STAGE simulates aspects of Diagnostic, PHM and ISHM Engineering, showing the support capabilities of a System during its useful lifetime. Many types of analysis can be performed on STAGE, including Testability, System Reliability & Mission Success, Sustainability, and Logistics Resource Allocations.
STAGE provides the capability to conduct “trades” based on diagnostic design characteristics, maintenance concepts, logistics footprints, repair levels, etc. Each trade can be used to examine the impact of the design’s diagnostic capability in terms of its strengths and weaknesses over any sustainment lifecycle(s).
The STAGE user interface is straight forward and very user friendly. The interface is shown below along with the results of several simulations. Each chart generated in the STAGE simulation also has a corresponding calculation report and summary report which are also shown below.
