OVERVIEW OF ISDP
ISDP was designed to gain insights into the performance and maintenance requirements of the 777 as it went into service. The concept was to electronically exchange airplane maintenance data, including component removal, repair, and shop teardown data that each company collected, and place it into a common database for all the participating companies to access and share.
After its initial implementation on the 777 program, operators, suppliers, and Boeing recognized the value of extending the ISDP to other airplane models and increasing the number of participating members (see fig. 1). Now more than 50 airlines and more than 30 suppliers participate in ISDP, providing data on all Boeing models. The program is available at no charge to all participating airlines and suppliers.
ISDP provides access to data only to authorized users within each member company. Each must sign a proprietary information agreement prior to participating in the program and accessing data. Each participating company has separate secure network access to the data and agrees to use the data for reliability purposes only. Views of data are tailored to the account type or actual user. Suppliers cannot view other suppliers' components. Airlines can view all other airline and supplier member data.
