NMCI gets a ship status tool

A Navy software application that gives a snapshot of the maintenance status of surface ships is undergoing final tests to run on the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet and is expected to go into operation next month.

The Maintenance Support Tool provides analysis and metrics of maintenance jobs that can then be transmitted to personal digital assistants of port engineers and ship maintenance crews.

Capt. Steve Nimitz, action officer for the team responsible for integrating the application with other processes, said MST also can prioritize work by parts availability and work center.

"MST will bring better accuracy and utility" to the Maintenance Figure of Merit process, Nimitz said in a Navy release. Users can see a ship's MFOM status and use the tool to edit, screen, estimate, validate and correct configuration data, according to the release. They can also create reports.

The MST data goes automatically to regional Maintenance Automated Information Systems.
