AMMA offers US Navy support of AMMA members to stand up Industry Panels for security, alteration installations and preservation. AMMA joins Joint Industry Alteration Installation Panel: Provide “industry” recommendations to the Navy as to how to improve AIT integration and support into various types of ship repair and modernization contracts (MSMO, IDIQ, FFP, etc.). Examine existing Navy contract vehicles and sponsors to identify possible consolidations, modifications, improvements or elimination to better facilitate the use of AIT alteration and modernization teams. All recommendations should follow the “SHIPMAIN” process to combine/eliminate redundancies while reducing overhead and streamlining existing processes. Slide8: AMMA ACCOMPLISHMENTS AMMA and MSMO Joint Industry Alteration Installation Panel examined existing Navy alteration installation processes and developed five recommendations: Transition and standardize ship modernization & repair work to DON contracts. Consolidate COR and ACO authority for ship modernization & repair at RMCs. Move RMMCO functions to MSMO-Prime. Empower the MSMO-Prime to function as the maintenance team work integrator. Increase contractor incentives for successful work integration. Slide9: AMMA FUTURE GOALS Continue support of US Navy Fleet Maintenance Board of Directors (FMBOD) Alteration Installation Team Government Working Group to further better organization, planning and integration in modernization Work with MSMO Contractors on integration of Alteration Installation Teams into MSMO availabilities. Monitor the Memorandum of Understanding between Sponsors and Mid Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center in performance of USS Iwo Jima LHD-7. Continue to communicate and invite Sponsor representatives to meetings for discussing issues involving marine modernization and integration. Slide10: AMMA FUTURE GOALS AMMA formation of member Safety committee to monitor new Governmental regulations and keep membership up to date on issues involving safety, hazardous material and material safety data sheet (MSDS) issues. AMMA representation at upcoming Conferences and Symposium : ASNE / Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division Intelligent Ship Symposium ASNE Day 2007 ASNE Fleet Maintenance Symposium AMMA training for member employees in the formulation and presentation of Quality Workbooks, Level of Awareness in Alteration Installation and instituting Lean Processes into Alterations. Slide11: AMMA FUTURE GOALS AMMA Quality Committee working with Mid Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center Quality on the acceptance of welder qualifications being transferred among member organizations AMMA members and leadership will continue to bring to the attention of our Governmental representatives our lack of available tradesmen, hazardous material issues, OSHA regulations, tax burdens and necessary projected workload allowing financing for modernization of our facilities. AMMA is working hard to develop, install and test the necessary technological modernization to make ours the absolute best supported NAVY in the world.
