Keynote Theatre

Ensure peak performance and efficiency for the Royal Navy's future submarine fleet

Trade-offs and collaboration: balance capability, availability, and cost requires careful analysis and teamwork between key stakeholders.

Integrated Product Support (IPS): a collaborative framework for optimising submarine design, maintenance, and sustainment.

"Supportable Design Principles": embedding maintainability and supportability into the DNA of the submarine from the start.

Data and digital opportunities: leverage technology like condition monitoring and 3D printing for improved availability and cost management.

"Best for Enterprise" approach: foster collaboration and shared goals among all parties involved.
