Project Announcement: Integrating Digital Logbook Applications for Improved Maintenance Activities

The US Department of Defense is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to streamline and expand the equipment maintenance process by further developing the simplified Digital LogBook (DLB) design with an optimized user experience that will advance the state of the art of commercial data integration technologies and processes.

For an electronic technical logbook to function effectively it must be an extension of the core maintenance system and processes that organizations already have in place. Electronic technical logbook developers must build into the user experience an understanding of the vehicle cab, flight deck, supply transfers or other operating environments. Many truckers and pilots are already using enroute apps, so an electronic technical logbook should look and feel like an extension of those. The optimal solution will also integrate into a Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) Program which is a very effective methodology used to identify all possible causes that can lead to failure in a system using cause-and-effect relationships.

Using advanced engineering and software development methods, this DLB solution will provide operators and maintainers real-time access to technical manuals, on-board sensors and diagnostics data, and data analysis tools that interface direct into core maintenance systems.
