Why ISS

Benefits of an In-Service Support Contract

Unplanned hardware and software maintenance can be a reality for complex systems. An In-Service Support (ISS) program can mitigate the unexpected, tailored to the customer’s requirements, is a cornerstone of optimized operational availability.

An OSI ISS program counteracts uncertainty and alleviates other problems through maintenance planning using Reliability Modelling and Logistic Support Analysis.

Value Add

A Scheduled and Corrective maintenance program saves the customer the expense of uncertainty. The added value of including an ISS agreement into the procurement package will be recognized through the life of the equipment with less downtime and more operational efficiency.

Ease of Mind

Unplanned hardware and software maintenance can be a reality for complex systems. An In-Service Support (ISS) program can mitigate the unexpected, tailored to the customer’s requirements, is a cornerstone of optimized operational availability. An OSI ISS program counteracts uncertainty and alleviates other problems through maintenance planning using Reliability Modelling and Logistic Support Analysis.

A Scheduled and Corrective maintenance program saves the customer the expense of uncertainty. The added value of including an ISS agreement into the procurement package will be recognized through the life of the equipment with less downtime and more operational efficiency. An OSI ISS agreement is the customer’s assurance that if OSI equipment is not operating as it should be, it will be taken care of.

An example of this is in heavily regulated, highly complex Integrated Navigation and Bridge Systems. Replacement equipment often requires long lead times. Through spares modelling, OSI manages a Recommended Spare Parts List (RSPL), thus mitigating unnecessary delays caused by supplier lead times.


Equipment Maintenance & Software Support

Optimized Approach to ILS

Logistic Support (ILS) methodologies optimize system efficiencies, reduce costs, and enhance operational availability. Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Reliability and Logistic Support
Analysis Predictions are implicit in OSI’s through-life support underpinned by a philosophy of “Zero in Mission Maintenance” and progressive, focused obsolescence management to aggregate
equipment and software replacement costs.

Tailored Support

Your in-service support requirements are matched by our comprehensive support offering. We offer a blended approach to your installation and commissioning requirements, delivering service by OSI’s specialized support team or in-country Approved Support Partners. In addition, customers can select from a range of of fully tailorable ISS packages discussed on page 4, ranging from essential service desk support (Package One) to full availability agreements (Package Four).

Optimized Availability

Flexible ISS Contract Packages

OSI offers blended ISS Contracts to maximize the Operational Availability of our customers’ bridge and navigation systems and delivered directly by OSI or an approved in-country Approved Service Provider. OSI has developed a range of highly competitive, tailorable In-Service Support Contracts based on the Bronze base package, or with additional benefits of Silver, Gold and Black solutions ranging from basic Service Desk support to full availability agreements.

Service Desk

The OSI Service Desk is delivered through the Single Point of Contact hosted from OSI’s Canadian Headquarters. OSI believes in continuous improvement and will be adding enhancements to its Service Desk delivery. A cloud-based solution, accessible anywhere in the world enables Customer and Approved Service Provider support.
When internet access is not available such as during Communication Blackouts and Submarine Dived Operations a standalone System will provide Service Requests and Incident Tickets to be raised by the End User.

Structured Deployable Spares Solutions

OSI recognizes the challenges associated with supplying highly regulated systems such as Bridge and Navigation Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) equipment based Systems which can result in spares and replacement parts having extended lead times. To optimize turnaround times, OSI conducts System Reliability modelling and Product Support Analysis to identify the Recommended Spares Packages.
