The CNO has imposed constraints on new ship projects in the areas of shipboard manning, ship displacement, and follow-ship costs. As a result of these constraints, it was necessary to develop new maintenance strategies that reduce Organization-level maintenance and emphasize Intermediate and Depot-level maintenace, rotable-pool item replacement, and repair of repairables for the CNO-designated new-ship projects. These ships have been called LO-MIX ships. In establishing a logistics support system to serve the new maintenance strategy, a revised approach to establishing support requirements for systems, equipments, and components is required to meet acquisition time and cost constraints. A technique has been developed that makes use of the technical documentation, historical data, and similarity comparisons of like components and provides the basis for reducing the estimated cost of developing logistics support requirements for systems, equipments, and components involved in the designated ships. This technique is called the LO-MIX Maintenance Engineering Analysis LMMEA technique. Preliminary verification of the technique has been completed by applications to selected units. Author
