Reliability-centered maintenance, an aircraft maintenance policy that limits routine maintenance in order to reduce costs and increase safety, was evaluated as it applied to the Navy's P-3 program.

Application of the new maintenance concept to the Navy's organizational and depot maintenance programs improved maintenance scheduling, reduced unnecessary work tasks, corrected task distribution between maintenance levels, and resulted in a generally more logical approach to the maintenance function. The Navy may not have achieved maximum benefits from the program because it needs better information systems with which to appraise maintenance programs. The Navy also needs to take specific actions to realize the maximum potential for savings.
