Customer Insight: Navy Acquisition Requirements for Training Transformation (ARTT) Project
Engineering data living in a Project Lifecycle Management (PLM) system is the foundation on which systems are built. It follows that the same data should be leveraged when building training requirements, curriculum, and immersive learning environments for those systems.
The engineering data is subject to constant change driven by rapid technology growth and mission requirements. Historically, technical training data has always existed in disconnected environments, separate from all this key product information. This means that the versions of systems taught in the classroom lag behind the most current versions of equipment in the field.
The Navy’s Acquisition Requirements for Training Transformation (ARTT) project is taking military training data management to the next level, and GPSL is part of the expert team of vendors working on this exciting project.
The project integrates multiple data standards and systems to create a digital thread from the engineering source data down to the training artifacts delivered in the classroom. In that thread, the maintenance task analysis is used as the authoritative source for learning objectives, curriculum, and technical manuals.
Connecting and coordinating so many disparate data sources has presented GPSL with unique challenges and our team have used their collective experience and knowledge to overcome these.
We are incredibly proud to be involved in this project, but why is it so important, and what does the future look like for the project?
