Data Process Technologies proposes to use process modeling, value chain analysis and risk management procedures to help define, manage and develop aircraft carrier battle group (CVBG) interoperability testing processes. This work will provide certification team members with best practices and lessons learned guidance to enhance the CVBG certification process and streamline process activities used to reach critical decision points. Results will be standardized and promulgated using a centralized application, the Rational Unified Process (RUP). A software tool will be developed to help managers navigate the shoals of the certification process. In this manner, the combined knowledge can be used as a tool for risk assessment and mitigation, and to share the knowledge with others. In other words, the goal is to help managers define and share the activities that add value to their process, regardless of the role they play in battle group certification. Improved definition of activities will ensure that deployment critical interoperability milestones are met, while those activities adding little value can be deleted from the certification process. For those activities that have borderline value, risk management techniques can be applied to ensure the best bang for the certification "buck." This will help managers improve their understanding of risk from the holistic view of deploying a carrier battle group. The sharing of knowledge will help standardize the certification process. The net result will be faster, more reliable and complete certification methodologies. There are many opportunities to provide a complete process modeling, analysis, reengineering, risk management and knowledge management solution in the Navy, DoD, in Federal and state government and in the private sector. This need is anticipated to result in additional contracting opportunities for Data Process Technologies. Examples of Navy scenarios where this type of solution may prove beneficial include Administrative Material Inspections (ADMAT), Operational Readiness Evaluations (ORE), Operational Readiness Inspections (ORI), Operational Propulsion Plant Examinations (OPPE), Planned Maintenance System (PMS), Fast Cruises/Dock Trials; i.e. essentially any scenario where complex processes exist. Literature and anecdotal evidence suggest that highly complex tasks lead to an inability to perform them successfully.
