This thesis examines the key issues that have caused Repair Turn Around Time RTAT of Depot Level Repairables DLRs managed by the Ships Parts Control Center SPCC and overhauled by naval shipyards to be excessive. Many of the DLRs repaired by naval shipyards exceed the Naval Supply System commands goal for 60 days. Four Navy Shipyards were visited to gather RTAT data on DLRs and identify potential improvements in the Designated Overhaul Point DOP repair process that will reduce RTAT. An analysis of the policies and procedures used by SPCC in preparing the workload forecase as well as the effects of the forecast on the shipyard repair process was also conducted. Recommendations are made to improve the management of repairables in shipyards through Command support and the use of an Automated Repairables Management Information System ARMIS. Recommendations are also offered to improve piece part support used in the repair of DLRs. Keywords Repairables, Management, Depot turnaround time, Navy shipyards, Inventory management.
