Our approach to TLCM
Our philosophy is to take a through life approach to capability management in which every aspect of new and existing capability is planned and managed across all lines of development. We work alongside our customers to address capability gaps by developing robust requirements and specification standards, including assisting with the complex requirements capture and trade-off process. Trade-offs are inevitably required to acquire a system that is affordable (lowest life cycle cost), operable, supportable, sustainable, transportable, and environmentally sound. We also review existing designs to create accurate and unambiguous definitions of systems and ensure that clarity of design is flowed throughout the supply chain. This same approach is equally applicable to any modifications, re-roles or mid-life upgrades.
We work closely with customers from the initial design through to manufacture and in developing innovative support solutions using the structured approach of Integrated Logistic Support (ILS). We then support the product in-service throughout its life, including on deployed operations, and ultimately arranging for its final safe disposal at end of life.
