission is to provide full lifecycle support for naval aviation aircraft, weapons, and systems operated by Sailors and Marines. Determining the quality of the integrated maintenance capability is difficult using current analysis methods, systems, and tools. The data to support this analysis exists in many disparate data sources and exceeds the current size limitations of the tools available to NAVAIR. The data systems used to collect the maintenance feedback require manual entries and are inconsistent in providing relevant feedback. The problem is extremely complex since it encompasses multiple aircraft platforms, maintenance locations, and touches numerous operational systems, processes, and personnel, but this level of complexity makes NAVAIR the perfect testing site for this project.

The overall objective of this initiative is to utilize the capability of the SAS Results as a Service environment (RaaS) to assess the overall maintenance quality of the O, I, and D Maintenance levels. The initial phase will leverage and integrate available data from the NAVAIR maintenance system. Historical analysis will be conducted on the combined data set to provide NAVAIR with a complete population analysis that identifies BUNO history and maintenance variation from scheduled metrics. By building descriptive statistics on this historical data, baselines of maintenance quality will be developed.

Those interested in participating in this initiative should contact Debbie Lilu, debral@ncms.org or (734) 262-0758 by September 15, 2017. We encourage participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), including Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs).
