Session to Address Best Practices for Defining and Implementing the New MRO Business Model at Annual Gathering of Senior Military Leaders
PLANO, Texas – Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that Timothy Nichols, managing director of Aerospace and Defense Global Marketing for Siemens PLM Software, will moderate a panel session entitled “Next Generation Performance-Based Contracting” at this week’s AVIATION WEEK MRO Military Symposium 2009.
The panel session, focused on transforming the business model and processes behind sustaining new weapon system acquisitions, will take place on April 22 at 3 p.m. at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas.
“The issue of military logistics transformation is critical to an organization’s future success,” said Nichols. “Military original equipment manufacturers (OEM) as well as government fleet-support enterprises are increasingly recognizing the need to transform their maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operations from a disparate, manual process to a more disciplined, automated approach that involves a single digital platform across the total support enterprise to meet performance-based operational commitments, boost workforce productivity and manage total cost of ownership.”
The 2009 MRO Military Symposium brings together senior military leaders responsible for support of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) weapon systems to join in strategic planning sessions and share best practices, lessons learned and emerging ideas or technologies in the field of MRO.
