Many leading-edge applications of digital analytics for lifecycle asset management of vessels have been undertaken or are underway in the military services. Additionally, a wide-range of technology companies, equipment vendors, and service contractors are promoting various applications for consideration. Over the next several years, advanced digital analytics promise to transform lifecycle asset management by: 1) Extracting value from legacy collections of structured and unstructured data related to asset conditions. 2) Developing/refining ongoing data collection strategies to support asset management decisions without overwhelming organizations in data collection and storage complexity and costs. 3) Providing meaningful results to inform key risk-based asset management decision processes with predictive insights over the lifecycle of vessel fleets.

Digital analytics holds the key to rapidly assess and increase understanding of current equipment condition, anomaly detection and correction, service life prediction, and mission risk management. The results will yield improved reliability, availability, maintainability, and supportability performance of critical systems and operational availability of vessels. We will be able to better optimize maintenance plans driven by actual need rather than time schedules and provide availability work plans that minimize discovery work that traditionally disrupts budgets, schedules, and operational schedules.

This paper will provide the following: 1) Specific hull, mechanical and electrical application case studies of using digital analytics for lifecycle asset management. 2) Key lessons learned that are common to digital analytics projects. 3) An overview of guidance published on SMART technology for ships to help ensure capability to support the future of data analytics and autonomy.
