Knowing what type and quantity of spares to purchase, plus knowing the optimum location of where your spares should be held to best support your system, is a complex question to answer. Large and complex systems can require a significant pool of spares, and getting the right type and number of spares can be a significant capability and cost enhancing factor in any project.
Nova’s genesis was in the demanding arena of aerospace Test and Evaluation. It was in this demanding environment that Nova systems developed its in-depth knowledge of capability support requirements. From that fundamental analysis arose a keen understanding of the spares analysis process.
Logistics Engineering is an essential element of maximising capability whilst minimising life cycle costs. Nova Logistics engineers are knowledgeable in a wide range of specialisations that contribute to the design of the ‘through life’ aspects of complex systems.
The Nova Spares Analysis component of the logistics engineering activity includes aspects such as Logistics Support Analysis, Life Cycle Costing, human factors engineering, workforce planning, infrastructure, transport, training, publications and specialisations such as reliability, availability, maintainability and safety aspects of systems (RAMS).
