The Navy's Ship Support Improvement Project is designed to analyze and develop a maintenance system for all Navy surface ship classes. Concepts are being developed to bring about an early improvement in the ships' material condition, extend the operational use of ships, and improve material readiness. The project encompasses four major programs: (1) Guided Missile Frigate Class Support; (2) Engineered Operating Cycles; (3) Intermediate Maintenance Activity Upgrade; and (4) Maintenance System Development. The total cost of the project for fiscal years 1977 to 1983 is an estimated $644 million.
