Maintenance Cost Control and Engineering Finance
To drive cost reduction and cost avoidance in order to achieve the resultant increase in profitability, we partner with our clients in the formulation and implementation of cost control strategy. We boast of a track record of delivering savings worth millions of dollars through implementation of lean processes which become embedded in business processes and result in continuous improvement. Our service offering includes preparation of maintenance budgets and setting of key performance indicators and setting up the smart dashboards which provide a clear overview of the financial health of our clients.
Technical Vendor Management
Our in-depth expertise in contract management provides our clients with an opportunity to re-evaluate the competitiveness of their contract terms and provide them with industry benchmarks which ensure that they are provided with favourable contracts which increase their savings ability and utilisation of available commitments from suppliers, OEMs and aircraft manufactures. We specialise in the review of service levels and run diagnostics on our client's vendor performance and provide recommendations on the remedies to be negotiated into contracts to deliver a balanced client-vendor relationship. Our pragmatic approach allows our clients to understand their position on the Power Matrix and our train-the-trainer negotiations skills training course offering ensures in-house-capabilities for our client's future contracts.
Production Planning and Control
We offer services in the formulation of end-to-end production planning processes which ensure the smooth flow of maintenance events from pre-induction to post check review. Our offering includes blue-print planning which drives optimisation of the aircraft maintenance events by mapping out the critical path, setting out clear milestones and devising mechanisms which manage maintenance requirements emanating from the dynamic nature of the checks. We set-up production control workflow processes which ensure progressive card closure and real-time visibility on material and manpower usage enabling live measurement of the profitability and maintenance completion status.
Our superior manpower planning diagnostic model measures the robustness of our client's manpower utilisation and provides a comparison to the industry benchmarks. We offer a comprehensive approach which drives the organisation to link the three key manpower performance indicators - effectiveness, efficiency and productivity. We offer tailor-made shift patterns which suit the maintenance requirements, adhere to human factors and regulatory authority requirements. Our approach delivers a training needs analysis and recruitment strategy which ensures the continued effectiveness of the shift pattern and seasonal nature of maintenance driven by the airline operations.
Leadership Development Training
The dynamic and ever-evolving world of aviation today requires a new breed of leaders to catapult their organisations to the next wave of growth. We partner with our clients to create a leadership journey that equips their leaders and people with the necessary skills and competencies required to improve their performance and effectiveness in the organisation. Our three-pronged approach towards leadership development centres on enhanced self-awareness, robust business acumen, as well as a thorough understanding of the business environment.
