John Sofia Life Cycle EngineeringApplication of Variance Reduction to Logistics EngineeringVariation of systems, sub systems and components impact Fleet readiness, availability and cost. The proliferation of variation in Fleet systems continues to hamper the Navy’s ability to shorten the supply chain and minimize our vulnerabilities to logistically sustain our deployed Fleet. This brief intends to discuss the issue and an opportunity to reduce variation within the constraints of the Navy’s supply system.
James V. JonesLogistics Management AssociatesThe New TA-STD 0017A – PSA on SteroidsThe soon to be released updated TA STD 0017A, Product Support Analysis (PSA), ushers in a new era of supportability engineering. The modifications to this standard reveal an enhanced opportunity for product design improvement and sustainment performance. This presentation focuses on providing a historical perspective as to why PSA is invaluable, a brief discussion of the changes, modifications, and additions to the new 0017A, and thoughts on the optimal implementation of the PSA process to achieve maximum benefit with the best ROI.
Vijay Chachra and Cameron BadgleyAndromeda Systems Inc.How the Digital thread is helping maximize operational availability by tying PSA with IoT/CBM+ to drive optimized maintenance planning and execution.Upping the ante on RCM driven conditioned based maintenance with IoT and AI. Showcase the seamless integration of supportability analysis data with maintenance planning and IoT driven maintenance execution.
Peter StuttardAspire Consulting LtdAddressing the Support Case, a UK MoD perspectiveThere are several standards which address the need for engineering ‘cases’ including the UK ILS Def Stan 00-600 which requires a “Supportability Case” to be generated. The Support Case is powerful, but underutilized, ILS tool. This presentation discusses the concept and the benefits it brings to a ILS programme.
