Supply Support Planning

In conjunction with PMS 312L and NSWCPD C315, Asystek has developed and implemented a comprehensive risk-based solution to review, analyze and track Ship Change Documents (SCDs) for related sparing impacts, ensuring appropriate stock postures. This solution includes interfacing with In-Service Engineering Agents (ISEAs) and Technical Points of Contacts (TPOC) to ensure initial, interim and life cycle spare requirements have been adequately addressed for each installation. In addition, Provisioning Technical Document (PTD) data is reviewed to ensure correct material support and allowance support codes, such as:

  • Acquisition Advice Codes (AAC)
  • Mission Essentiality Codes (MEC)
  • Mission Criticality Codes (MCC)
  • Allowance Type Codes (ATC)
  • Source, Maintainability and Reliability (SM&R) Codes

Asystek Solutions Group also provides advanced expert analytics to identify initial, interim and life cycle sparing requirements and solutions for both Onboard Repair Parts (OBRPs) and Shore Based Spares (SBS). This analysis is performed for all newly introduced equipment (non-standard), as well as existing US Navy and DLA standard equipment. The analysis is conducted during the SCD development phase (TAT Review) and the SCD installation phase (during CNO availabilities). This analysis is based on:

  • Safety
  • System Criticality
  • Equipment Application
  • Failure Rates (MTBF, MTTR, LDT, OEM recommendations)
  • Maintenance Philosophies
  • Budget Requirements (Program Support Data (PSD) sheets, POM cycles)
  • National Stock Number (NSN) requirements
  • Allowance Parts List (APL) requirements
  • Identification and application of Allowances
  • Spare Parts Management (outfitting, storage, and dissemination)
  • Current Stock Postures
  • Material Management Codes

The end result is an optimal stocking solution that ensures the required allowances, configuration controls, budgets and stock postures throughout the equipment’s life cycle.
