U.S. Navy Saves Millions with the Module Test and Repair (MTR) Program

The primary goal of the MTR Program is to save on cost through cost avoidance and reduce turn-around time from CCA diagnosis to repair. The goal has been more than successfully achieved and has become a model for other military installations looking to bring CCA repair in-house.

Cost Savings and Benefits of the 2M MTR Program

From 1 Apr. 1996 to 30 Jun 2019 Navy commands outfitted with MTR capabilities reported 223,227 repairs completed, which resulted in 13,638 CASREPS averted/corrected and $804.38M OPTAR cost avoidance.
