In order to realize the benefits of Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) within the aerospace and defense industry there is a need to address five critical elements of data interoperability within and across the aircraft maintenance ecosystem, namely • Approach • Trust • Context • Value • Security In Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) data interoperability is the ability of different authorized components, systems, IT, software, applications and organizations to securely communicate, exchange data, interpret data, use the information and derive consistent insight from the data that has been exchanged to derive value.
At present the rate of development of data management and sensing technology is very high. Emergent technologies such as Big Data, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) and forth generation manufacturing means data interoperability will be in a continuous state of flux for some time. The purpose of this document is to outline the recommended approac,h to adopt , manage and develop data interoperability. With the number of stakeholders involved and the amount of data sharing required, there is a clear need for data interoperability to support the maintenance, logistics, operation and engineering analysis. This document may require frequent updating to ensure the latest knowledge is incorporated.
