In recent years the management of Navy maintenance and material resources has been lagging behind technological progress. Decision makers have been unable to obtain the information necessary to exercise proper control over operational requirements, and the existing maintenance organization could not provide answers to questions concerning systems readiness in relation to manpower, material, and time expenditures. A new program, the Standard Navy Maintenance Management System (SNMMS), was designed to improve overall readiness. Data used in this study was gathered from Navy, Air Force, and management sources. Contemporary techniques were synthesized and compared to those being used within SNMMS. The "3M System" is a highly desirable improvement in Navy maintenance. Although a few fundamental weaknesses do exist, a commendable level of total systems analysis was achieved during its development stage.
