Project Announcement: Digital Analysis for Modernization of Enterprise Industrial Facilities

The U.S. Navy is partnering with industry and academia to create a digital model of a Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) industrial depot. In this instance the initiative is focused on the four naval shipyards, however, the methodology created could directly apply to other military maintenance facilities. A digital twin or virtual model of the availabilities of the shipyards in their “as-is” condition will be completed. Based on the “as-is” model, a future state optimized model can be evaluated to inform future decision making.
