Abstract:

This report describes the final year of a three-year project to develop, implement, and evaluate an Army Maintenance Performance System MPS. From specific maintenance-related performance measures provided by the MPS, managers and supervisors can assess maintenance effectiveness and relate it to repairmen skills and maintenance training needs. The MPS establishes training priorities, and specifies training resources and methods for overcoming specific deficiencies. Chapter 1 describes the scope of the system and its operating environment. Some limitations in the development of the prototype system are also described. MPS system components are described under headings of data input required for system operation, processing hardware, and required personnel. Chapter 2 describes data collection and computational procedures, and cites the algorithms used to produce reports. Dissemination procedures for the output reports to appropriate users are also described. Chapter 3 provides examples and discussion of representative MPS reports, and identifies recipients of each report. Chapter 4 describes MPS reports in terms of management and training information and gives examples of possible actions to take based on report content. An appendix describes the algorithms used to compute the outputs shown on MPS reports.
