Systems Life Cycle Management, Engineering, Education

Systems engineering
Our support and skill set
Complex systems
Humanity depends on natural and human made systems, some simple, mostly complex. Described as systems of systems, a transparent and fundamental understanding is required to work with these tangible and intangible elements, and tangible and intangible interfaces. We support customers with:
  • Science based systems engineering
  • Natural and social science considerations
  • Solution scoping and modelling
  • Life cycle accounting
  • Functional thinking
  • Pragmatic implementation
Complex Systems Life Cycle Management
Information proficiency
We treat information as a high-value and critical asset and work with clients to provide integrated systems solutions. Particular attention is paid to its boundaries, planning, reform, and execution with:
  • Standards
  • Implementation assistance
  • Business rules
  • Configuration control
  • Working dictionaries, taxonomies, and e-libraries
  • Writing and style guides
  • Technical information production guides
  • Simplified technical English
  • Quality procedures and publishing
  • Data security, access, archiving

Product certification support
Approval, acceptance, and certification support has been provided to 14 helicopter, 13 fixed wing, 3 land systems, 2 rail projects, 6 technology programmes, and 7 organizations.  Services have included:
  • Policy development
  • Certification for products and organizations
  • Systems safety assessment programmes
  • Availability and reliability
  • Maintainability design and maintenance programmes
  • Integrated logistic support and sustainment
  • Life cycle costing
  • Training analysis and development

Safety, reliability
Quotec provide safety risk assessments, and reliability to root cause analysis. We support systems from concept to realization, with:
  • Concept of operations analysis
  • Functional, physical modelling
  • Functional Hazard Assessment (FHA)
  • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
  • Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • System Safety Assessment (SSA)
  • Particular risks and common mode analysis
  • Dependence Diagrams Analysis (DDA)
  • Development Assurance Levels (DAL) assessment
  • Safety objectives
  • System Safety Assessment (SSA)
  • Safe Life Assessment (SLA)
Methods are determined as: required, appropriate, proportionate, effective, economic.

Technical publications
Documentation and publications production are a significant part of enterprise costs, affecting decision making and times-to-consumer. Environmental compliance will increase document demand for written evidence. We provide:
  • Integrated information solutions
  • S1000D implementation and project planning
  • Technical documents and manuals production
  • Controlled and simplified technical English
  • Information exchange
  • XML data formats
Functional hazard assessment
The most important safety risk assessment is the Functional Hazard Assessment (FHA) but it must be done with a full scope of interfaces.
An FHA is primarily recognized as a safety risk element of a design, but it is also a decision-making tool and a through-life, active record for designers, manufacturers, operators, maintainers and regulators.  The FHA is a low-cost assessment method as it looks at functions which are much cheaper to manage and evolve than physical items.  Conducting a FHA gives a basis for solution costs and developing the safety case for product integrity and marketing.
Procurement, supply chain and integrated logistics are essential support functions for a systems solution. Globalization means complex modelling of the networks required to delivery and remove products for disposal, repair, or re-purpose. Energy transition cannot happen if the support infrastructure is not in place. Quotec provide guidance and resources on developing models and records for:
  • Operations and maintenance requirements
  • Part and system metrics, and task analysis
  • Support and test equipment
  • Facilities and personnel
  • Packaging, handling, storage, transport
  • Reduce, re-purpose, recycle

Products are realized over time, with processes, resources, and controls, while acknowledging and taking into account interfaces and relationships.
We provide clients with adaptable, scalable and dynamic support, unhindered by the constrains of larger organizations, and with up-to-date, future proofed solutions.
