dc.description.abstractThree quarters of the Naval Air Systems Command Metrology and Calibration (METCAL) budget is spent on Support Equipment with calibration intervals that are 12 months or less. These intervals are based on End-of-Period (EOP) operational reliability targets of 72% for non-critical General Purpose Test Equipment (GPTE) and 85% for critical Special Purpose Test Equipment (SPTE) . Over one-third of all Support Equipment are performing above their reliability targets, but are unnecessarily being inducted into calibration facilities due to maximum interval restrictions. With continued budget constraints, the Navy will be forced to adopt innovative measures to save costs, while not sacrificing readiness or safety. Based on our analysis, we conclude that by increasing the reliability targets, and interval restrictions, we will save the Navy over $1.2 million per year with a concomitant increase in the reliability of 46% of Naval Aviation's TAMS by 9.71%en_US
