With limited budgets and rising prices for capability modernization, the need for reductions in total ownership costs demand strategies that free up funds by reining in the support costs of current systems. Whether achieved through reliability and maintainability upgrades, the implementation of supply chain efficiencies, or competitive product support initiatives, the need to identify savings without impairing overall system performance places today’s Total Life Cycle System Manager in a vast and confused decision space.
Life Cycle Cost is determined by the existence and complex interaction of events, each with its own cost and draw on resources. MAAP is a unique event-driven, activity-based ‘adding engine’ of ‘cost atoms’ to derive the Life Cycle Cost for your system. Automatically handling all the complex interactions of support, MAAP is capable of supporting a wide range of analytical tasks. A MAAP model keeps its relevance over the life cycle of a capital investment by passing data from one analytical model to the next with no need for re-interpretation, transformation or re-entry into other decision models or databases. MAAP is equally at home helping you make decisions, in both the defence and civilian commercial system environments.
MAAP delivers the ability to evaluate the resource and cost implications of the deployment, operation and support of complex evolving systems in dynamic operating scenarios. Providing unmatched decision support, it can be used to help you in your: system selection; operational planning; support planning; resource management; capability planning; and budget planning.
The potential of MAAP is further unleashed by its mPOWER Support Analysis Tool Suite, with the mBRACE, mBOSS and mPIRIC utilities. MAAP also unlocks the route to Supportability Audit; the proven technique using events, resources, frequencies, durations & cost data to support drive-down analysis and improvement evaluation.
+ Through-Life Cost (TLC) Estimating
+ Optimizing your support resources, not just spares, to deliver system availability
+ Identifying the drivers of support cost and performance
+ Assessing the benefits of support improvements before committing to them
+ Evaluating how to cut costs while minimising the loss of capability
