Reusing Ship Product Model Data (2005-384)
- General Dynamics Electric Boat
NSRP ASE Investment: $48K
Previous NSRP projects have developed a data architecture for Integrated Shipbuilding Environment (ISE) information models, which have been used to exchange design, engineering and production data. A new international standard, S1000D, is emerging as the life cycle support data standard within both the shipbuilding and aerospace domains. The objectives of this project were to investigate and report on the use of the S1000D standard (for technical documentation, as well as product life cycle support data) and the feasibility of interfacing the ISE information models; propose the basis of an architecture to transfer ISE product data and PLCS data into S1000D standard format; and provide feedback to the S1000D standards body to ensure better integration. This project also represents the first step toward the integration of engineering and logistics data domains, as well as providing a common standard for ship and aircraft life cycle support needs. Without a well-engineered coordination of the PLCS, S1000D and ISE standards, new generations of systems will repeat the incompatibility issues of the past. The project team’s report concludes with recommendations for coordination among the emerging information standards.
