Current Readiness Sub-Teams


Marine Aviation Executive Readiness Board

Established in July 2007, the Marine Aviation Executive Review Board (MAERB) is the conduit by which Marine Aviation integrates with the Naval Aviation Enterprise and Current Readiness CFT.  The board provides an improved approach to managing integrated readiness for Marine Aviation by linking opportunities and focusing improvement initiatives to overall mission requirements.  The MAERB governs development of Marine Aviation readiness goals and metrics and assesses and shapes performance.

Readiness, Standards and Policy Team

The Readiness, Standards and Policy Team is responsible for managing aircraft standards and the governing documents for the CR CFT.

USN Metrics Configuration Control Board

The USN Metrics Configuration Control Board (MCCB) is comprised of members from each Current Readiness sub-team and respresentatives from the IRMT, TF CFT, and USMC Metrics Configuration Control Board. The USN MCCB reviews metrics change requests, develops and maintains relevant current readiness metrics through periodic evaluation of existing metrics and processes, and identifies requirements for new metrics linked to new or existing processes.

USMC Metrics Configuration Control Board

The USMC Metrics Configuration Control Board serves as the clearinghouse to the Readiness Leadership Team (RLT) by systematically reviewing all metrics to ensure effective incorporation into the Marine Aviation current readiness program.

Readiness Leadership Team

The RLT serves as a support and advisory organization for the MAERB and Type/Model/Series (T/M/S) Teams and as the primary driver for implementation of the Marine Aviation Current Readiness program.  

Type/Model/Series Teams

Type/Training Wing Commanders and Marine Air Group Commanding Officers are designated as T/M/S Leads and are responsible for managing their T/M/S Teams. Responsibilities include assessing readiness, goals achievement tracking and performance, value chain management (people, money, and stuff) to deliver cost-wise forces to the Fleet, and address action items to enhance effectiveness and efficiency in areas identified for improvement.

Carrier Readiness Team

The Carrier Readiness Team (CRT) is responsible for enabling NAE leaders to define and achieve aircraft carrier readiness standards and efficiently deliver them at the right time today and in the future, with definable risk. The CRT aims to efficiently achieve the readiness required of the nation's aircraft carrier fleet and drive results with integrated metrics to enable informed resourcing decisions. The CRT has two components:  the Life Cycle Management Group, and the Training & People Readiness Team. These components provide a framework to influence behavior and use a holistic approach to deliver aircraft carrier readiness by ensuring that the right peolpe are in the right positions, the crew is fully trained for the mission, and the equipment necessary for the mission is fully operational.

Air Launched Weapons Team

The Air Launched Weapons Team is responsible for coordinating assessment of air-launched weapons readiness, managing the NAE's air-launched weapons value chain (people, money, and stuff), identifying barriers to the delivery of cost-wise ready weapons and related systems to the fleet, and incorporating all air-launched weapons into the metrics reporting tools.

Engineering, Maintenance and Supply Chain Management

The Engineering, Maintenance and Supply Chain Management Team (EM&SCM) is responsible for sustaining the work of facilitating the results of Continuous Process Improvement to tackle end-to-end maintenance and supply chain processes. The focus is on efficiencies in all Integrated Logistics Support processes, with optimal reliability, cost, and cycle time criteria to meet established aircraft readiness entitlements. EM&SCM recommends policy changes and implements common, result-driven operational, logistics, maintenance manpower, and cost metrics as they apply to the NAE processes under their purview.
