TECHNICAL DATA / INTERACTIVE ELECTRONIC TECHNICAL MANUALS (IETM)
The development of technical data is an inherent part of the engineering design, development and manufacturing of products. The acquisition and management of technical data has become innate to the way the Department of Defense (DoD) acquires and manages weapon systems. New business practices that use digital methodologies and products have demonstrated cost savings, process improvements, and expanded capability for interoperability. DoD has expressed goals for an interoperable digital logistics product/technical data environment to improve warfighter support, and reduce the total costs to operate and maintain defense systems. IETMs, or Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals, provide dialog driven interaction with the user, guided diagnostic troubleshooting & fault isolation, and integration with training and other logistics support functions.
