A large and complex technical system is often quite vulnerable. For example a missing spare part can result in total shut down of major operations and production facilities. This creates not only unforeseen costs but also loss of revenue and in some cases hazardous situations. Mitigating this problem by excessive stocks of spare parts and/or adding extra personnel and workshops will mean high costs and consequently low cost effectiveness.

We have a proven ability to find the right balance between cost and availability by optimizing the amount of logistic support resources such as workshops, personnel and maintenance equipment. A key focus area is spares optimization –where the relation between investment and availability is very obvious. Systecons leading software tools within the Opus Suiteare essential in this work.
