Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality, documenting interfaces and requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system verification and validation.
We are immersed in the latest technology developments from space systems, to aircraft, to high altitude balloons, to driverless cars, to unmanned systems of every type; even submarines. Our team has recent and relevant experience.
We have been called upon by the U.S. Department of Defense, intelligence agencies, major research labs,
Trained as U.S. Military test pilots and aircraft/space systems engineers, we are experts in the art of critical thinking. Our solutions are balanced and thought-provoking.
Our approach is based on years of making complex military systems for the Department of Defense into simple systems for the warfighter to use.
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) utilizes systems models to replace the document-centric nature of typical Systems Engineering (SE). The artifacts necessary to describe a system, interfaces, functions, architecture, requirements, and operations become views of the system model. MBSE moves the record of authority and Technical Baselines from documents to digital models.
As an integral member of the Naval Air Systems Command Systems Engineering Transformation Team, AVIAN significantly transforms typical document-centric SE digital systems models for development. AVIAN has developed core digital engineering practices, policies, and processes, as well as thorough academic training, by introducing approaches, techniques, and the tools necessary to establish the digital trinity within any organization.
We're shaping the Digital Ecosystem by creating integrated development environments, utilizing agile methods, and enforcing open-source architectures. Within the Digital Trinity construct, AVIAN maps MBSE principles to the Digital Thread, where the resulting digital artifacts are considered the Authoritative Source of Truth, used for decision-making throughout a system's lifecycle.
As a Digital Engineering (DE) enabler and trusted practitioner, AVIAN facilitates DE consulting and MBSE training programs for our government and industry partners. Our in-house courses, including "Systems Engineering Bootcamp," "Systems Engineering for Program Managers," and "Fundamentals of Systems Modeling Language," represent prime examples of AVIAN's support for workforce and industry adoption of MBSE best practices accelerating our customer transformation into the digital engineering age.
To support rapid growth, AVIAN has created a DE systems lab where access to the latest technologies is available for advanced development and training. This unique environment allows us to experiment with COTS and open-source solutions combined with a flexible DE host environment.
Our SE lab acts as a controlled laboratory environment enabling MBSE and DE methodology development, tool selection, and integration testing to bootstrap a program's host environment, allowing immediate design and sustainment activities. Called "OpenSLAB," it lays the foundation for future DE capability, bringing environment management, modeling-simulation, analysis, and design collaboration to a single point, offering organizational solutions which can be implanted with only a few lines of code.
Predictably achieving targeted levels of system product quality and overall product integrity performance is a critical capability required in realizing NAVAIR’s mission to delivering capable, available, and affordable weapon systems to the Naval Fleet.
AVIAN provides a complete portfolio of product quality/product integrity training courses specifically developed and tailored to support NAVAIR’s Acquisition and Sustainment processes focused on fulfilling this mission.
Our training courses are designed to enable a continuing cultural evolution of Quality Management that shifts an organization from a reactive “find & fix” paradigm to a proactive “plan, predict, prevent & protect” approach by embracing the proven fundamentals of the three universal quality management processes; Quality Planning, Quality Control & Quality Improvement.
We subscribe to Dr. Edwards Deming’s belief that every business management system is perfectly designed to give you exactly what you are getting today, and we know from this belief that continued advances in product quality and product integrity can only occur when the organization collectively advances past being simply managers of results and evolves to becoming managers of systemic causes of results.
With this in mind, we offer product quality and product integrity overview courses for Acquisition and Sustainment Executive Leaders, Managers, and Quality Practitioners such as Engineers, Quality Assurance Specialists, Quality Control Inspectors, and Quality Auditors.
In addition, to support various NAVAIR workforce development strategies we have developed quality certification tracks that provide independent formal recognition by one of our qualified trainers/examiners that an individual completing a selected certification track demonstrates a proficiency within, and comprehension of the requisite training track body of knowledge. These certification tracks include;
NOTE: An applicable Quality Basics course is required as a prerequisite for the certification track courses.
We immerse ourselves into the IT world to help create new solutions and solve your system issues. No matter how big or small the issue, we work our hardest to find the best solution and keep the systems running at top levels.
We inspire our teammates to go above and beyond when it comes to system issues. We look to solve the issue and find ways to prevent them from happening again. We inspire our employees to find ways to make the everyday tasks easier and quicker. Whether we write a new script, develop a new process or train others to better their understanding, we make sure to make best use of not only our time, but the customer’s as well.
We use fierce resolve to buckle down and make sure we find the “root cause” of every issue. Even if it means we go above and beyond, we make sure that we can answer any question thrown our way.
We immerse ourselves in your world to connect, understand and appreciate the challenge from your perspective. No two challenges are the same, and no one-size-fits-all answer is perfect.
We inspire your team to envision your complex challenge as a simple question needing a logical answer. We change their ‘issues’ into ideas and their ‘concerns’ into thoughts. We enable creativity that breaks your team’s patterns and changes their focus thus invigorating their desire to answer the question.
We use fierce resolve to redirect organizational energy towards the new vision, the new solution, the new focus until it happens.
We are skilled at finding the exact talent and technical expert a customer is looking for. When a chief engineer from a Fortune 500 company called us looking for a leading expert on lightning
that talent fueled with passion drives performance and creativity.
your need for proactive, productive and proficient support from people that can work independently; to unburden you so you can focus on future success.
