Compliance is a matter of special importance for industries involved in defence supply, but almost no industry should ignore the issue compliance.

 

Where trade a cross boarders is a clear reason for compliance, transport of materials and products which are not traded easily can be forgotten. But the need of compliance to regulations and laws are the same.

Internet of Things Enables Continuing Processes

End-to-end processes

Connecting materiel to cloud – internet – creates new opportunities for an efficient production – and a changed security issue. Monitoring, controlling and effectivity could e.g. develop materiel management processes, when material self-diagnostics spare part needs. The supplier develops maintenance profiles based on real time operational data.  Maintenance process takes actual condition into account. The result is an increased utilization rate of the capacity and reduced costs on maintenance and stocks.

 

Digitizing System

Integration of supplier, material system and defence utilizes data at the source and assures focus on decisive transactions.  Real time sensor indications subsidies maintenance plans on everything from wear to actual environmental conditions for spare part needs. Data utilization is proactive and dynamic in the business processes.

Prerequisites are data flow the individual systems is balanced and information is accessible.

 

Change Management

Converting work routines and organizing everything from logistics to maintenance and master data management is complex and requires a more general perspective. Replacing wear parts based on sensor indication rather than expectation  means fewer but possible more complex replacements. The requirement for the operator is increased and necessitates new procedures and rules.
