D422 Obsolescence is looking for motivated individual to support execution of the obsolescence management plan for both VIRGINIA and COLUMBIA CLASS. The goal of Obsolescence Management is to pro-actively manage and mitigate CFE obsolescence to maintain construction cost and schedule, as well as to support the lifecycle sustainment of CFE by working with the DMSMS community. Obsolescence, as defined by VIRGINIA and COLUMBIA ship specifications, is when a part is no longer in production, not maintainable through sparing, or no longer commercially supported or available. D422 has an obligation to monitor, validate, notify, and support the technical mitigation of potential CFE obsolescence issues. Mitigation steps (while, prioritizing the immediate construction need) should maintain an enterprise approach to mitigate risk to all platforms, regardless of lifecycle phase. D422 is responsible for soliciting all relevant information applicable to an obsolescence issue and consolidating it in a central database for tracking and reporting.


The individual selected for this position will be accountable for managing obsolescence on specific CFE submarine systems assigned to them.
