Abstract : The goal of an engineered operating cycle (EOC) program is to effect an early improvement in the material condition of ships at an acceptable cost, while maintaining or increasing their operational availability during an extended operating cycle. In support of this goal, system engineering analyses (SEAs) are being conducted for various ship classes on selected mission-critical systems and subsystems that have historically exhibited relatively high maintenance burdens. This report documents the SEA for the forced draft blowers (FDBs) installed on AFS-1, AOE-1, and AOR-1 Class ships. The SEA is an analysis of the impact of historical preventive and corrective maintenance requirements that affect operational performance and maintenance programs of a ship system and the significance of these requirements to an EOC program. The report documents a recommended system maintenance policy and specific maintenance actions best suited to meeting EOC goals.
