Automated Generation of Maintenance Work Packages
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Maintenance related activities represent a substantial portion of the Total Ownership Costs of any system. A significant portion of the total maintenance expenditure can be attributed to both direct and indirect (hidden) costs associated with maintenance planning activities. Automation can play a key role in reducing these costs by minimizing the time currently spent by sailors in the identification of a maintenance action(s), correlating and presenting information necessary to perform a maintenance action(s) and by ensuring that all necessary resources e.g. tools, parts, etc. are available to the sailor. The central thrust of this SBIR proposal is to develop a concept to address technical data format and storage requirements as well as package delivery to a maintenance technician so that navy technicians can have automatically generated fault or failure specific maintenance work packages based upon data received by current and future shipboard equipment health management systems without human intervention in an open architecture environment.
