Lorin Selby: Navy’s Predictive Maintenance Systems Must Enable Rapid Decision-Making

Jeff Brody

Rear Adm. Lorin Selby, chief engineer at the Naval Sea Systems Command, said at an American Society of Naval Engineers symposium that the Navy wants to deploy a sensor-based maintenance system, USNI News reported Monday

Selby told attendees that he wants to implement a way of generating software code to accelerate the decision-making process based on the Enterprise Remote Monitoring system’s predictive maintenance alerts for components such as engines, turbines and various hull, mechanical and electrical systems. He added that he wants to focus on developing apps to help visualize the performance data and provide information on required courses of action for identified maintenance issues.

The Navy should also deploy the DevOps methodology that the tech industry is currently implementing, according to Selby.

“They’re continually developing software, testing it, releasing it, deploying it. You operate with it some, you monitor it, you learn things from it, you go back and change again. And that’s a continuous process,” he said.
