Maintenance Data Systems
CHAPTER 12 MAINTENANCE AND MATERIAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS The  Standard  Navy  Maintenance  and  Material Management  Systems  (3-M)  was  developed  to  meet  the need  for  a  more  effective  means  of  recording,  reporting, and  evaluating  the  maintenance  requirements  of  the fleet.  In  the  past,  most  maintenance  work  was  recorded only  in  the  shipboard  logs.  Although  some  reports  were required  for  failures  of  specified  electronic  equipment systems  and  components,  material  commands  had  no way of knowing if maintenance was being performed on  equipment  under  their  cognizance.  There  was  also a  lack  of  financial  information.  There  was  no  effective way of determining what part of the ship’s operating target  (OPTAR)  was  being  spent  for  repair  parts  and how much for consumable material. These  needs  were  partially  met  by  using  different fund  codes  for  the  different  classifications  of  material. For   example,   Equipage,   Repair   parts,   and Consumables.  Commands  were  then  able  to  evaluate OPTAR usage. It  was  not  until  the  advent  of  the Maintenance   Data   System   (MDS)   that   cognizant commands   could   determine   where   maintenance man-hours and materials were being used and thereby evaluate the performance of equipment. While   3-M   and   MDS   are   primarily   the responsibility of other departments supply does have a definite  part  in  making  MDS  work.  This  chapter discusses the general concept of the shipboard 3-M Systems  and  your  responsibility  in  the  overall effectiveness  of  the  program. THE 3-M SYSTEMS Each  year,  newly  developed  equipments  requiring highly  specialized  maintenance  are  installed  aboard  the Navy’s ships. The maintenance requirements for an electric motor or a circulating pump are relatively few and simple. This is because of simplicity of design, a small number of moving parts, and the fact that several person may be qualified to perform the maintenance work. This is not the case for automatic engineering controls or the computers used for the control or missile guidance  systems.  To  perform  properly,  these  control systems  must  react  immediately  and  accurately  to changing  conditions.  The  3-M  systems  endeavor  to substitute   preventive   maintenance   for   corrective maintenance,  thus  reducing  equipment  malfunction  and downtime. Proper evaluation of equipment cannot be based only   on   planned   exercises   when   all   possible preparations are made ahead of time. The 3-M systems provide  a  means  of  continuously  reporting  maintenance actions, equipment downtime, repair parts used, and the maintenance  personnel  required  to  perform  the  work, (Equipment  downtime  is  the  amount  of  time  an equipment  is  inoperable  due  to  performance  of maintenance, lack of repair parts to fix it, or repair is beyond the capability of ship’s personnel.) The 3-M systems is not limited to complex systems. It is equally applicable to, and effective for all types of shipboard equipment. The  ship’s  3-M  systems  consist  of  the  following systems  designed  for  maintenance  management PMS (Planned Maintenance System) —Inactive  Equipment  Maintenance  (IEM) MDS (Maintenance Data System) —AMS  (Alteration  Management  System) —IMMS  (Intermediate  Maintenance  Activity Maintenance Management System) The  scope  of  these  systems  of  most  importance  to  the SK3   and   SK2   is   described   in   the   following subparagraphs. PLANNED MAINTENANCE SYSTEM The  Planned  Maintenance  System  (PMS)  was developed  after  extensive  research  on  various  types  of equipment   to   determine   for   each   equipment   all maintenance   actions   required.   This   includes   the frequency  of  performance,  procedures  for  performing the  maintenance,  and  the  skill  level  (rate)  required  to accomplish  the  work.  Also  the  tools  and  materials needed to do the job, normal time required, and safety precautions  to  be  observed.  The  system  provides planning   and   scheduling   information   to   the departments heads, division officers, and maintenance 12-1
