Abstract:

Our vision for Automated Work Package generation is the innovative combination of the in-the-moment gathering of the proper data, information and knowledge as well as the proper presentation of that data in a useful and meaningful way that helps the maintainer accomplish a job. The need is for the convergence of many different sources of data and information in an iterative process. It begins with a problem on, or planned maintenance for, a system or sub system. If there is a fault being generated from Equipment Health Management (or the Mission Readiness Support System), maintenance decision support will determine what action should be taken. There is then the need to understand the availability of resources and to schedule those resources. Once it is understood what is to be done, when, where (ship or shore) and by whom, the proper set of information can be structured for use in the maintenance execution. Work Package generation takes into account the need, available resources, the data and the ability to assemble everything into a package (or display) for the maintainer. The work package is, in essence, the data and information displayed in the moment of need based upon the context of the situation.
