Abstract : This thesis examines Navy supply system support provided to the Naval shipyards. Maintenance Support Managers at Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) have indicated that Navy industrial activities desire NAVSUP to buy and issue material to meet the Required Delivery Date (RDD). Shipyard planning activities' material forecasting procedures and the entire requisition process were examined. A review was also conducted of efforts at the Ships Parts Control Center (SPCC) to ensure industrial requisitions met the RDD. The results of the review showed that the supply system cannot automatically match all forecasted requirements against the shipyard requisitions. In addition, shipyard planners are not aware of the UMMIPS time standards for requisition processing. One recommendation is for SPCC to increase the requisition match rate by expanding the number of possible ways to match industrial requisitions to the Pre-Planned Requirements (PPR). Another is to have shipyard Supply Departments conduct UMMIPS training sessions so that better RDD values are assigned by personnel involved with the requisition process.
