Project Outline

Coras was engaged by the Maritime Cross-Platform System Program Office (MCPSPO) to lead the management and continual improvement of the newly formed Combat Systems Integrated Product Team’s (IPT) Engineering Team. The Combat Systems IPT construct was implemented to focus and prioritise the delivery of maritime products, whereas the previous organisational construct prevented significant cross-function engagement, resulting in function-based ‘silo’ operations and recurrent obsolescence issues. 

Coras was responsible for delivering MCPSPO’s Combat Systems engineering services, delivered as pre-engineered changes to Platform System Program Offices (SPOs).  These services included providing expert advice and completing the following activities on behalf of the Commonwealth: 

  • Technical Information Reviews 
  • Risk Assessments 
  • Development Approval and Incorporation Approval Engineering Change Documentation 
  • Verification and Validation 
  • Test and Evaluation
  • Product Acceptance 

Achievements

Our team was embedded in MCPSPO’s Combat Systems IPT which enabled Coras to effectively grow the engineering teams specialist Combat Systems and Maritime Engineering knowledge through the application of systems engineering principals. Through the delivery of professional engineering services Coras: 

  • Provided expert combat systems engineering knowledge and advice 
  • Developed an improved Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) management system to enable ECP tracking while promoting timely completion 
  • Enhanced the knowledge and skills of existing personnel in the development of professional engineering documentation to improve quality output
  • Progressed the development of Engineering Change Proposals to reduce a backlog of outstanding tasks

Client

Maritime Cross Platform System Program Office (MCPSPO) is an organisation within the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) responsible for the delivery of logistics and engineering support for cross-class maritime systems and materiel to the Navy.
