Abstract:

The FLEET RELIABILITY ASSESSMENT PROGRAM FRAP was created as a result of a top priority Chief of Naval Materiel CNM requirement for a fast, reliable, and accurate system of problem identification on new electronic equipment installations aboard ships. FRAP typically monitors a selected sample of an equipment population over a period of six months. The failure data collected from maintenance actions performed during this period is analyzed and reports are generated which identify the problems and recommend corrective actions. The basic goals of the program are to improve operational reliability and to reduce life cycle costs. An important objective of the program is the quick identification of problems so that corrective actions can be taken early in the equipment life cycle. There are several distinct advantages to this approach Reliability, Contractor Liability, Cost Avoidance, Allowance Parts List, Data Collection, Information Distribution, and Corrective Actions.
