Through-life engineering services – Adding business value through a common framework – Guide

last modified Jul 24, 2018 05:49 PM
This Publicly Available Specification (PAS) offers guidance to leaders of the UK industry that may enable manufacturing and solution providers in all sectors to win business, gain market share, generate revenue, and earn profits from the application of through-life engineering services (TES).

This PAS (Publicly Available Specification) was sponsored by the Innovate UK. Its development was facilitated by BSI Standards Limited and it was published under licence from The British Standards Institution.

Through-life engineering services (TES) are a set of capabilities, techniques, business thinking and network behaviours that, when applied to major assets, optimise their value and cost (e.g. keeping major assets working better, for longer, more economically). The motivation for publishing this PAS is to develop the opportunities for using TES within the UK to improve the capability and productivity of the UK industry base relative to the international competition. In some sectors, UK manufacturers have already achieved global leadership by showing that replacing the major asset ownership model with a service-based model allows the link between profit and major asset up-time, reliability, and longevity to be explicit. This, in turn, drives productivity and exports. 

The PAS also offers guidance to leaders of the UK industry that may enable manufacturing and solution providers in all sectors to win business, gain market share, generate revenue, and earn profits from the application of TES. Given that research has demonstrated the benefits that TES derives from supply chain coordination, this guidance is offered to leaders of companies on every scale from multinational to small and medium-sized enterprises (SME).

Understanding business models in the construction sector

Nov 25, 2020

What’s standing in the way of offsite manufacturing? For decades, the construction sector has been hailing it as the next big thing but we have yet to see it really taking off.

Making business model innovation happen: the Business Model Cohesiveness Scorecard

Oct 30, 2020

Digital transformation is failing to live up to its hype, at least as far as productivity gains are concerned. If, as research suggests, a lack of business model innovation is the main culprit, we need a way of making it happen. Dr Chander Velu thinks a balanced scorecard approach could be the answer.
