F/A-18-E/F Integrated Readiness Support Team
Program

Services Involved and Key Players
Under the F/A-18-E/F Integrated Readiness Support Team (FIRST) program, Boeing has authority to manage a total logistics support program for 850 components unique to the new Navy F/A-18-E/F Super Hornets entering the fleet. This responsibility includes meeting system demand requirements of operational sites, intermediate sites, and depot sites, as well as repairing or replacing all parts covered by the FIRST contract, using Navy, Boeing, and subcontractor sources to perform specific elements of the support services involved.1 The FIRST program delineates closely defined roles for the Navy and Boeing.2 For example:
Boeing and the Navy operate as a single management team for the FIRST program. Personnel from Boeing and the Navy staff a hierarchical set of integrated process teams (IPTs) relevant to a wide range of Super Hornet support activities.
The Navy gives Boeing planning data on its future operations.
The Navy provides organizational and intermediate maintenance.
