Our impact is measured in how we equip clients with predictive models and decision tools to be more effective, efficient, and safe in their operations.

We employ data strategies to fuel condition-based maintenance models and customize dashboard tools so that clients are making data-driven decisions.  We are most acutely focused on these project goals in the Defense sector because our work directly impacts the men and women serving our country- the War Fighters.

Working with Defense oriented Data

A Freya project of note is the Readiness Dashboard that was developed for a Defense client.  The goal was to provide them with a Readiness Dashboard to improve their mission readiness and improve the success and safety of missions.

As you can imagine, the amount of data available on aircraft, ground vehicles, system faults, maintenance and parts is immense.  Further, this data was distributed across geography and disparate systems.  Some of the systems could not be integrated to allow for correlation of the data.  Data can be an asset, but it can very well be a liability too if you don’t take good data governance plan.  At the project launch, each organization was diligently focused on being ready to support a mission and the Mission Fighters; however, they were working in siloes.  To optimize the success of our project it was essential that all data sources are identified and categorized.  With a map of the data sources, we were able to develop a plan to store and provision the data to make it useable.

Developing a Readiness Solution

Freya Systems developed an application that harnesses the data and workflows from across organizations to provide a universal perspective and to create predictive reporting that enhances decision-making.  With a newly integrated data and systems strategy, the data can be analyzed and modeled to predict the needs of ground and air fleets as well as improve efficiencies in the process.

The team then focused on the specific measures from an operations and a total mission readiness perspective that would make the dashboard meaningful and drive actionable decisions. The key measures that were most important included supply chain, namely are the tools, equipment, and people where they need to be when they are needed.  Condition-based maintenance measures power predict modelling on part failure.  Finally, measures were defined the profiled the ground and air fleet’s health providing an overall picture of the organization’s readiness to support a mission.

The completed Readiness Dashboard provides predictive direction to the maintenance and repair organizations and fuels a condition-based maintenance program.  In predicting potential part failures or maintenance needs, the application improves fleet readiness, increases supply-chain efficiencies, and empowers the deployment of mission-critical resources.  The way that Freya Systems and the client measures its success is on how we improve the effectiveness and safety of the men and women serving our country- the War Fighters.
