We pride ourselves on being a leading independent centre for defense engineering design and are equipped to tackle the most complex design and systems issues:
BMT's multi-disciplined approach and expert teams allow us to design solutions which focus on enterprise, infrastructure, build-ability and through-life support factors, ranging from multiple platform concepts right down to system or equipment design change solutions.
We understand that technical assurance reduces the risk of re-work and delays which is why technical assurance is central to our methodology. As a result, our solutions provide a clear outline of capability, affordability and project requirement decisions.
We constantly challenge the design capability within our multi-disciplinary project teams, focusing on innovation and the application of new technologies, BMT InSpira® co-ordinates R&D efforts towards new and emerging markets. Explore these in our design portfolio.
Our concept design credits include:
The essential experience gained by BMT's multi-disciplined teams through concept and whole ship design work means that we are ideally placed to conduct design assurance activities, to support in maintenance of design intent through life and to develop system or equipment design change solutions.
We are able to provide independent engineering design services to both client and supplier organisations.
Technical assurance of our outputs is central to our methodology, supports decision making and reduces the risk of re-work and delays. Our design capabilities cover the full spectrum, including:
Is the platform safe or not? The importance safety is recognized by all but the sheer complexity of a platform, the number of stakeholders involved and complex regulatory regimes and underpinning processes can all undermine your confidence in the safety of a platform design or a design change to a platform.
BMT has experience of developing and applying safety management approaches under a range of safety regulation, policy and guidance, across high-hazard domains. Our approach to safety management follows the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)-recommended four stage cycle (Plan, Do, Check, Act) and combines this with best practice built from our pan-domain experience.
Our technical expertise is founded upon in-depth knowledge and capability in safety and environmental regulation and management systems. We can ensure to the client a cost effective and pragmatic, compliance to regulations, standards and legislation.
In-service support activities are often not considered adequately during the design phase which results in the cost and duration of support activities being driven upwards.
Our design teams have a wide range of experience across the lifecycle of a platform and are able to consider support activities as the design is developed. Thus the design is optimized to enable support activities.
Maintaining design intent through life is a challenge and the importance is often lost in the pressures of delivering during the in-service phase. This can have serious safety implications as well as driving in-efficiencies in delivery of in-service availability, driving up in-service support costs.
We have a full range of capabilities for provision of post-design services, ranging from development of in-service support solutions to provision of those services, including provision of design changes, authoring of technical documentation and provision of configuration management services.
