When a part sensor generates data to tell us a particular part on an airplane is wearing and will need to be replaced, is that all we need to know?
The reality is that we need more information. Government entities need to address the maintenance of the aircraft in the most efficient and optimal manner in order to minimize impact on mission readiness. This requires more data that goes deeper!
Other information we need to know includes:
- Where is the airplane headed?
- What is the replacement part?
- Who is best equipped within that region to perform the repair?
- How quickly and at which location can we bring these assets together?
