AbstractThe goal of Beacon's effort will be the creation of an Integrated Maintenance Management Decision-Support tool. The work accomplished here addresses not only the needs of DDG 1000 but also of other Navy programs and the broader marketplace. Our goal will be the development of the human-centric portion of maintenance decision making, combining maintenance requirements with people, logistics, cost and availability based on mission need. The technology that we envision is a maintenance decision, planning and support tool that fuses a massive flow of data from many systems such as CBM systems, Mission Readiness, Personnel Management Systems, Scheduling systems, Logistics, and task performance systems. These inputs are then analyzed and made available to the end user for a decision on the timing and deployment of maintenance resources whether onboard ship, ashore or through a blended approach where work is performed aboard ship with Distance Support from shore. Our goal is to turn data into useful information and, over time, into reusable knowledge. The software solution will be based upon a Service Oriented Architecture. It is anticipated that the planning functions will interface with any number of support systems, including equipment sensors, personnel and scheduling.
