Stage 2 projects include:

  • Development of an Army Maintenance Strategy by the end of November, improving Army’s ability to articulate its maintenance requirements and enhance effectiveness.
  • Development of an Activity Based Equipment Management model, concentrating on Bushmaster PMV (initially), leading to improved demand forecasting and resource efficiency.
  • Delivery of a Statement of Work for ASEME’s new Technical Trade Contract for Army.
  • Enhancement of Vulcan dashboards to include equipment demand data from ACMS to improve data-driven decision making by unit personnel.
  • Review of current M1A1 maintenance practices with recommendations to improve operational availability and realise Life of Type savings.
  • Productivity projects including LEAN and Productivity Enhancement Training to improve production and workshop effectiveness.

Plan CENTAUR Director General, BRIG Dave McGahey, said that Stage 2 projects will bring rapid and substantial benefits to Army and the broader maintenance system. “This new stage of the program represents the chance to deliver projects that will very quickly make an impact,” BRIG McGahey said The CENTAUR team welcomes your questions and comments.

He went on to say, “Projects such as the Army Maintenance Strategy and the Activity Based Equipment Management implementation will improve maintenance system effectiveness, while Productivity Enhancement Training early next year will train Combat Brigade personnel in immediate changes to improve their maintenance planning capability. We are firmly in the delivery phase of the program, and the CENTAUR team is keen to gain feedback from RAEME personnel – it’s the future of your profession and we need your input to get it right.” CENTAUR Stage 1 concluded in June and the new Stage was approved by the Army Resourcing and Capability Management Committee that month.
