Project – Lynx Helicopter Capability Sustainment Programme.

Customer – MoD Defence Equipment and Support Attack Helicopter Project Team.

Equipment Type – Rotary Winged Weapons Platform

Support Delivered – AJS provided Technical Support on a number of deliverables:

Value For Money Benchmark (VfMB) – AJS provided workpackages for the support and guidance to the development of a fully described and costed Value For Money Benchmarking support solution to compare to an Industry delivered single source bid. This included the delivery of the following plans – Concept of Support, Service Delivery, Surge, Obsolescence, Information Systems, Software Support, Technical Publications and Continuous Improvement. This included maintaining the solutions alignment with the MoDs evolving Support Solutions Envelope.

Technical Information and Data (TID) In Process Review (IPR) – We provided workpackages for the guidance and documented a proposed approach to the Project Team on the suggested process for ‘In Process Review’ (IPR) of Technical Information and Data (TID) presented to the Team during procurement cycle from Industry. The delivered TID was LSAR, Technical Publications and Initial Provisioning data. Additionally we gave guidance during the initial data deliveries in order to increase the process efficiency for future deliveries.

Logistic Support Analysis Record (LSAR) Analysis Tools – We developed a methodology for, and identified tools to enable the Project Teams Management to assess the population status of the DEF STAN 00-60 Logistics Support Analysis Record database at a given point. This included the creation of a database based on the customers applications, knowledge and experience.

LSAR Through Life Options Analysis – We provided workpackages for the guidance and documented a proposed approach to the Project Team on the suggested uses of an LSAR though life for the platform support solution.

Supportability, Testability Evaluation and Verification (STEV) Task Selection – We provided workpackages for the guidance and documented a proposed approach to the Project Team on the suggested method of selection of Supportability Test Evaluation and Verification tasks. This was to enable the team to fine tune their selections as there were very limited boundaries on available time and funds.
