Project Announcement: Leveraging Data Analytics to Support Maintenance and Sustainment Activities – Phase II

The US Department of Defense is partnering with industry and academia on a multiphase CTMA initiative to foster the use of commercially available IT applications, systems, and best practices where it is suitable within large complex organizations and integrate them with specialized IT systems and processes.

Phase I exposed the overwhelming number of opportunities that exist to revolutionize sustainment for the large, complex global organizations dealing with Big Data Analytics challenges. The current sustainment system functions, but it still requires tremendous manual effort to achieve only marginally effective results. The operating environment is plagued with disconnected support sites, aging infrastructure, outdated supporting systems/technologies and no global visibility.

The overall objective of Phase II is to further integrate the vast array of datasets available to Operations and Maintenance personnel to enhance decision-making at all levels. By expanding the demonstrations and continuing to integrate this information into single-source systems, leadership at all levels will have the ability to collaborate more effectively to meet operational requirements.

Expected outcomes from this phase include ensuring action centers drive overall optimization of sustainment, provide for an integrated IT infrastructure, ensure Total Asset Visibility encompassing the entire system, embrace advanced data analytics and modeling, ensure the integration of supply chain with maintenance to align with flight line demand, provide for a dynamic maintenance environment that improves man-hour efficiency, reduce aircraft down time and material costs, drives an effective and agile utilization of workforce and lastly will truly provide financial alignment which enables more effective resource allocation.
