TECHNICAL MANUAL MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (TMMP)
The Guide for User Maintenance of NAVSEA Technical Manuals, S0005-AA-GYD-030/TMMP, has been developed to assist technical manual users in interfacing with the NAVSEA Technical Manual Management Program (TMMP). It also provides specific information in the following areas:
How to identify what technical manuals are needed
How and from what activity to request technical manuals
How technical manual deficiencies are reported
How technical manual deficiency reports are processed
How to update (through changes or new publication) technical manuals
How to determine whether technical manuals are current
What must be done upon receipt of technical manuals in hard copy or microfiche form
TECHNICAL MANUAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBERING SYSTEM (TMINS)
Another publication you will need for operating a technical library is the Technical Manual Identification Numbering System (TMINS) Application Guide and Index, M0000-00-IDX-000/TMINS. This publication serves as the sole reference handbook for all component commands involved with the composition, construction, interpretation, or assignment of technical manuals or associated technical document identification numbers. This guide will help you understand how the TMINS numbers apply to the new publication numbering system.
COMBAT SYSTEMS READINESS
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Discuss the importance of a Combat System Readiness Review (CSRR).
Before deployment, a ship undergoes several different evolutions in preparation for that deployment. One of the more important processes is the performance of a Combat Systems Readiness Review (CSRR) or a Combat Systems Readiness Test (CSRT). As directed by the appropriate type commander, a CSRR is conducted aboard surface ships in the Atlantic Fleet, while Pacific Fleet surface ships receive a CSRT. Basically, the two programs are the same with only minor technical and administrative differences. For the purpose of explanation, the COMNAVSURFLANT CSRR procedures will be described in this text.
Primarily, the CSRR is conducted to assist ship's force in achieving the maximum level of combat systems readiness and efficiency attainable immediately before deployment. Additionally, the CSRR should assist ship's force personnel in correcting material problems and provide on-the-job training to improve mission self-sufficiency. The systems and subsystems evaluated (tested) during CSRR are listed in table 13-1. A CSRR is conducted approximately 60 to 120 days before a ship's deployment, and depending upon the class of ship being tested, requires 5 to 10 working days to complete. A CSRR on a Naval Reserve Force ship is conducted approximately 30 to 60 days before Refresher 'Mining (REFTRA).
An important part of the CSRR is the software review portion of the test. "Software," for the purposes of the CSRR, is defined as test equipment, technical documentation, and supply documentation. The software review phase may include performance of the following:
GPETESAT. A review of the ship's general- and special-purpose electronic test equipment, including calibration status.
Table 13-1.-Equipment Evaluated During CSRR
l PUBSAT. A comparison of the ship's publication inventory (including the latest changes and revisions) with the Publication Applicability List (PAL).
. LOGSAT. A review of the ship's COSAL, APLs/AELs, and selected repair parts.
l A review of configuration and field changes applicable to the equipment necessary to support performance of the required operability tests.
The software review is conducted by the appropriate NAVSEACEN before the functional equipment testing phase of the CSRR.
The operational testing portion of the CSRR is accomplished using current equipment PMS checks as well as any other existing equipment level tests that may be necessary.
At the conclusion of the CSRR, the type commander and any applicable addressees are notified of test results via the "Quick Look" message format. Additionally, all parties concerned are provided with a CSRR Detailed Discrepancy Report (fig. 13-3) and a CSRR Summary Report (fig. 13-4).
It is important that you become actively involved in an assigned CSRR/CSRT. It is an excellent means of identifying fictional and procedural deficiencies that may exist within your equipment or work centers. Detailed guidelines for CSRR/CSRT procedures are contained in COMNAVSURFLANT(PAC) INST 9093.1.
