The individual will be a part of a government/contract team that develops and executes aircraft carrier life cycle maintenance plans that enable the ships to achieve their 50-year design life.

This position requires excellent knowledge of the Navy’s ship maintenance philosophy (i.e. Condition Based Maintenance and Reliability Centered Maintenance), process rules, baseline availability work package (BAWP) planning, Class Maintenance Plans, the availability budgeting process, and the roles of different organizations involved in aircraft carrier life cycle maintenance. The ability to retrieve and analyze system maintenance data from local and corporate databases is essential to success.

In addition, the position requires superior writing skills that will be used to draft and edit capstone documents such as Technical Foundation Papers (TFPs), directives such as the CVN68-CVN78 Aircraft Carrier Class Maintenance Plan (ACCMP) Manual, Life Cycle Engineering Plans (LCEPs), and the CPA Process Guide. Candidates must be able to write in the style commonly used within Navy organizational directives and instructions.

Additional attributes of the successful candidate:
- Knowledge and operating relationships of ship systems (particularly those found in aircraft carriers)
- Knowledge of the “9-Step Process” used for availability resource planning by the Fleet
- Extensive experience briefing senior management and developing briefing materials
- Prior service as an afloat department head or principal assistant (aircraft carrier preferred)

  • Update and refine labor and material cost estimates for Aircraft Carrier maintenance.
  • Provide support for analysis to determine Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF), Mean Time To Repair (MTTR), reliability calculations, and development of representative intervals, durations, maintenance cycles and repair mandays for depot level maintenance availabilities.
  • Maintain the Aircraft Carrier Class Maintenance Plan (ACCMP) Manual. Draft Advance Change Notices (ACNs) and revisions as required.
  • Maintain the aircraft carrier Technical Foundation Papers (TFPs). Draft ACNs and revisions as required.
  • Write and update procedures for the CPA Process Guide.
  • Analyze carrier maintenance labor and material costs to identify trends in expenditures for both timed and corrective maintenance, modernization and support services. Develop written reports and presentations to explain objectives, methodology, and the results of analysis.
  • Provide oversight for review PMS Force Revisions to determine impact of changes to the CMP.
  • Identify, track, and bring visibility to cost savings, cost avoidances, and cost increases that affect the operating and support (O&S) costs of aircraft carriers.
  • Assess expected impacts to OPNAVLTR notional and corporate planning estimates via the nine-step process through analysis of maintenance activity estimates (expected cost) and completion cost.
  • Attend and participate in COR-E meetings as a representative of the CWRT.
  • Prepare both formal and informal correspondence, draft point papers to summarize analysis results through charts/graphs and reports to document and communicate life-cycle management issues and/or findings.

Experience Requirements:

  • Minimum of 10 years’ experience in positions demonstrating expertise in the job task areas (15 years is optimum).
  • Knowledge of aircraft carrier systems is highly desired.

Educational Requirements:

  • A Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in Engineering/Engineering Technology or a degree with emphasis on statistical analysis is desired. Demonstrated expertise in the job task areas cited above can substitute for the degree requirement.
