Fleet Readiness Center Southwest (FRCSW), IT Division supports all Naval Aircraft production and remanufacturing efforts, as well as the various sub entities supporting these efforts such as Engineering, Supply & Logistics, and operations, as well as reporting to COMNAVAIRFOR and NAVAIR.

Project Description

COMFRC has been tasked to standardize business practices and IT solutions across FRC’s nationwide. As part of this on-going requirement, FRCSW has taken the leadership role not only in proof-of-concept but developing the process and reports for BI deployment across the Naval Aviation Enterprise (NAE). This over-arching umbrella of support includes developing, modifying and maintaining various Business Intelligence Universes and Reports used to support, manage, and provide intelligence for business decisions at the local FRC’s and across the Fleet Levels.

Some of these service items include: technical writing, data modeling, universe design; training; support services; and report creation & management.


FRCSW has since been awarded the prestigious role of Business Intelligence Center of Excellence (BICOE) through these efforts of improved reporting & analysis of AIRSPEED, ENG16, MRCR, MPR2, TRAT, Components, and other ‘on-the-bus’ NDMS application data.
