QVISE engaged with Techno Marine, Poland, signed the contract for Integrated Logistics Support (IPS) development in March 2019, and commenced the project. This Project was completed in just over a year i.e. July 2020. The scope of the contract included:
Ship Fit Definition (SFD) Preparation
With the collaboration of Designer and Purchaser, QVISE experts prepared the SFD, for all the equipment fitted onboard, which facilitated the MAB boats in achieving its performance goals and mission. QVISE conducted an onboard physical audit after erection of the machinery to verify the equipment changes along with Serial Numbers, Location and Make / Model for each Item installed on each of the boats.
CM is divided into seven main categories i.e. Hull structure, Propulsion, Power Generation & Distribution, NAVAID & Communication, Auxiliaries, Outfitting & Furnishings and Armament. Complete As-built configuration of the boats were configured following the above categories in compliance with MIL-STD-973, MIL-HDBK-61A and SAE EIA 649-C. The Configuration Identifiers (ESWBS, Extended Ship Work Breakdown Structure) were in accordance with NAVSEA S9040-AA-IDX-010/SWBS 5D Volume I & II.
Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM)
We prepared 47 Equipment and System Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs) in accordance with MIL-STD-15071H and MIL-DTL-24784D while MIL-DTL-24784-4D for COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) Equipment and provided to PN for on-board and depot maintenance of Equipment and the MAB boats.
Maintenance Management System (MMS)
MMS of 47 equipment was prepared as per BR-1313 (Maintenance Management in Surface Ships) and required documents were prepared for Planning, Executing and Recording of Maintenance routines.
The parts inventory for these boats consisted of a cumulative 4200 distinct parts having various codes assigned as per US DoD instruction / NAVSUP P-488 COSAL Handbook. Onboard boats’ allowance i.e. COSAL (Co-Ordinated Shipboard Allowance List) was calculated for 90 days of continuous operation, whereas COSMAL (Co-Ordinated Shore-based Material Allowance List) for 3 years was also calculated as per the relevant provisions of forecasting. Accordingly, low and high levels of the store were also established as per boats’ usage. Furthermore, provided List of all recommended workshop machinery, equipment, tools and test benches to PN Dockyard. Moreover, supplied Training syllabi along with cost of BMT (Basic Military Training) for major equipment / system of Level 3 & 4 (4 being the Highest).
