John Sofia to Present at ASNE Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium
John Sofia, Integrated Logistics System Program Manager at Life Cycle Engineering, will co-present a session with Mark Williams, NAVSEA 06C, Director for Commonality, at the American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium (FMMS) in San Diego, California.
The session, titled “Minimizing Systems Variation to Enhance Configuration Management Mission Capabilities, Safety, and Total Ownership Cost” will take place on Friday, August 9th at 10:30 AM.
During the presentation, John will discuss the impact of variation on ship systems and their impact on systems configuration and configuration management. He’ll also discuss an integrated systems-level methodology to reduce variation (enhance commonality), streamline the supply chain, outline the benefits to mission capabilities, safety, system selection decisions, and Total Ownership Cost. Finally, the speakers will make recommendations regarding options for implementation of variation reduction principles across product lines that support enhancing mission capabilities, safety, system selection decisions, and Total Ownership Cost.
