Don’t forget to apply!

The offer

To retrieve a quick review of security checkpoint operations leading to a concrete set of outputs such as process improvement and direct OPEX reductions. Point FWD is capable of delivering a tangible output against a lead time of approximately one month for a fixed price fee.

This offer is subjected to limited availability. Our advise: respond quickly.

What may it entail?

The services provided as part of our AvSec check-up may cover various topics of interest, including, but not limited to:

  • Process / CONOP review and improvement review

  • Checkpoint baseline performance and KPI assessment

  • Checkpoint capacity modelling

  • Business case for change implementation

  • Operator training program review

*All output directions will be substantiated with a cost/benefit analysis, with a focus on potential OPEX reductions or process KPI improvement, such as efficiency level or process capacity.

What do we need?

A few components are needed as starting point for the short-term consultancy agreement, that may include, depending on the focus:

  • Specific and output-driven operational challenge.

  • Situational drawings of the checkpoint situation.

  • Configuration of screening equipment.

  • Work instructions and SOPs.

  • Staff planning and operational schedules.

  • Available checkpoint performance data*

*Point FWD’s in-house data handling tools such as the Checkpoint Insight Tool may be used to gain the relevant checkpoint process data.

What is the investment?

The intention for the short term consultancy agreement is to offer maximum value for a fairly small investment. Investment can vary per assignment, but the idea is to never exceed €5,000. This ceiling amount enables us to keep it straight forward and deliver quick identification of concrete operational improvement points with direct OPEX saving opportunities.

Practical setup

  • A mutual non-disclosure will be initiated, including the common goals, before getting started for the short term assignment.

  • This is a non-binding agreement that ends after delivery of the engagement.

  • To keep it a short term project, we require one dedicated point of contact to be available for the time of the project.
