July 27, 2022 – The Program Executive Office for Tactical Aircraft Programs (PEO(T)) awarded a contract June 2022 to Decision Lens to sustain current readiness goals while cutting expenses.
In 2019 the Naval Aviation Enterprise successfully achieved readiness goals for the Super Hornet/Growler fleet to meet the SECDEF’s mission capable (MC) requirement for aircraft platforms and is now focused on cutting expenses while maintaining the established MC goals. These goals will need to be achieved without assuming any additional risk to their mission and achieving MC aircraft in the fleet.
To maintain readiness while rationalizing costs and realizing savings over time in its sustainment portfolio, the Navy sought out software that could assist them in achieving these goals.
Leveraging Decision Lens, PEO(T) program offices can more systematically evaluate and prioritize cost-saving initiatives associated with fleet maintenance across the enterprise. Relying on already developed criteria, input from experts across the department, and a consistent data framework the office will be able to prioritize requests while meeting its mission of maintaining readiness despite expense reduction.
Over time, programs integrating the Decision Lens technology into the existing program office process will introduce the capabilities to subordinate offices for a variety of additional use cases.
“We are very excited to have PEO(T) use our software to help manage the cost savings initiatives across the organization. Recent guidance from Department of Defense (DoD) advisory panels have called for a mandated portfolio management responsibility,” Decision Lens CEO John Saaty said. “This should serve as a blueprint to other organizations looking for ways to cut costs without compromising readiness.”
Stakeholders from across the naval enterprise will be affected by the efforts as savings will be used towards Unfunded Requirements (UFRs) allowing for investment in readiness across other parts of the naval enterprise.
