Abstract : The Navy Food Service Equipment Management Study is being conducted as part of the DoD Food and Nutrition Research, Development and Engineering Program as Task 2 of the Navy Food Service 2000 Project (Military Service Requirement N 95-14). This interim report covers the period from the start date, October 1992 through November 1994. The statement of requirement as submitted by the Navy is as follows: The need exists for an improved method for managing/replacing food service equipment for afloat vessels. Currently, shipboard personnel are responsible for evaluating the need to replace/upgrade equipment and arrange to have it changed out during a pierside availability period. This system adds to an already burdensome management problem for afloat activities and contributes to nonstandard and unauthorized equipment being installed aboard ships throughout the Navy. A cost/feasibility analysis needs to be conducted to assess potential total cost savings for the Navy by implementation of a standardized Phased Renovation Replacement Program (PRRP) which would be managed by all six Type Commanders.
