HiCo-ICS: Delivering Information Logistics
Integrated Logistics Support/Integrated Product Support has become a challenging factor in decisions for complex systems. Valid calculations and simulations are required to determine true Life-Cycle-Cost for maintenance and support during the in-service support phase.
HiCo-ICS is a leading vendor of specialized solutions for Integrated Technical Logistics Information Systems (ITLS) and innovative Service Information Systems (iSS) for shipbuilding industries and civil and military aviation and operators. The HiCo software solutions are optimized for operators, repair centers (MRO) and OEMs to maximize operations for complex technical products and systems. Efficient system integration services ensure up-to-date information over the complete lifecycle for your products and centralized access to information for Integrated Logistics Support (ILS).
HiCo products support internationally established ASD- and ATA-standards for Interactive Electronic Technical Publications (IETPs), Integrated Materiel Management and Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) such as ASD S1000D®/S2000M/S3000L and other shipbuilding standards.
