NDIA’s Logistics Division and Emerging Technologies Institute (ETI) convened experts from government, industry and academia to develop the outline for a pilot program. This program is intended to improve data sharing with an eye towards increased effectiveness and efficiency in one pilot area: Condition-Based Maintenance activities. Workshop participants came from traditional defense primes, nontraditional software and data analysis companies, maintenance service providers and customers of maintenance products and services. As such the group was able to access a variety of perspectives and experiences in shaping the pilot proposals. The workshop addressed a variety of technical and policy issues surrounding the use of data, including the importance of data sharing and data standards, but also relevant concerns associated with security and the handling of proprietary data.
This paper summarizes the workshop’s general findings and describes a set of specific actions that should be taken by the government, including the Congress, and industry to establish a set of high value, high impact pilot programs in data sharing to improve CBM+ initiatives in DoD. These proposed data sharing pilot activities could be established as a partnership between the Department of Defense and appropriate private sector components.
