Increasing MRO Efficiency

Ways to better manage repair capability and capacity


The unprecedented growth in complexity across the defense industrial base has occurred due to various reasons ranging from increase in operations, restructuring, to acquisition and fielding of complex new weapon systems. These reasons along with the high involvement of commercial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service providers across the defense industrial base are major factors that have affected the effectiveness of organizations in coordinating resources across the defense industrial complex.

Increasing MRO Efficiency: Ways to better manage repair capability and capacity, Deloitte Consulting LLP’s latest point of view, examines the benefit of implementing a network-based approach to manage enterprise MRO capacity more efficiently and effectively. It focuses on a lack of common process and standard execution across the industry, and how creating unified command and control perspectives will help address complexity related underperformance. 

This report explores how:

  • Inefficient organizational design fosters underutilized capacity
  • Implementing a network-based approach integrates MRO operations and leverages the full capability and capacity of the entire network to meet mission requirements

In addition, it provides the details of a client case in which Deloitte helped the client on inferring that significant efficiencies could be derived by implementing a repair-based network approach to MRO.

Though enabled by technology, the network-based repair approach is process led. Accordingly, it has the potential to increase output and weapon system operational availability across the Department of Defense.
