maintenance, modernization, and support of shipboard
An item is considered configuration-worthy if
1. It requires any one of the following elements of
logistics support: supply support, test equipment
requirements, technical manuals and repair
standards, Planned Maintenance System actions
Configuration information (for example,
nameplate data, technical characteristics data,
component drawing) is required to support any
level of maintenance (organizational,
intermediate, or depot), and modernization
(planning and execution).
3. It is needed to fully describe the functional
hierarchy of the ship.
Within NAVSEA TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION
9090-700 series, which governs SCLSIS, ship
configuration identification and data controls are
divided into four Ievels of detail, kept as follows:
1. Ship Level Configuration. The Planning Yard
maintains ship level configuration information
with general arrangement drawings and various
ship level records such as weight and stability
2. System Level Configuration. The Planning Yard
maintains system level configuration
information with system selected record
drawings and configuration control drawings.
3. Component Level Configuration. The SPCC
maintains component level configuration data,
along with ship and system level configuration
data in the SCLSI database.
4. Parts Level Configuration. The Life Cycle
Manager (LCM) and the SPCC maintain parts
level configuration data in the Equipment File of
Validation and Audits
Validations and audits are basically inventories and
are grouped into several basic categories. Each
validation or audit may require various amounts of effort
and time to complete. The basic validations and audit
1. Baseline Validation. An inventory process that
compares, by type and serial number, what
equipment is on board a ship with what supply
documents indicate should be on board the ship.
The purpose of the validation is to establish a
data baseline against which future inventories
and equipment changes can be compared. The
baseline data accounts for original equipment
configurations, as well as alterations. Baseline
Validations are conducted for the first ships of a
class and are used to produce the ship Class
Standard Data Base (CSDB). Configurations for
future ships of the class are based on the CSDB.
Audits. A sampling validation performed to
ensure that configuration and logistics data in
the SCLSI database is accurate.
Correction Validation. An inventory conducted
on items flagged during a previous audit because
of some identification or records problem. This
includes follow-on Clarification Audits to
identify further validation candidates needed to
update the database.
Installation Validation. Verifies the
cofiguration and logistics data being reported
for new configuration item installations.
As a supervisor, you must remember to submit the
proper 3-M documentation to the TYCOM when
changes in the configuration of your shop equipment
occur. This is the only way that the Configuration Data
Manager will know to put the information on the
SCLSI76 database. If the information is not on the
database, you will not get the parts support you need to
ensure proper repairs.
Inspections of electronic equipment and digital data
equipment systems are made at least once during each
ships training cycle and at other times when necessary.
These inspections determine the state of readiness of
equipment and compare its condition with a previously
established condition to detect deterioration. They also
help determine the readiness of equipment after it has
been installed, overhauled, repaired, or altered.
INSURV inspections are conducted by the Board of
Inspection and Survey to determine the material readiness
of the ships equipment and systems. Any discrepancies or
deficiencies discovered by the INSURV inspection team
are documented on 4790/2K work requests. These work
requests are then used in planning an availability or
