While the creating of exceptional diagnostic savvy in the eXpress model is unmatched throughout industry, the natural next objective would be to somehow transfer that diagnostic savvy:
DSI has focused on design data interoperability for more than thirty years. We realized that, should programs or organizations make an investment into the creation of any data artifacts during the design development or the design sustainment lifecycle(s) they’re covered in either or both lifecycle(s)!
We understand that there’s an investment in generating a shared design data base within the design disciplines that, through ISDD, could be leveraged to serve more collaborative objectives in support of the development of the design, and then later during sustainment.
As the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe/Aerospace Industries Association (AIA/ASD) continues to evolve the proposed AIA/ASD S5000F Standard, we anticipate that any data generated within DSI’s Integrated Systems Diagnostic Design (ISDD) tools can facilitate the relevant areas and forms as described in the proposed standard.
Many of the ideas and concepts regarding the targeting of an “agile” maintenance strategy for System or the System of Systems (SoS) begin with the formalizing of a unified approach to collectively capture the functionality of the participating designs into a robust integrated systems’ design development and process. But this design development process must be able to fully assess not solely the top-down functional allocation Systems’ Design and Sustainment Requirements (Operational Availability, etc.) but also be fully positioned to assess and validate the functional and failure cause (root cause) propagation from the bottom-up.
Using the inherent power of Integrated Systems Diagnostic Design, or “ISDD”, the Expertise of the Diagnostic Design data is captured and vetted for accuracy and completeness within the eXpress diagnostic modeling process. As the functional and failure causes are propagated throughout the Design architecture during the Design Development process, the functional and failure interdependencies are also established and retained within the eXpress modeling process.
