(Cont.) An analysis of corrective and routine maintenance tasks was conducted. Analysis included the diesel engine as well as its subsystems of diesel lube oil, diesel freshwater, diesel seawater, diesel air start, and diesel fuel oil. The analysis centered on maintenance task times and costs. Time factors analyzed included the time between maintenance actions, the time awaiting parts, the time to conduct the maintenance, and the impacts on operational availability. Cost factors analyzed included the material costs and the manpower costs (both sailors and off-hull workers). As patterns were recognized, high impact items were highlighted and recommendations to reduce risk to operational availability were given.(Cont.) An analysis of corrective and routine maintenance tasks was conducted.
