Logistics System Upgrade for F-35s

Logistics System Upgrade for F-35s 20 March, 2018

A joint team consisting of Pratt & Whitney, Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce and the F-35 Joint Program Office (JPO) subject matter experts successfully completed the rollout of a major upgrade to the F-35’s fleet management system. 

All F-35 operational bases around the globe were upgraded with the latest version of the Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS version, which now integrates Pratt & Whitney’s F135 propulsion system for the first time. 

According to a press release by Pratt & Whitney, This new release of ALIS automates the tracking of life-limited propulsion parts, manages squadron maintenance requirements with enhanced supply chain features and enables enhanced fault isolation, diagnostics & health trending to streamline resource management during home or deployed operations. As a result of this upgrade, the men and women that support the F-35 can now manage a wide spectrum of logistics for the aircraft - including propulsion - from a single logistics system, eliminating much of the manual planning that was previously required with multiple maintenance systems.
