Abstract

The central goal of this topic is to develop the ability to quickly and efficiently determine, prioritize, and optimize maintenance efforts across both individual ships and the Fleet as a whole. We propose: to develop a web based application toolset that can be deployed within the Non-Tactical Data Processing System (NTDPS) architecture as part of the Distance Support Initiative Capture and manipulate maintenance data from ICAS Utilize Open Source statistical software to data mine maintenance data for trends, anomalies or other statistically significant events. Create Communities of Practices from collected maintenance data Feeding established readiness metrics and dashboards In constructing the end-to-end architecture, Progeny can leverage its Sea Warrior software development and integration efforts which have a similar network and data infrastructure and are used for ship-to-shore Knowledge Management and could be adapted for the Navy s Maintenance Management Domain. NTDPS is currently evaluating the NTDPS functionality for Surface Combatants via the Distance Support Program, and in conjunction with the PEO IWS Open Architecture (OA) initiative. Progeny proposes to develop this toolset in line with the SHIPMAIN goals that allows ship/fleet participation regarding the collection, aggregation/evaluation, and dissemination of maintenance planning data, information, and metrics.
