Allan Webb Ltd is proud to have been continuously supporting for the past four years a highly valued UK Military Project: the General Dynamics Land Systems – Force Protection Europe (GDLS-FPE), Foxhound project.
Allan Webb’s proven and experienced codification operation and management has provided sustained support with integral parts data for the Foxhound Vehicle.
Our Technical Publications and Illustrated Parts Catalogue (IPC) Departments have worked closely with GDLS-FPE to introduce the latest operational and maintenance changes for the vehicle, based on in-service feedback and design changes. In response to a recent requirement, data was created by working closely with their engineering team to derive suitable descriptive and operational data. This included the creation of mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic content for the main vehicle control systems. To support the vehicle operational systems, the teams have also worked with GDLS-FPE on advanced surveillance equipment, electronic and software systems, and the myriad of vehicle structural features.
Our experienced Technical Publications authoring team works alongside GDLS-FPE, with regular contact on technical/spares issues and creates data matching the required build standard and design changes applicable to the vehicles in service. Working with their Computer Aided Design (CAD) models, our talented Illustration team interprets graphical design details and vehicle breakdown structure, creating easy to interpret graphics for the users which assist, or even speed up, maintenance practices. In cases where sudden design changes have affected the vehicle, Allan Webb staff attend Verification & Validation exercises to ensure resultant documentation matches exactly the processes proven by GDLS-FPE and their end customer. This reduces risk and timescales during creation of support documentation.
With this experience on the Foxhound project and many others of a similar scope, Allan Webb is able to provide maintenance and operational data for vehicle designers, manufacturers and organisations reworking vehicle platforms. Our cataloguing skills enable us to quickly interpret vehicle or systems parts breakdown to create tailored spares ordering solutions. In the commercial sector, Allan Webb is able to offer this service with possible dealer interface systems and web-based delivery solutions.
Allan Webb also supports marine and aircraft related systems using the same team methodology used on the Foxhound project. This methodology enables us to successfully support army vehicles, army static systems, naval and marine craft and aerospace equipment with logistics support data and maintenance manuals/parts listings. As we work closely with client design and engineering teams, we are able to develop training data by adaptation and reuse of support documentation. This ensures training topics align with the maintenance and support data, reduces risk and saves time in the creation phase.
