The Digital Airworthiness Certification: Toward a Digital ASIP/PSIP
The Digital Certification Keystone Panel Objective:

As the DoD and USG usher in a new digital reality, digital transformation of tasks and processes leading to airworthiness certification is a key opportunity area. The breadth, depth, and full-lifecycle impact of airworthiness certification makes it fertile ground for applying digital methodologies to realize value. Since the USAF Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP) and Propulsion Structural Integrity Program (PSIP) establish requirements for the development, production, structural certification, modification, acquisition, and sustainment of USAF aircraft & propulsion systems, both too should be re-examined, and updated as required, in order to address technological advance and changing defense acquisition strategies. The DoD Digital Engineering strategy requires migration to model-based, digitally connected, accelerated processes during all phases of aircraft life cycle: design, manufacture, test and O&M. To this end, possible changes to the current ASIP & PSIP processes should include: explicit requirements for model-based engineering (MBE), explicit requirements for digital connectivity (digital thread), explicit requirements for product data management (PDM), explicit requirements for product lifecycle management (PLM), and explicit identification of digital deliverables / products (both models and data). In this Keystone Panel session, key stakeholders across industry & government will provide their thoughts on the potential digital transformation of airworthiness certification leveraging the ASIP / PSIP process as an initial pathfinder to begin the journey.
