Abstract:

This report is an evaluation of the FAAs program to modernize the National Airspace System and reduce Maintenance and Operation Costs through replacement of present systems with state-of-the-art equipment, centralization of the maintenance work force and remote monitoring of equipmentfacilities. A conclusion of the study was the FAAs Maintenance Program is a viable approach to meeting these goals. The ATT study team made seven recommendations they believed would ensure improved productivity and reduced operating costs. The objectives of the ATT study were to evaluate the FAAs modernization program, and then, based on ATTs experience in their modernization effort, make recommendations to improve the FAAs program. The recommendations can be generalized into three areas which are 1 Separate the monitoring and control of facilities from the automation and centralization of operations, thereby enabling independent efforts in those areas. 2 Establish an overall program management plan, and 3 Establish a model for centralization of the work force in the automated environment.
