Operational Modeling and Data Integration for Management and Design
Increasing focus on managing the performance of systems is driven by the relentless need to improve efficiency and save cost, by new safety management regulation and by growing interest from manufacturers in design for operability. Both the design of operational systems and the management of those systems depend on having a model of how such systems work. Such a model should be supported by operational data.
A new framework for modeling operational systems in aviation links operational models to smarter data integration in a framework of reports that support better management of risk in the operation, organizational change and improvement, and better design capabilities.
A common framework of modeling and analysis can address the convergent needs of research, system design, management and regulation to have an integrated, rich, evidence-driven understanding of complex operational systems.
