Representatives from Carrier Team One (CT1) recently partnered with Norfolk Shipyard (NNSY), Puget Sound Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS & IMF) and Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to establish clear guidelines for Executability Assessments (EAs) for carrier availability throughout the enterprise.
The business alignment recently happened when Kendra Dildy, master of the cost analysis process and the CT1 availability work module, investigated the policies and guidance for AEs within the sharing network. knowledge (KSN) and discovered that the implementations differed within the company.
“EAs and Knowledge Market Agreements (KMAs) are tools that are used to ensure that we are communicating openly with our clients about the work in progress and whether certain work can be completed as requested,” said Kelly Souders, Director of the CT1 program. “One of the four business objectives of CT1 is to deliver carriers on time. To do this, we manage mature processes and ensure that they are implemented on our availability. When our tools in place are not working as they should and not everyone is aligned with the work at hand, we cannot meet these goals. Kendra noted this and intervened with representatives from other yards to find a solution.
Dildy worked with NAVSEA and representatives from NNSY and PSNS & IMF on developing an EA Summit so that all can be part of the way forward, providing input and finalizing a process that could be followed by all involved persons.
“We took a deep dive into the process and the advice, each providing best practices on what works in handling EAs,” Dildy said. “We took the attributes of past processes and these practices to develop a letter from scratch that would not only provide guidance to everyone, but also be easy to follow so anyone new to the processes could easily step in and be aligned. . The team at the top were determined to find a solution and worked hard every step of the way to achieve it. Everyone stepped in and helped make this business a success. ”
The tool is currently being finalized and CT1 has encouraged all who work with RAs and KSN to start using the new process. For more information, visit https://usff.navy.deps.mil/sites/cnal/CT1/SitePages/Home.aspx or https://www.facebook.com/CarrierTeam1/.
