OPUS10 v8 Overview

OPUS10 v8 is a powerful Cost Optimisation tool.  Its primary role is to determine the optimum mix of spares to support a complex system.  OPUS10 uses Marginal Analysis techniques to select the most Cost Effective (C/E) solution of Spare parts required to support any complex System.  OPUS10  can handle Multi Indenture, Multi Echelon (MiMe) problems.  The defined  system can have as many or as few items as necessary to define the problem, each system, sub-system or item can be defined to any indenture level (multi Indenture).  Likewise the Logistics Support Organisation (LSO) can be defined to include any number of stations.  Each Station can have a number of stations supporting it (multi echelon).  Different items can be defined to have different transportation routes, transportation times, repair capability and repair times.  Since v8 of OPUS10 each system and item can have any number of failure modes and each failure mode can also have different transportation routes, transportation times, repair capability and repair times assigned.  In addition OPUS10 can also handle Preventative Maintenance (PM) actions, these can be applied to both Systems and items.  As with failure modes PM events can be assigned different routes and locations within the support organisation.  OPUS10 can also be used as a Location of Repair Analysis (LORA) tool, note the Location of Repair, rather than the more traditional Level of repair Analysis.  The results calculated with OPSU10 can all be directly compared with other OPUS10 model results, this is particularly useful when trying to determine which solution might be the most effective, for example in a tendering exercise.  OPUS10 also provides a detailed Analysis capability that allows the user to gain a deeper understanding of the defined model.  For example it can be used to determine which items are the main cost drivers.  You can also visit the OPUS10 page for additional information. OPUS10 is one of the tools making up the OPUS Suite which also includes SIMLOX and CATLOC.
