The US Army Corps of Engineers USACE has constructed a wide vari-ety of civil works structures. Many of these structures have surpassed their design life and deteriorated to a point that better tools and more extensive analysis are needed to identify the most critical maintenance and repair MR needs. The work documented in this report analyzes how data collected in Facility Equipment Maintenance FEM can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of maintenance to improve the condition of lock infrastructure components. This includes analyzing how data already being collected in FEM can be used to evaluate maintenance effectiveness and also what additional data could be collected. In the process of addressing these objectives, numerous limitations in how FEM and Operational Condition Assessment OCA could be used to address this question were discovered, and they are documented in this report. The report also discusses numerous ways FEM could be used more effectively to address this question and the general benefit of USACE. A pilot Maintenance Effectiveness Review MER was held at a USACE lock and dam project.
