Results of MSG-3 analysis will identify potential solutions to repetitive failures discovered providing analysis of the maintenance data to improve forecasting of maintenance requirements. It will also provide recommendations to support E-8C fleet-wide reliability issues and implementation of maintenance transformation through MSG-3 philosophy.
According to Terri Walker-Spoonhour, Alion senior vice president, “Our JSTARS government customer and Alion have worked closely together to improve the sufficiency and efficiency of the existing maintenance program within the current maintenance construct. The goal of the MSG-3 maintenance program fleet wide is to increase aircraft availability and to reduce maintenance costs.” She went on to state that once MSG-3 is fully implemented, the Air Force can expect reliability gains of 20 percent, reduction in maintenance costs of 20 to 30 percent, and estimated Mission Capable and Aircraft Availability (MC & AA) rate increases of 10 to 35 percent, respectively.”
