A 70% CUT IN TEST CAPITAL BUDGETS – AND OTHER AEROSPACE & DEFENSE CUSTOMER RESULTS

Dramatic reductions in costs are just the beginning of the results you can achieve with the help of The Sente Group.

Since 1997, we’ve helped a variety of market leaders in Aerospace and Defense implement Test Resource Management™ (TRM) solutions. These solutions are focused on helping companies leverage their scarce capital resources on value-added, “core” activities. TRM processes drive measurable performance improvements by leveraging:

  • Human Capital by focusing valuable company employees on value-added tasks, eliminating non-value added tasks, and acquiring capability for the performance of non-core tasks by best-in-class strategic vendors.
  • Capital Equipment by increasing the coordination of equipment between users so that utilization increases by as much as 4X, driving capital spend and operating capital requirements down by over 50%.
  • Facilities Capital by reducing footprint requirements and enabling consolidation of lab spaces.
  • Financial Capital – made available by capital budget and operating capital performance improvements – to fund growth and competitive advantage in the markets our customers serve.

Creating then Accelerating a Competitive Advantage

The graph below shows the performance improvements possible from the successful management of capital. It compares companies working with Sente, focused on management of their capital through use of TRM, versus companies who do not have TRM installed. Companies working with Sente had a slight advantage 10 years ago, but that gap has widened over the last 10 years as those companies have focused on effective capital deployment with TRM as one of their strategies.
