Lack of strong central direction and inconsistent policy execution by all levels have led to a number of problems in the implementation of component modifications in Navy aircraft. The problems dealt with in this study are confined to the areas of replacement procedures for installed components, implementation schedule, inventory support (spares, piece parts), and modification funding. The results of these problems have been excessive disruption of aircraft readiness and inefficient use of resources. Recommendations are proposed to improve component replacement procedures, retain some standardization during the change process, improve spares inventory support, and clarify funding responsibilities.
