Naval Aviator Production Process Improvement
BASIS FOR MEASUREMENT
Pre-Primary Pre-load - NFO
Measurement Definition: The Cycle Time from the time a NFO student
graduates from API until the student starts Primary Class.
CT = (Beginning Students on Hand + Ending Students on Hand)/2
Beginning Students On Hand = Number of NFO students in the Pre-Primary
Pre-load at the beginning of the period - including the Post-API pool.
The student data should exclude those students who are leaving the
aviation-training track and being transferred to other areas.
Ending Students On Hand = Number of NFO students in the Pre-Primary
Pre-load at the end of the period - including the Post-API pool. The
student data should exclude those students who are leaving the
aviation-training track and being transferred to other areas. Number
should = (Beginning Students on Hand + Ins)-(Outs + Attrites)
Attrites = Number of students which do not continue training or
successfully complete training and are eliminated IAW CNATRAINST
1500.4F, as of the date of assignment of the appropriate attrite code.
Ins = Number of NFO students graduated from API continuing into the
Outs = Number of NFO students starting Primary Class.
