Winning Program

DELMIA Aerospace & Defence
70% of cost decisions made during a program's concept and preliminary design phase impact 80% of total lifecycle cost.

Roland Berger 2011

To respond to a customer’s RFP, creating the right concept requires the integrated management of complex system alternatives definition. Companies that focus on this pre-launch, configuration phase improve proposal fidelity and delivery accuracy. Winning Program improves program definition and better decision-making between capabilities vs. costs.

The best proposal is based on high system concept fidelity, detailed alternative definition and comparisons, with full traceable simulation history and associated data. As a result, proposals delivered are technically feasible, on time and at a competitive price to fully meet the requirements of customers.

Key Benefits

  • End to end knowledge capture ensures full visibility and reusable processes.
  • Generates the best concept architecture with full traceability of concept phase decisions.
  • Accelerated concept studies using iterative optimisation to guide collaborative decision making.
  • Timely access to data through secure storage, search & retrieval
  • Improved quality of alternatives with dedicated automaton of single and networked simulations.

Proposal Development

Communicate the complexity and nature of the concept

Proposal Development provides the governance and collaboration tools to effectively document and manage program and project information for Request for Proposal (RFP) or Preliminary Design Review (PDR).

  • Control environment to ensure efficient convergence to proposal deliverables (Integrated Master Plan and Integrated Master Schedule)
  • Integrated requirements visibility and traceability to ensure requirement fulfilment and compliancy throughout the concept development phase
  • Measure program performance, schedule and cost with greater visibility
  • Eliminate program silos of information and achieve one version of the truth

 Configuration Development

Transform Requirements into Alternative Solutions

Configuration Definition takes a more precise approach to compare complex A&D systems. It provides the tools tounderstand the correlation of requirements on system component selection and share one view of the system architecture to the extended team.

  • Capture design knowledge to give designers ability to investigate more “what if” and retain valuable knowledge within the company
  • Define complex systems more accurately to significantly reduce overall program cost
  • Assess and trade off the impact of various disciplines more simply to arrive at the best architecture and definition of the concept to meet requirements

Systems Trade Studies

Explore “Best” Alternative Design

Systems Trade Studies  provides an enhanced ability to view tradeoffs by leveraging on  multidiscipline analysis and an optimisation process that provides analytical results to validate system selection.

  • Concept confidence is increased and program cost is reduced with increase in trade studies
  • Concept fidelity is higher (faster, more detailed, more alternatives)
  • Preliminary / Detail Design phases and overall program costs are lower Capture and reuse full analysis history (model, scenario, result) for use in future studies
