Abstract:

Naval aviation is a large and complex operation, with multiple stakeholders and an ingrained tension between generating combat readiness for current operations and procurement funds for future capabilities. Naval aviation leadership has developed an enterprise approach to managing these often competing requirements that uses modern business process tools under the fundamental principle of alignment. This process showed remarkable results at the factory-level, with production efforts generating significant savings and process efficiencies. From that initial success, the enterprise model was enlarged to overall management of aircraft flight hours, supply parts, personnel and production of replacement airframes. It was further enlarged to encompass the aircraft carrier fleet.
