At Portsmouth Aviation, technical services are an integral part of our business model.
Designed to support and complement our traditional manufacturing capabilities, we have worked hard to develop a wide range of core competencies to ensure that we remain at the forefront of the aviation and precision engineering industries.
These services include project management, post-design support, technical publications, simulation and analysis, training and testing, amongst others. Many of these services have become an essential part of modern manufacturing processes and integral to the success of precision engineering organisations.
A full range of in-house services
Portsmouth Aviation differs from the vast majority of its competitors by bringing as many of these services in-house as possible. This is advantageous for several reasons. First and foremost, it reduces the timeframe for project completion by eliminating back and forth communications between our team and other partner organisations. It also limits the scope for error or inaccuracies in the manufacturing process. Perhaps most importantly, it allows for a unified and coherent vision. By completing all the necessary work in-house, we can be sure that we’re developing a product we know will meet our customers’ requirements. For us, our relationship with a customer is about more than the product. It’s about ensuring that every aspect of our service provision is tailored to provide you with a comprehensive solution that meets customer requirements.
Typically, our new product introduction (NPI) system follows a generic and linear lifecycle and adopts the principles of the CADMID process – Concept, Assessment, Demonstration, Manufacture, In Service and Disposal. This allows a framework which integrates the whole organisation, guaranteeing that communication and common goals are shared. CADMID provides a mechanism for new product governance, control and assurance at each stage, ensures the project is effectively managed and provides a high level of progress visibility for our customers. The system is fully tailorable to meet specific customer requirements and budgetary needs.
