Surface Maintenance Engineering Planning Program (SURFMEPP)
Core Products

We manage the long-term maintenance requirements of surface ships with the following products:

  • Availability Analysis Study:  These written analyses are completed when an availability is proposed for cancellation or a shift beyond the technical or OPNAV programmed periodicity. A detailed review of maintenance history, current ship’s health and technical requirements is conducted to determine the risk associated with the availability proposal. The study is provided to the Type Commander (TYCOM) and Fleet staffs with notification to the Ship Design Manager (SDM).

  • Baseline Availability Work Package (BAWP): A BAWP consists of the repair, assessment, modernization and service tasks to support the Fleet Response Plan (FRP) maintenance cycle for each ship.

  • Change Management Documentation:   Deferral letters serve as the instrument to provide technical review and adjudication of mandatory technical requirements that have been requested, by the TYCOM, for deferral to a subsequent FRP maintenance cycle. The review determines the risk of deferral and provides a recommendation to the SDM and Technical Warrant Holder.

  • Class Maintenance Plan (CMP):  The CMP contains the repair and assessment tasks that are required to be performed for a class of ships in support of life cycle maintenance and material readiness.  

  • Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Availability Completion Study:  : The study is a review of the financial and technical requirements of a completed availability. The cost data and work items are reviewed to identify growth and new work to support future resourcing and planning of depot-level maintenance. The cost information is collated to validate that departure costs are correctly aligned to the original work item with corrections fed back into various historical maintenance databases.

  • Long Range Tank Planning Report (TPR): The TPR is a tank and void planning tool that provides a real-time comparison of the data recorded in Corrosion Control Information Management System (CCIMS) and the data loaded into the Navy Maintenance Material Management system. The TPR serves as a key planning tool for numerous SURFMEPP departments and divisions by offering planned tank and void next due dates, assessment results, and links to photographic evidence of degraded tank conditions.

  • Master Specification Catalog:   The Master Specification Catalog (MSC) is the repository of all Class Standard Work Templates (CSWT), Standard Work Templates and associated Independent Government Estimates.  Templates are used by Ship Repair activities to execute contracted depot-level maintenance.  Use of the MSC promotes standardization and planning product reuse to reduce costs and increase quality of contracted work.  SURFMEPP is designated as the MSC Maintenance Office and is responsible for the review and approval of all MSC changes.

  • Ship Sheet: The Ship Sheet documents labor and material cost associated with each ship’s CNO availability maintenance requirements.  It is developed by comparing the current condition of the ship against the TFP to determine required adjustments above or below the notional requirement.  

  • Surface Ship Engineered Operating Cycles Annual Report:  : The Surface Ship Engineered Operating Cycle (SSEOC) annual report is provided to the CNO, via NAVSEA, and summarizes the previous fiscal year technical requirement compliance and lists all OPNAV SSEOC reportable violations at the hull level. SSEOC tasks represent the most critical CMP assessments and other designated repairs.

  • Technical Foundation Papers:  The Technical Foundation Paper (TFP) is the notional maintenance plan for a ship from commissioning to decommissioning by identifying the maintenance required to meet the ESL.  The TFP provides the notional long range maintenance schedule that includes man-days, availability periodicity and availability duration for depot-level maintenance.
