Martin Ahmad, deputy head for the Commander, Fleet Readiness Center of the Naval Air Systems Command, presented COMFRC’s completed and upcoming initiatives at the Sea Air Space Exposition held Monday to Wednesday.
NAVAIR said Wednesday Ahmad provided a brief on the Naval Aviation Enterprise’s Sustainment Vision 2020 for attendees of the event on Tuesday.
Ahmad said that NAVAIR’s fleet readiness centers have completed work on all aircraft that required depot-level repairs and have reached production goals for the last two years.
The COMFRC deputy cited compliance with the Critical Chain Project Management principles, the enhanced accuracy of the bill for parts and materials and rapid engineering investigations as factors for the optimized throughput rate.
Ahmad also noted collaborations with the Defense Logistics Agency, the Naval Supply Systems Command’s Weapon Systems Support and type commanders and program managers.
The COMFRC intended to enhance aircraft maintenance and modification operations, complete in-service repairs and increase the production of component repairs to address the backlog and reduce in-reporting aircraft in need of parts, Ahmad detailed at the exposition.
He added that the office will hire more artisans, engineers and logistics personnel in support of its operations.
NAE’s Sustainment Vision 2020 is targeted towards the four major areas of the sustainment value stream which are supply, manpower, maintenance planning and infrastructure, Ahmad said.
Ahmad remarked that the sustainment value stream areas are consolidated in an operations center to allow officials of various rank to access a uniform metrics in support of preparedness.
NAE executives endorsed the enterprise’s sustainment vision in October 2016.
