Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, a unit of Lockheed Martin, has orders to produce more than 3,000 F-35 fighter jets, so the company set an aggressive manufacturing goal to build one F-35 every day. IT supports that goal by keeping critical engineering and manufacturing applications running at peak performance, fast-tracking problem diagnosis, and minimizing downtime by providing data on 1,500 applications and their underlying infrastructure.
IT is integrating BMC Configuration Management Database, BMC Discovery, and TrueSight Operations Management (formerly ProactiveNet) with its current business service management solutions, which already include Remedy IT Service Management Suite and BladeLogic Server Automation (now called TrueSight Server Automation). With full visibility into applications, infrastructure, and their dependencies, troubleshooting is faster, application management is simpler, and automated performance monitoring is becoming a reality.
With BMC CMDB and Discovery, the staff understands the interactions across applications and infrastructure, allowing them to maintain application performance and uptime at the levels required for the one-fighter-a-day manufacturing target.
- Detailed data accelerates mean-time-to-repair (MTTR), so it reduces the risk of outages and keeps the manufacturing line running.
- CMDB service modeling eliminates manual building and maintenance of architectural models, saving hours of staff time.
- With direct feed from the CMDB into an architectural modeling tool, system architects can run reports and queries to better understand architectural patterns.
- The new data-driven approach provides a foundation for proactive application management, while integration and monitoring empower the staff to meet service level agreements.
“Everything ties back to the fact that the people who support the business have to be aware of what systems are out there and what those systems are doing. The BMC solutions are providing that awareness.”— Shridhar Sreekanth, Enterprise Architect, Lockheed Martin
