Capability Acquisition & Delivery

Capability Acquisition & Delivery

In the complex connected world of today, the successful delivery of a capability depends on a systems approach towards defining and developing the capability. A systematic process of defining and scoping the operational concept, operational and technical requirements, and the other systems and stakeholders that the capability needs to interface with is key to managing the technical and project risks associated with any complex capability.

From introducing the largest amphibious air capable warship through to planning the rail transport infrastructure, our people understand the technology and the complexity of the operational environment. Most importantly, they have the systems thinking perspective. We provide the expertise from system architecture and development of operational concepts through to through life costing, spanning the cradle to grave life cycle of the capability from initial concepts through retirement.

With our global presence, we bring the best capability definition and delivery practices to our customers. Whether it is the largest amphibious warship or developing the latest unconventional gas fields, we have our systematic processes to help deliver our customer’s capability.

Our capabilities include:

  • Development of Operational Concepts and Requirements
  • Requirements Management
  • Systems Engineering
  • Life Cycle Costing and Through Life Support Planning
  • Project Planning
