A systematic review of Quality Maintenance records and all production actions which will provide adequate proof and confidence that work performed or material manufactured will perform as designed and that there is documentary evidence to the effect.
- What started the SUBSAFE program?
On April 10, 1963 a flooding casualty occurred in the engine room of the USS THRESHER (SSN 593). A piping failure in one of the salt water systems was subsequently determined to be the most likely cause for the loss of the ship and all personnel onboard.
-The 3 catastrophic historical events that proved the need for Quality Assurance and its continued development.
o USS THRESHER (SSN 593) had a salt water piping casualty in the engine room resulting in losing all personnel and the ship. (10 APR 1963)
o –Space Shuttle CHALLENGER exploded killing 7 personnel due to an O-ring failure
o –USS IWO JIMA (LPH 2) encountered a major steam leak in the Fire room onboard resulting in the death of (10) watch standers.
- State the fundamental rule of a craftsman?
Maintain technical specifications at all times.
-Technical Work Document (TWD)
Documents to provide the Craftsman with clear, concise, technically correct instructions to complete the maintenance task.
Three types of TWDs:
Maintenance Procedure(MP), Formal Work Package (FWP), Controlled Work Package (CWP).
Formal Work Package (FWP)
It coordinates a single document; material, initial conditions, procedure, test, inspections, and system restoration of a task. It creates a procedure for a task that has no Maintenance Procedure, i.e. no MRC.
List the elements of an FWP.
Material, Initial Conditions, Procedures, Test and Inspection, System Restoration
-Controlled Work Package (CWP)
Required when higher authority requires OQE to be generated.
Any statement of fact, either quantitative or qualitative, pertaining to the quality of a product or services based on observations, measurements or test which can be verified. Examples include QA forms 17, 27, 34
FWP + OQE = CWP
What is a QA form 1, 2, 3, 9, 17, 27, 34?
1: Material Receipt Inspection Form
2: Controlled Material ID tag (Green)
3: Controlled Material Reject Tag (Red)
9: Maintenance Certification Record/Re-Entry Control (Cover Page)
17: Test and Inspection record
27: Drop Test Record
34: Joint/Component Torque and Assembly Record

The QA Bible gives guidance and instructions for maintenance procedures and associated QA forms.
*The fundamental rule for all maintenance (the Craftsman)
is that technical specifications must be met at all times.
QA Craftsman 301:
Written instructions for use in production and repair, delineating all the essential elements and guidance necessary to produce acceptable and reliable products.
Formal Work Package:
The records that provide the OQE necessary to certify that the completed maintenance was authorized, required tests were completed, and work was certified. This consists of the FWP and OQE.
Controlled Work Package:
Provides a high level of confidence in the material condition of the hull integrity boundary and in the ability of submarines to recover from flooding and control surface casualties (bow, stern plane, rudder). It applies to all submarine classes.
Safety Of Ship Maintenance Item List. Comprised of (17) evolutions that have significant potential to impact the ship’s watertight integrity, damage control capability or which require special attention to ensure ship safety (normally for submarines).
A systematic review of Quality Maintenance records and all production actions which will provide adequate proof and confidence that work performed or material manufactured will perform as designed and that there is documentary evidence to this effect.
Any statement of fact, either quantitative or qualitative, pertaining to the quality of a product or service based on observations, measurements, or tests, which can be verified.
Objective Quality Evidence (OQE):
Multi-Purpose Aircraft Carrier/Nuclear Multi-purpose Aircraft Carrier the centerpieces of the Navy’s offensive and defensive strategy, carriers support and operate aircraft that engage in attacks on airborne, and ashore targets which threaten our use of the sea. These vessels also engage in sustained operations in support of other forces.
Guided Missile Cruiser Multi-mission surface combatants with extensive warfare capability support battle groups and amphibious forces. Also serve as flagship of surface action groups and can operate independently. Extensive war fighting capability.
