SHIPS CONFIGURATION AND
LOGISTICS INFORMATION SYSTEM
The SCLSIS is NAVSEAs equipment ac-
counting system. It replaced the Ship Equipment
Configuration Accounting System (SECAS) in
January 1989. The need to provide all managers
with a single, standard source of accurate ship
configuration data and to reduce fleet reporting
to a single requirement dictated a central Navy
system for monitoring the configuration and
logistics support requirements of fleet units. These
needs and requirements have been refined into the
The SCLSIS is applicable to all ships of the
active and reserve fleets (except certain exclusions
of the SSBNs and nuclear propulsion systems).
It covers the life cycle of the ship starting during
SECNAVINST 4130.2 assigns responsibility
to NAVSEA for maintenance and control of
ships configuration data, including related
platforms, systems, and equipment.
For detailed instruction on the SCLSIS refer
to NAVSEA 909-700.
An ILO is conducted concurrently with the
maintenance overhaul. The primary objective of
the ILO is to make sure the ships true
configuration is supported both in logistics
support documentation and by material provided
to the ship at the end of an overhaul. Re-
sponsibilities assigned to activities included in the
ILO process are discussed in detail in the ILO
Policy and Procedures Manual published by
During an overhaul, configuration changes
that occur on board the ship must be reported to
the ILO team. The ILO team documents the
changes and reports them upline. Configuration
data is then sent to the naval supervising activity
(NSA), which is an interface between the ILO
team and the configuration data manager (CDM).
The CDM reviews the data and submits the
information to the SPCC. The SPCC processes
the data into the SCLSIS data base and the WSF.
Once the SCLSIS data base and WSF have been
updated, the data is provided to the ILO site to
update their files by manual or automated means.
Responsibilities During ILO
The ships ILO team has certain responsi-
bilities to make sure all documentation is
accurate and submitted to the necessary activities.
The ILO team will serve as a focal point for
tracking receipt of all configuration changes
applicable during the overhaul. This includes all
configuration changes made or that occurred
during overhaul and will be documented by the
ILO team and furnished to the NSA.
COSAL Maintenance Documentation
During an overhaul, various activities assist
the ship in documenting configuration changes
into a COSAL. To make sure the accurate and
timely documentation of all configuration changes
is made, the ship must work closely with the ILO
team, the NSA, and the SPCC. The responsi-
bilities of each are defined in this section and all
personnel should become familiar with those
responsibilities; for example, once an equipment
or component is installed on board, what events
occur as a result and who is responsible for each
Whenever possible, specific
responsibilities are presented in the sequence in
which they take place.
During an overhaul each ship is responsible
for reporting all configuration modifications,
additions, or deletions made by ships force,
tender, repair ship, or intermediate maintenance
activity (IMA). It must be understood that the
NSA has the responsibility for documenting
configuration changes that take place as part of
the shipyard overhaul effort. The NSA assumes
responsibility for changes made outside of the
overhaul effort (ships force, tender, repair ship,
or shore intermediate maintenance activity
[SIMA]) if the ship documents and reports those
changes to the NSA.
The hands on technician is most aware of
the equipment changes that are being done in the
work center. Figure 2-16 shows what kind of
changes, actions, and who is responsible for
updating the COSAL.
Individuals responsible for certain actions in
processing changes are shown below. Normally,
the first action is taken by the technician.
The technician responsible for the
maintenance of the equipment initiates the
configuration change report (CCR) and forwards
it to the work center supervisor.
The work center supervisor validates the
equipment change, reviews the CCR for accuracy
and completeness, and forwards it to the division
officer and department head.
The division officer and department head
satisfy themselves as to the accuracy and
