The Airbus A400M is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft being designed and manufactured by Airbus Military. The UK MoD A400M Project Team exists to deliver the aircraft fleet and through-life logistic support into service with the Royal Air Force.
BMT supported the Project Team with the development of the Value for Money Benchmark (VfMB) required to support the In-Service Support Assessment Phase, which will determine the preferred procurement strategy.
BMT developed independent support costs using relevant industry expertise, and constructed an open architecture “should cost” model to allow the Project Team to:
The model contained independent estimates for the costs of providing In-Service Support for the first 10 years in-service life of the UK fleet.
The model will be used to:
The development and implementation of the Should Cost Model required an understanding of the proposed support package, access to authoritative information on aircraft servicing and maintenance, and the ability to construct a robust cost model.
The overall task required close liaison between BMT and the Project Team to ensure that all areas of the proposed ISS support package were understood and sized in order that all required elements were included.
Our support vessels have been developed as a cost-effective option for complying with international maritime regulations to reduce the risk of pollution. AEGIR offers navies a customisable alternative to commercial replenishment tanker capability.
UK MoD Defence Equipment and Support In-Service Submarines (ISM) Project Team (via SSMG) required support to design an Environmental Management System (EMS).

BMT was contracted by the LPPV Product Team in 2009 to update risk and schedule data from two industry partners and run a cost and timescale risk analysis to feed the business case and down-selection of a vehicle.
