Project Announcement: Redesigned Platform Maintenance Process Solution for Enhancing Serviceability

The US Department of Defense is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to provide a comprehensive overview of the integration of a digital thread to address the design for sustainment concept as applied to a maintenance platform tool to enhance the serviceability of LRUs in aerospace and automotive systems.

A significant problem for both aerospace and automotive industries are the complex and time-consuming nature of maintenance and servicing which often involves limited access, unclear documentation, and the absence of real-time data. To address these issues, this initiative will collaboratively integrate industry participant digital thread technologies to demonstrate how real-time data sharing, collaboration, and analysis can result in improved serviceability for LRUs.

The primary objectives of this effort include:

  • Improving maintenance efficiency by designing LRUs with enhanced serviceability considerations.
  • Providing real-time access to up-to-date documentation and training materials for maintenance personnel.
  • Integrating the industry participant technologies to enable data sharing and collaboration across the product lifecycle.
