The goal of the Destroyer Engineered Operating Cycle DDEOC Program is to effect an early improvement in the material condition of ships, at an acceptable cost, while maintaining or increasing their operational availability during an extended operating cycle. In support of this goal, System Maintenance Analyses SMAs are being conducted for selected systems and subsystems of designated surface combatants. The principal element of an SMA is the Review of Experience ROE. This report documents the ROE for the DDG-37 Class Distilling Plant System. The ROE is an analysis of existing and anticipated problems that affect the operational performance or maintenance program of a ship system. The ROE report serves as a vehicle for assessing the significance and consequences of identified maintenance problems. It also presents specific recommendations and a system maintenance policy for preventing or reducing the impact of problem occurrence while improving material condition and maintaining or increasing system availability throughout an extended ship operating cycle. The Distilling Plant System ROE included an analysis of all available maintenance data sources. The documented maintenance experience of the system was reviewed through analysis of Maintenance Data System MDS data, Casualty Reports CASREPs, and system overhaul records.
