Industry expertise in large-scale aerospace and defense projects
With large, capital-intensive projects such as those in aerospace and defense, you need to be reducing costs, transforming operations and effectively managing unexpected disruptions. During this people sometimes get forgotten. Companies then wonder why productivity and return on investment is not good enough.
It is difficult. And yet we do it for our clients every day. And the results we deliver last.
We achieve this by focusing on your people. We use our know-how of the aerospace and defense industry to design and implement best practices and training on scheduling, supply chain, maintenance, safety and operations. Reducing overtime hours, operating penalties and crew fatigue, we facilitate employees’ ability to direct efforts towards maximizing asset utilization, cost reduction and safe delivery of services.
As we work together with the people doing the work we uncover processes that are not required or can be fixed to save lost time. Simple fixes costing a few dollars can save minutes here and there saving thousands of dollars over the year. Fixing the frustrations of the people means more engagement from the team and a better work culture.
What if you could...

Increase operational performance: “We are impressed by your capacity to implement and put in place a ‘Coup de Boost.’ After previous projects in operational areas, we wanted to try your methodology on the SG&A costs, and it was the best decision. We need to continue working with you and your methodology as it really succeeds.” Company CEO
Compress Turnaround Times: A global airline wanted to increase the certainty of aircraft turnaround time during light checks while also avoiding AOG incidences. The airline was particularly concerned about delays over 60 minutes and the knock-on disruption i.e. forced crew and plane changes, catering changes, hotel bills, and reputational damage.
Transform Operations: The Head of Aircraft Maintenance for a major seasonal airline needed to transform their UK-based operations to remain competitive, reduce turnaround time to absorb previously outsourced aircraft C-Checks, and maintain high levels of service.
