Wright-Patterson Air Force Base - Dayton, Ohio
Helping the U.S. Air Force acquire, modernize, and build better aircraft and defense systems
The Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, is the headquarters of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center—the single center responsible for total life cycle management covering all aircraft, engines, munitions, and electronic systems. One of six centers under Air Force Materiel Command, the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base provides holistic management of the procurement, maintenance, and manufacturing of battle-ready equipment for all Air Force missions.
To accelerate acquisition, enhance manufacturing efficiency, and improve readiness, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center awarded a $24.6 million indefinite-quantity contract to SGT for software and support enabling the Air Force to use a common digital enterprise to integrate data relied on for the acquisition and sustainment of critical assets trusted to fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace.
The product lifecycle management (PLM) solution selected, Siemens’ Teamcenter software, is a modern, adaptable PLM system that connects people and processes, across functional silos, with a digital thread for innovation. With the Teamcenter software suite of tools and capabilities, the Air Force is able to integrate a broad range of complex technical, design and sustainment data, resulting in lower costs through more predictable schedule and cost performance of its assets.
