Maintenance Performance Assessment
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
In order to meet reduced manning and cost goals, existing and future Navy ships are utilizing sensors and other automated technologies to monitor equipment health and provide accurate information to end users. Onboard future surface ships, it is envisioned that maintenance planning will be automated and maintenance procedures will be delivered to the technician in an electronic format on interactive media. With the reduced manning goals of these future ships, monitoring and control maintenance backlog will be critical to maintaining the material condition of the ship. In addition, poor maintenance performance can be precursor by similar problems associated with operating procedures, technical data, and training. The information required to determine if any of these problems exists, but without proper procedures and mechanisms for collecting the data and metrics to evaluate the data, these problems can remain hidden from visibility, especially in a reduced manning environment where crew members will be broadly trained and multi-tasked. This Phase I proposal will develop a concept design for an automated maintenance performance assessment capability that can be integrated into the automated maintenance environments of both DDX and LCS.
