Challenges for DoD OEMs


How Do Customers Rate Your On-Time Delivery Performance?


PBLs are typically based on an availability metric, whether it is related to weapons systems, materials or resources. In turn, cost-effective availability is based upon multiple layers of planning to address uncertainty.


Your Customers Expect the Best Supplier Performance


For the defense contractor, understanding and managing parts requirements is critical - from the capture process through operational sustainment of a PBL. Performance targets are merged with mission profiles to define the operational challenge.
 


How Important Is Material Availability to Your PBL Performance?


The PTC model has highly specialized optimization that can reconcile mission profiles and availability targets, causal factors influencing demand, weapon system configurations, maintenance schedules, myriad sources of supply and random failures into one unified material plan. Modeling for revenue and budget supports strategic planning in the capture process through tactical planning in the sustainment of the PBL.

The commercial OEM is facing an increasingly demanding customer expecting more and more of their suppliers. Aviation maintenance’s lifeblood is parts. Flight schedules are made or broken on the predictability and reliability of the parts supply chain. This is reflected in the importance given to on-time delivery in supplier performance ratings. On-time delivery is usually second only to quality – an airworthiness issue. PTC provides the ability to share information – including flight or maintenance schedules, forecasts of independent demand and existing inventory levels – with your carrier or MRO customers to create a collaborative process that resolves considerable supply chain risk and uncertainty.

PTC's configurable dashboards support role-based tracking of operational performance by PBL, program or customer while a robust Service Knowledge module exposes issues and opportunities lost in the detailed data.
