Abstract:

Condition Based Maintenance CBM involves performing preventive maintenance actions based on evidence of need, rather than more traditional usage or time schedules. This report presents interim results from a CBM Technology Impact study that aims to identify the key drivers and factors that need to be understood for CBM to be effective in the military Land domain. Following a literature review and a first round of Subject Matter Expert surveys, a causal impacts map has been established. This map considers the impact of the required enablers of a CBM capability and the likely outcomes of adoption. In addition, the map captures economic and temporal considerations, and impacts on stakeholder groups and Fundamental Inputs to Capability categories. This map will be further refined and analysed as the study progresses. The study outcomes will inform capability acquisition projects and collaborative research within The Technical Cooperation Program. Ultimately this study will form a basis for a value proposition framework to assess the extent to which CBM should be adopted within Land materiel maintenance.
