Aerospace and Defense comprises a broad spectrum of sub-markets all dedicated to the maintenance and sustainment of fleets of complex and mobile assets. The metrics vary between commercial and defense, MROs and carriers, distributors and OEMs, but one common thread is availability. Whether it is availability of weapons systems, aircraft fleets or the parts themselves, highly specialized material planning solutions are required to provide world class performance. Servigistics' A&D solutions bring together three major components to maximize availability.
Our model has been developed in concert with some of the leading minds in service parts optimization for complex asset maintenance and deployed at OEMs, carriers and war-fighters. Based upon asset or mission profiles the logic defines the lowest budget or cost solution for an asset or weapon system availability target. As many of the inputs are projections or estimates themselves, the model supports a number of sensitivity analysis and risk mitigation analytics.
Optimization describes an extremely attractive end state. Tactical or sustainment planning achieves it. By creating a unified plan that reconciles every source of demand — planned and unplanned — with the available array of sources including redeployment, repair/overhaul, polling, cannibalization as alternatives to purchase, target levels are attained at the lowest per-part cost. Specialized data structures allow for unique configurations to ensure that part revisions and interchangeability are fully comprehended.
Millions of parts, thousands of assets, hundreds of locations make it difficult to see above the details. Highly configurable, role-based interactive dashboards summarize performance data in ways that immediately highlight issues and opportunities and support root cause and other analyses.
