Abstract : This paper documents the activities and results of a Joint Service Integrated Diagnostics Workshop hosted by IDA on August 8, 1996, and provides an IDA study team's analyses of workshop results. Workshop participants included representatives from the technology development, acquisition, and support functional areas of the Services (Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines). The objectives of the workshop were to increase awareness of integrated diagnostics application benefits, identify weapon system support problems where a better integrated diagnostic approach could be applied, propose cross-cutting integrated diagnostics opportunities, and begin discussions on the opportunities of applying open or non-proprietary architectures to integrated diagnostics. The IDA study team developed overall findings and observations. These, in turn, were the basis of the IDA recommendation that DOD should conduct a two-phase study and demonstration activity to establish an integrated diagnostics open system architecture. Such a recommendation stood out as possessing the greatest potential benefits.
