Business Opportunities

  • The VAS web server methods used for data access have been deprecated by the vendor (Siemens)
  • The PDM (TcEnterprise) system provides access to BOM information, and management of JT file data. PDM is planned to sunset by 2024
  • PDM has reached the practical limits of performance for nightly VAS updates, and will not scale to meet future F-35 Production Rates
  • The current report window of 5 hours cannot be extended due to the performance impact on interactive users and other reporting


  • Each data-elements replicated to NGV-TC is tagged with group privileges
  • Rapid generation and re-generation of PLMXML enabling fast rendering on NGV-TC instance of JT models
  • Continuous sync of changes (data and JTs) from Aerosource to NGV-TC instance
