Abstract:

The objective of this study was to investigate the viability of implementing Integrated Diagnostics incorporating Condition-Based Maintenance CBM for Ground Equipment used by the U. S. Marine Corps. The study reviewed the sources of Autonomic Logistics data. the data requirements. the timeliness or required pull of such data. its transmission means in garrison and the field, afloat and ashore, the availability of current or planned logistic systems to receive the data, the Decision Support Tools DSTs to transform data into necessary information by which timely and long term support decisions can be made as part of Total Ownership Cost TOC. and recommended standards for the Corps to apply across existing and planned end items regarding diagnostic sensor integration. The results of the study are presented in the final version of this report as a collection of templates that Program Managers for different items may use for initiating Autonomic Logistics and CBM for the platforms that they are responsible for.
