SUPPORTING DEFENCE DELIVERING CAPABILITY, ENSURING SAFETY & REDUCING RISK

 
Quorum has provided analysis expertise and support on a range of high profile projects such as Panther, BOWMAN, MAN Support Vehicle, GDUK FRES Scout SV, BAE Systems Terrier and LMUK WCSP. The activities covered the development of plans and documentation during bid phases and supply of resources after contract award. We managed and conducted risk analysis on Panther and MAN Support Vehicle for the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and Ministry of Defence (MoD) including Scout SV on behalf of LMUK.

On the BAE Systems Terrier project, Quorum provided the ILS Manager, Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) Engineers and Technical Documentation Specialists. The team successfully managed and delivered against the contractual requirements to achieve the Logistic Support Date (LSD) and the In-Service Date (ISD).

For LMUK, Quorum provided R&M and team review services during the bid phase. We are currently providing the Safety Lead Engineer and System Safety Engineers for WCSP and Scout SV programmes.

SUPPORTING FUTURE ENERGY IDENTIFYING EFFICIENCIES AND
LONG TERM SUPPORT

 
  Using our expertise in analysing systems and equipment to the lowest indenture level helps us to understand how systems need to be operated and maintained.

Our analysis considers a range of elements such as the impact of the operating environment, reliability, maintenance regime, spares, manpower, skills and the associated support & test equipment which are all contributing factors to cost efficiencies, operational effectiveness and ultimately availability of the system or equipment.

We work with available data from system or equipment manufacturers and generate a cohesive “complete system” maintenance regime that considers minimal downtime and optimal maintenance.

SUPPORTING TRANSPORT MEETING ESTABLISHED TARGETS

 
  As part of any activity, we conduct an initial scoping study and tailor the tasks based on experience and project needs; the selected tasks are chosen on the basis that they will be most beneficial in terms of identifying the infrastructure, associated vehicles and their intended operation.

Due consideration is given to fixed installations, maintenance requirements, modes of transport and how it is operated including policies and procedures.

We assess and determine the reliability down to a piece part, we utilise analysis tools to establish failure modes, causes and effects and then develop necessary processes and procedures to ensure that an effective maintenance policy and the required support is in place to take account of any Key Performance Indicators (KPI) or agreed targets which have to be met.

SUPPORTING MANUFACTURING ENSURING CONTINUED WORKING

  Quorum carried out a feasibility study in the relocation of a complex manufacturing facility. The study covered all areas such as: production, test, packaging, storage, lifting equipment, offices and shop floor. Source data used for the study consisted of drawings detailing proposed location of each area, photographs and site visits.

Some of the additional issues addressed included capital costs of the relocation, potential impact on the business during lost production time, transfer of skills, any associated relocation packages and travel time by staff during and after transition.

Detailed budgetary cost allocations were developed identifying all costs associated with each element including the requirement for any additional off-site temporary offices to ensure continued working. All findings were presented in a comprehensive report including conclusions and recommendations.
