The purpose of this thesis is to examine the integration of AIMDs Miramar and North Island, and NADEP North Island calibration laboratories. The expected benefits and weaknesses or problems resulting from integration are examined. The benefits analyzed include those in the areas of manpower, training, standards reduction, inventory reduction, streamlining facilities, and increased productivity. The problems analyzed include increased transportation costs, facilities modification costs, reduced military resiliency, potential negative impact on customer service, and issues related to sea/shore rotation, AIS, and the internal chain of command. The thesis also discusses Navy organizational structure and financial management policy, and the aspects of each that make it difficult to implement change. The thesis concludes that consolidation is feasible and there are scale economies to be achieved from consolidating the Intermediate and Depot level calibration laboratories at NAS North Island. However, the financial management and command and control issues must be solved before the benefits of Regional Maintenance can be realized.
