The Navy’s current logistics data systems that provide configuration management, provisioning, readiness modeling, and technical data management support for ships and weapon systems are outdated. These systems are at the end of their useful life and no longer supportable. Combined with unacceptable sustainment costs, cybervulnerabilities, software obsolescence, rapidly changing/emerging technologies, lack of common data standards and interfaces, and outdated business processes, they greatly inhibit the ability to effectively and cohesively perform supply and maintenance functions. Increasing weapon system uptime while reducing support costs requires a digital transformation of Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) logistics. MBPS helps the information technology (IT) replacement effort to modernize NAVSEA’s configuration management, provisioning, readiness modeling, and technical data management logistics IT systems to enable advanced Warfighter readiness capabilities. The Navy maritime MBPS program will increase weapon system uptime and reduce support costs by providing the following: a decision support capability to relate resources ($) to readiness; a maintenance and supply resource optimization model to dynamically meet mission readiness requirements; management and delivery of accurate, integrated, and modern 3-D product data necessary to execute maintenance and supply actions on ships and submarines; and common standards, requirements, and acquisition approaches for product and technical data.
