Life Cycle Modeling

Develop and Analyze Cost Reduction Initiatives (CRI) to Lower Future Program Costs

Technology Insertion and Roadmap Development

Through years of experience, our team has developed a deep understanding of complicated system integration strategies. Balancing the need to maintain current system capability with breakthrough technology initiatives has become a consistent and core strength of the Powers & Zahr approach. Our team can support or independently assess these opportunities, known as Cost Reduction Initiatives (CRI), throughout the product life cycle. We will develop the technology road map to migrate enabling capabilities into the system, while also mitigating integration risk. PZ has supported a variety of clients, from commercial product development projects to defense legacy systems, with future sustainment goals.

Total Ownership Cost (TOC) Analysis

When it comes to acquisition strategies, it becomes ever more important to understand all the costs that are sure to be associated with it. Beyond the initial acquisition price, ongoing support and maintenance can easily multiply the cost of ownership by several factors. Our team can assist or independently assess life-cycle cost by capturing the necessary data in our automated model providing in-depth analysis, future forecasting and identification of significant cost-drivers to help clients more intimately understand the Total Ownership Cost. Using our historically proven TOC/LCC models, Powers & Zahr can forecast the ownership cost outlook and begin providing insight quickly.

Business Case Planning

Connecting technical products to a future business case may be the most important step in the future market planning process. While innovators and inventors possess incredible technical abilities, bridging the gap to the market with an entrepreneurial mindset is often difficult. Our team is able to assess the market, find alternate routes to market, guide clients towards success and capture the metrics necessary to understand the Return of Investment (ROI) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR). Our Business Case Planning services include:

  • Analysis of Current & Future Market Opportunities
  • Development of Business Case Approach Stategy
  • ROI and IRR Forecasting and Analysis
  • Analysis of Alternative Approaches to Market
  • Risk Assessment Analysis of Business Case
  • Analysis of Acquisition Methods
  • Analysis of Critical Customers & Partners
