Department of Energy (Department) policy requires the use of performance measures to assess the
efficiency of maintenance operations. The Department recommends that performance measures be
developed to evaluate progress toward meeting plant maintenance goals, and that deviations in expected
results be analyzed to identify root causes and reported to management for corrective action. The
objective of this audit was to determine whether Lockheed Martin Energy Systems (Lockheed Martin)
used performance measures to identify and correct inefficiencies in its maintenance program.
