This report documents the results of a study sponsored by the Assistant Deputy Secretary of Defense for Logistics Reinvention and Modernization ADUSD LRM and the Joint Commanders Group for Communication and Electronics JCG-CE. An Architecture is proposed for Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals IETMs based on the technology, industry standards, and commercial software products being developed for the World Wide Web The objective of the DoD Study Effort is to create an IETM Architectural Framework, which fosters acquisition management policies, and procedures that guide and standardize IETM acquisition, management, and display. The scope of this study and the resultant Architecture is end-user interoperability that will enable maximum interoperability of Technical Information displayed and accessed by an enduser in meeting the needs of the Defense Logistics community in supporting the material readiness of the DoD forces serve as the basis for a formal DoD-wide adoption of the proposed approach in promulgating the required acquisition and field-support policy, to be based on a series of FY99 pilot-demonstration programs that will show the applicability and efficacy of the Architecture in supporting IETMs for a broad spectrum of candidate weapon systems of the Military Services.
