Transformation in Maintenance and Repair (XFMR)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The proposed effort will provide the technologies needed to support a transformation in maintenance and repair (XFMR, pronounced "Transformer") toward a warrior-centric sustainment (WCS) enterprise. WCS is the delivery and improvement of ready assets and sustained support to warfighters, valued according to their needs as they see them. The basic tenets of WCS require: ¿ Data realism, enabled through the capture and visibility of current and anticipated future events, both at the shop floor level and across sustainment system elements. ¿ Responsiveness, enabled through dynamic revision/prediction of resource requirements and schedules in response to changing conditions and requirements. ¿ Communication with and satisfaction of the customer, enabled through alignment with warfighter goals and metrics. The XFMR effort will support this transformation by providing methods and tools for dynamic dispatch planning and scheduling support, shop floor event capture, change impact assessment, back shop support coordination and management, and enhanced customer collaboration in sustainment operations.
