Project Announcement: Enterprise Equipment and Technology Analysis

The US Navy is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to create a stochastic, equipment-level digital model of legacy facilities, depots and shipyard maintenance and sustainment processes supporting the transition to industry 4.0.  Building upon successes of previous efforts, the objective of this initiative is to create stochastic digital models of shop repair processes in a depot environment. Moreover, it will model at a detailed equipment level in the proper sequence under the resource constrained environment described by the personnel, time, space, equipment, material, repair process and travel, with each shipyard undertaking multiple ship availabilities simultaneously.
