Supporting the Navy Modernization Process: Meeting Major Milestones Required for a Successful RMMCO Check-In

The Navy Modernization Process (NMP) was established in 2004. The NMP mission is to provide a disciplined process to deliver operational and technical modifications to the naval surface fleet in an operationally effective and cost-efficient way. It defines a standard methodology to plan, budget, engineer, and install timely, effective, and affordable shipboard improvements while maintaining configuration management and supportability. This process is web enabled via the Navy Data Environment, a secure database and user interface that supports the NMP for effective and efficient process management.

Meeting all Major Milestones for Regional Maintenance & Modernization Coordination Office (RMMCO)

Installing hardware or software on a military ship entails many steps, forms, qualifications and approvals before someone can actually board the ship to execute the work. Creating Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs) and developing Ship Change Documents (SCDs) requires significant knowledge and expertise in order to achieve a successful check-in to RMMCO and prevent issues that can occur with the Quality Assurance (QA) Audit.
