7/6/2018 Award-Winning NAVAIR PMA-261 3D Digital Transformation Project
  Anark has been involved in the Award-Winning NAVAIR PMA-261 3D Digital Transformation Project and continues to present this success story in 2018.

PMA-261 (CH-53K Heavy Lift Helicopter) is the first 3D Model Based platform at NAVAIR, along with being the first Navy Program Manager AIR (PMA), to instantiate a PLM system based on 3DEXPERIENCE. Programs such as PMA-261 receive OEM data in modern CAD/PLM formats that still require quality checking, re-structuring, Technical Data Package (TDP) validation and creation before it can be delivered to organizations that need to reuse this data.

Anark, ITI, Razorleaf Government Solutions and the NAVAIR PMA-261 program developed an automated system for the creation, validation and delivery of standard based TDPs to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and other NAVAIR based engineering teams based on MIL-STD-31000A to guide the structure of these packages for future provisioning, cataloging and sustainment needs. This type of system is projected to save millions of dollars for a typical defense program.

Attendees of this overview obtain an understanding on the architecture, operation and the projected benefits and how such an automated 3D TDP publishing and validation system could be applicable to other defense and commercial programs with varying CAD and PLM requirements to achieve comparable ROI and meet modern data delivery requirements.

Anark has been involved in co-presenting this overview in 2018 at the NIST MBE Summit plus the Community of Experts(COE) event and have plans to continue at GPDIS and DMC.
