Summary:
This documented briefing lays down baseline measurements of current Marine repair cycle times, order and ship times from retail supplies, and order and ship times from wholesale supplies. The calendar year 1996 was selected as the baseline from which to judge future performance. Each of the three processes measured here suffers from delays and high variability, thus affecting each of the other processes. The  Read more...

Abstract:

This documented briefing lays down baseline measurements of current Marine repair cycle times, order and ship times from retail supplies, and order and ship times from wholesale supplies. The calendar year 1996 was selected as the baseline from which to judge future performance. Each of the three processes measured here suffers from delays and high variability, thus affecting each of the other processes. The briefing provides an initial diagnosis of the reasons for the baseline performance and suggests recommendations for improvement. Three appendices provide baseline performance for each process from the aggregate down to the unit level and for the overall process down to specific segments.
