An Intensive One-Day Seminar
Huntsville, AL September 4, 2018
This one-day conference is aimed at organizations involved in sustainment of complex systems. With complexity comes risk and buyers increasingly demand more capability for less money including "risk budgets" whose importance grows with belt-tightening. You can tame the risk/reward equation by timely, intelligent use of advanced logistics modeling. These tools allow you to explore, in a benign synthetic environment, different support solutions and the risks associated with a variety of scenarios. Hundreds of options can be tested quickly and easily to establish how different cost and performance drivers interact, enabling engineering, supply and financial managers to home in on a risk/price sweet spot that suits both your appetite and that of your customers.
Thsi Seminar explains how to carry out an audit of system supportability. The purpose of the audit is to uncover those gold nuggets that will help you do more for less:increase operational availability despit a constant or decreasing annual budget.

Allan Goody , Air Commodore RAF (ret), has specialized in engineering, logistics, training, and program and change management. An aeronautical engineer his RAF assignments covered capability requirements, life cycle program management and front line commands. His last two posts were Director, Training Capability for all services and MRA4 Deputy Team Leader and Chief Engineer. Joining TFD Europe in 2013, Allan has directed numerous projects in the UK, Sweden, Finland and Japan. Allan was appointed Managing Director of TFD Europe on 1 May 2017.
Robert Butler is the founder and CEO of the TFD Group of companies. He accounts for 55 years of experience in both hands-on-logistic management and development of analytical methods of logistics. Butler began his professional life at the RAND Corporation. In 1976, he established the first TFD company as a defense research consultancy. Turning to software in 1982, Butler developed several tools used by logisticians throughout the world, including the TFD Data Vault, EDCAS, VMetric, MAAP, SCO and most recently the multi-period spares optimization tool, Tempo.
Over 20 years of successful logistics management in Defence and Aerospace, holding senior positions with Finmeccanica, Thales and MSI Defence Systems. A subject matter expert in configuration, obsolescence, test and CLS management, Mitch has extensive analytical and modelling experience working across the land, sea and air domains. Mitch is the current LCC analyst for the UK Ajax platform and provides support to the UK MoD and Swedish FMV on a number of projects.
