9:20 AM CASE STUDY: The Future Submarines Program, Asset Management for the Largest Procurement Program in Australia’s Defence History
Navy capability is developed utilising an Asset Management approach. Whilst some of the terminology is different, capability is developed and sustained utilising a whole of life approach, in line with good Asset Management principles. Utilising an Operating and Support Intent approach that evolves in parallel with the maturity of the design and then through the asset’s operational life, Navy is able to maximise the operational effect over the life of the capability.
- The Operating and Support Intent aims to closely align the level of support with the level of operation to maximise capability through life.
- Managing periods of asset employment outside of normal operating parameters.
- Dealing with advanced degradation through environmental or other affects.
