Abstract:

We propose to design, prototype, and validate an advanced maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) based multi-echelon planning and analysis technology (ProPlan21). ProPlan21 will provide technology for rapid definition, creation, and editing of constraint based plans. This will enable advanced constraint-management-based plan analysis and plan execution for Depot management decision support across all production echelons. ProPlan21 will be a point-of-discovery planning environment with interactive plan critique/verification useful by all levels of MRO management for producing optimizing plans, schedules, situation responses, and process designs. Depot decision makers could rapidly specify, evaluate, compare and select the optimal process based on a quantitative analysis of the impact in both scheduled and surge-critical production scenarios. ProPlan21 provides this advanced planning and analysis support by delivering a state of the art intelligent process design repository driven by advanced constraint management and enabling existing MRO analysis tools. The phase I effort will define, design, validate, and prototype the ProPlan21 technology system using information culled from the KC-135 production echelons. The Phase II effort will implement the innovation, within the context of the MRO transformation, across actual OC-ALC depot production echelons and rapidly generalize and commercialize the research results for use in other multi-echelon diagnostic system domains.
