Naval Sustainment System

The NSS plan is organized into

six foundational pillars:

1
A surge/aircraft-on-ground (AOG) cell brings together experts from all lines of support to quickly fix constraints of short-term down aircraft. The concept has already proven successful in the commercial realm, and promises four major benefits: reducing turnaround time, fostering strategic partnerships, increasing predictability and encouraging a more productive organization.

2
Fleet Readiness Center (FRC) reform is intended to create elite-level, organic facilities that will adopt proven commercial practices to maximize quality and cost efficiency while minimizing cycle times.

3
Organizational-level reform is designed to balance demand with maximized maintenance performance close to the flight line while improving safety.

O-Level Reform

4
Supply chain reform integrates various stakeholders into a single accountable entity responsible for the end-to-end material process. This change will provide the right parts to the right place at the right time.
5
Engineering and maintenance reform will develop an engineering-driven reliability process that improves how systems are sustained.
6
Governance, accountability and organization are combined and designed as a single point of accountability for sustainment with the infrastructure to better support fundamental changes.
