BMT understand that delivering capable defence solutions requires an enterprise to work harmoniously. That's why our systems engineering processes engage stakeholders and the Defence Lines of Development from the outset.
Requirements engineering concerns the discovery, analysis, negotiation and definition of user and system requirements in order to identify specific capability needs.
BMT's comprehensive approach identifies and defines all aspects of a system to help clients avoid unplanned cost increases and time delays.
We combine this systematic approach with software systems, architecture framework expertise and our proven experience to develop robust requirements, specifications and systems that create a structured and auditable base on which to make clear, concise and speedy decisions towards delivery.
BMT offer a full systems analysis and architecture design capability applying a holistic approach to systems analysis and architecture design, using processes to successfully analyse and implement all aspects of the system. Through this we deliver the foundation for successful projects through well-designed architecture.
Using a number of tools and techniques, BMT can analyse systems in order to understand them from every point of view, encompassing strategic, organisational, operational and physical aspects, and produce outputs to simplify them. This should help to avoid potential disruption and unforeseen costs at a later stage. With a single integrated process, BMT helps clients to understand and address the many aspects which increase complexity, including new technologies, differing stakeholder requirements, reliance on embedded software, safety issues and integration.
Delivering operationally effective capability is centred on the ability to combine approach, method and the required skill sets. This manner of comprehensive thinking ensures that all areas of the project are considered upfront, risks are identified and planned for, issues are resolved, and assumptions are realistic and justified. This approach enables a more agile and flexible approach to capability delivery and a higher value of integrated military capability, resulting in project risk reduction and minimal cost.
At BMT we take an objective approach from concept to disposal, working in line with the Defence Values for Acquisition. Each process is tailored to specific requirements utilising our flexible working approach and far-reaching experience to identify key deliverables.
Acceptance of complex military equipment is a complicated task. BMT Defence Services has adopted the authoritative guidance for acceptance contained in the MOD’s Acquisition Operating Framework to tailor this to the specific needs of each project. We identify the applicable standards, the stakeholders for acceptance activities, risks to cost, quality and capability, and the key evidence required to inform acceptance decisions. Based on this, we then develop the acceptance strategy to address both equipment and DLoD, including managing trials, resources and facilities and producing a robust Integrated Test Evaluation and Acceptance Plan (ITEAP) and key documentation in order to achieve overall equipment acceptance.
