The ability to efficiently maintain a broad array of diverse assets and parts across multiple locations impacts the performance and ultimate success of fleet availability, system readiness, maintenance throughput, shop cycle times, and mission readiness. Current challenges include:
Such complex, multi-layered operational challenges require highly specialized software solutions. PTC’s Systems of Systems approach enables our customers to design, manufacture and service these assets “end to end” in their life cycle with the supply chain operations, create a set of inventory targets optimized to availability goals while driving fluid inventory networks, maximize utilization of repairable assets, and manage supply positions in the enterprise or by program.
PTC capabilities include out of the box, end to end, Internet of Things capabilities to enable ‘connected’ design, manufacture and service. This enables a Systems of Systems approach for deployment, proven with ‘significant past performance’ in the military based on the SCOR model, as well as many DoD OEMs, Airlines, and MRO’s supply chains.For example, PTC’s SPM software solution synchronizes supply and demand with maintenance. This systems of systems approach leads to maximum readiness for all land, air, or sea-based assets.
Leading airlines, defense agencies, DoD OEMs, and MROs use PTC solutions to harmonize inventory planning and optimize the Service Supply Chain.
