Affordable availability provides a crucial edge for any product in today's aerospace market.
From research through to operations, competition-driven product evolution means that engineering excellence alone is no longer the differentiator it once was.
Our experienced team of engineers, analysts and managers offers whole-life Availability, Reliability and Maintainability (AR&M) and Supportability capability across all phases of the aerospace product life cycle. Our Systems Assurance services cover research, design and development, and our Asset Optimisation services cover products and platforms already in service.
- Research and Technology: We can help manage your aerospace technology portfolio, giving your products the best chance of acceptance by your end customer, whether they be a Tier 1 supplier, an airframe/powerplant manufacturer, or an airline. We can help you to provide "winners" from an operational and cost perspective, and tailor your Technology Readiness Level (TRL) criteria to build AR&M and Supportability into your future products from the outset. Our consultants have worked with a broad spectrum of technologies including Prognostics, More Electric Aircraft, and all-composite structures.
- Design for AR&M: From early concept through to the delivered product, we can provide fully customisable design support, from reliability predictions on a single part up to total AR&M programme ownership, tailored to your budget and timescales. Our analysis portfolio includes FMECA, Fault Tree Analysis, and Operational Reliability and Direct Maintenance Cost (DMC) predictions. We supplement these design tools with experienced former aircraft maintainers who can guide your design teams in creating reliable and maintainable products.
- Continued Airworthiness: We can support your fleet through in-service data capture and reliability tracking. We also offer maintenance programme support services, including Approved Maintenance Schedule reviews, and MSG-3 analysis for modifications and candidate task evaluation. In supporting your fleet's Maintenance Programme evolution, we can help you to optimise your maintenance check strategy and build evidence for schedule rationalisation.
