NCMS Project #: 142153
Problem: Time dependent competition for resources, to include money, people, and equipment, across known and unknown demands creates a complex decision environment for leaders and operators of large private and public sector organizations. The technology gap associated with bringing together disparate data, automated workflow, and intelligent predictive analytics results in higher product costs, job uncertainty, and puts American Industry at risk against our near peer competitors potentially impacting the U.S. economy. Integrating and correlating large amounts of disparate and latent data for use across specific applications in near real time is needed to ensure proper maintenance and sustainment of business operations in today’s unpredictable environment.
Benefit: This initiative will bring together disparate data, provide for automated workflow, and will demonstrate decision support applications that will enable larger organizations to move from reactive to predictive decision-making regarding resourcing of equipment, spare parts, manpower (hiring) and other maintenance-centric functions. Lessons learned will be applicable across a wide variety of other Services, and commercial entities who are tasked with maintenance and sustainment of fleets and operations.
Solution/Approach: Phase III will expand on the Phase I and II efforts through a more in-depth investigation of the enterprise cloud architectures required to support the initial work and will document means and methods to facilitate technology transition to other Services and organizations. This initiative will assess and demonstrate the impact of a technology enabled integrated decision support platform on maintenance and sustainment of current and future commercial and warfighting operations.
