Case study: S1000D for the Swedish Armed Forces’ Amphibious Battalion
Accurate, complete, boat-specific and easily accessible technical information for vessels and boats not only enhances safety and accessibility, but also reduces the total lifecycle cost. SSPA has written a case study describing a recently finished S1000D project for the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration. The case study describes our work from start to finish, including pre-history, challenges, project lessons and visions for the future.
To maintain technical publications for a large fleet of combat boats and light support vessels is a major challenge. The boats and vessels differ not only in terms of series and versions within each class, but also with respect to ongoing life extensions, rapid reconfigurations for missions abroad and changes due to technical orders. SSPA’s experts are assisting the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) in a variety of projects by providing information analysis, conversion, restructuring, revision and quality assurance and share their knowledge and findings in this case study:
- We hope that our S1000D projects for FMV will add significant value in a wide range of areas, for example reduced lifecycle costs through the provision of full, accurate, readily available and updatable technical information, says Jenny Jansson, Project Manager, and Mats Broberg, S1000D Information Manager at SSPA.
