    achieve uniform maintenance standards and criteria
  12. Efficiency
    effective use of available manpower and material resources in maintenance and maintenance support efforts .
  13. Documentation
    recording maintenance and maintenance support actions to establish a material history.
  14. Analysis
    used to improve reliability and maintain ability of systems and equipment, and to reduce cost of material owner ship.
  15. Configuration Status Accounting (CSA)
    reporting and recording changes to installed equipment, equipment configuration specifications, and ship board location.
  16. Scheduling
    standardized method for planning, managing, executing and tracking maintenance requirements and accomplishments. This includes component requirements from the Class Maintenance Plans (CMP) and the Integrated Class Maintenance Plan (ICMP) .
  17. What is Policy A?
    a . The Ship' s 3-M System is a management tool that provides efficient and uniform methods for conducting and recording preventive, alterative, and corrective maintenance. Planned Maintenance System (PMS) and Maintenance Data System (MDS) tools are provided to manage ship maintenance.
  18. What is Policy B?
    PMS is a standardized method for planning, scheduling, and accomplishing preventive maintenance by ship's force. PMS maintenance procedures will be developed in accordance with Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) concepts as specified inreferences ( c ) and (d). The procedures are to be developed by the activities of the Systems Commands (SYSCOMs) responsible for the development and procurement of the systems / equipment for active, new construction, major conversion and activation of ships, boats, and crafts. The procedures are to be the minimum required to maintain equipment in a fully operable condition within specifications. PMS supersedes all organizational level planned or preventive maintenance systems or programs. Where a difference between the requirements and/or procedures of PMS and other technical publications or systems exists, PMS requirements will prevail. Differences shall be reported using PMS feedback reporting procedures.
  19. What is Policy C?
    To reduce PMS requirements while in extended maintenance periods and other times when equipment is not operated, an Inactive Equipment Maintenance (IEM) system will provide modified PMS procedures for the maintenance of systems and equipment .
  20. What is Policy D?
    MDS is the means by which maintenance personnel can report applicable maintenance requirements and configuration changes on all categories of equipment. MDS will be setup so that maintenance personnel will record maintenance data only once.
  21. What is Equipment Configuration Status Accounting?
    Configuration status accounting, or the ability to accurately document, track and maintain the configuration of a ship's systems is a critical factor in maintaining proper shipboard logistics support. NAVSEASYSCOM maintains a central database with the ships' configuration data .
  22. What is Configuration Data Manager (CDM)?
    For each ship class, a single activity called a Configuration Data Manager (CDM), has been designated the control authority for accuracy and completeness of the configuration information. Prior to ship delivery, the SYSCOM and the delivering activity are responsible for the initial accuracy and completeness of the central database. After delivery, it is imperative that the ship maintains and updates its configuration data in the Ship's Equipment File (SEF), through the submission of configuration change reports.
  23. An item is considered to be a Conf iguration Worthy Item (CWI) if one or more criteria are met. How many criteria are there?
  24. What is criteria (a) of deciding a Configuration Worthy Item (CWI)?
    ( a ) Any item that is bought from an outside activity
  25. What is criteria (b) of deciding a Configuration Worthy Item (CWI)?
    (b) Any item, including software that has a separate specific ation
  26. What is criteria (c) of deciding a Configuration Worthy Item (CWI)?
    ( c ) Any item that has a separate drawing,
  27. What is criteria (d) of deciding a Configuration Worthy Item (CWI)?
    (d) Any item that is a separate line item or subline item on a purchase order or contract
  28. What is criteria (e) of deciding a Configuration Worthy Item (CWI)?
    ( e ) Any item that has or requires any form of separate technical or logistics document ( e .g., supply support, test equipment requirement, calibration standard requirement, technical manuals and/or repair standards, PMS, e t c .), Maintenance Assist Modules (MAMs), intermediate and/or depot level maintenance plans or drawings, installation or configuration control drawings and/or selected records,
  29. What is criteria ( f ) of deciding a Configuration Worthy Item (CWI)?
    ( f ) Any item needed to support software tracking
  30. What are alteration installation activities required to provide upon completion of installation?
    Alteration installation activities are required to provide configuration change data to the ship upon completion of equipment installation. Configuration changes made by the ship are reported through the Ship's 3-M System. For ships with Maintenance Support Centers (MSCs ), the MSC will research a approve all configuration change requests.
  31. What are the overall responsibilities for the commands of the operating forces?
    Commands of the operating forces are responsible for the proper implementation of the Ship's 3-M System in the Fleet, and are responsible for informing appropriate seniors in the chain of command of those conditions that affect material readiness. The development of management tools at the command level is encouraged.
