Building the effectiveness of the actual internal Industrial Base capabilities as well as capacity to meet long term Safety and Economic requirements with the UAE
UAE Industrial Base Strategy
This document is conceptual in its nature, along with outlines the particular need to offer a more robust industrial base inside the particular UAE based on the present political, geographical, military as well as economic environments that exist. Also, the actual must give you the current as well as future military using the required supplies and techniques that will might be produced within your UAE, to end up being positive the internal along with external security of the UAE. Your general premise is to create the conditions, the actual policies, the particular procedures, and in addition the national will; for you to set up an interior industrial base over time and power to produce the particular essential military major end items, equipment along with sustainment materials necessary to keep a viable armed force.
This document articulates the overall need, desire, rationale, too as some regarding the major tasks that will will be necessary so as in order to carry this sort of the concept for you to fruition. The Particular document also articulates the actual complexities with the tasks necessary in order to bring your present industrial base towards the degree of performance by which it could supply the defense force your required supplies and also equipment to become able to ensure its security, without relying upon manufacturers and furthermore the industrial base of some other nations. Additionally, it addresses the massive integration strategies required for connecting the countless parts and sectors with the UAE Society, for you to include; government ruling bodies and also governmental agencies, the particular armed forces, industries, the actual educational systems, industry associations, in addition to global, along with multinational industries, also as critical infrastructure requirements.
Adopting the national strategy this complex inside its nature, and also with the extended timeline in which will be required, to end up being able to understand your real institutionalization of an industrial base capability and capacity pertaining to producing the right types as well as proper quantities associated with military equipment for you to ensure National security would call for in a minimum:
• Lengthy term vision and political will
• Long-term economic commitment
• Tenacious follow by means of over many many years
• Superior organization along with management
• International staff regarding experts to always be able to negotiate as well as facilitate
• and single agency control in the highest amount UAE government
This single agency would have to get total control over the actual planning, execution, integration, coordination, danger management and also concluding decision authority regarding almost all matters involving the economic base; also as access to the highest amounts associated with government, to be positive the continuity with the political will and furthermore the economic realities, upon which key industrial base choices should be based. Such as the capitalization regarding important industrial base facilities, whether it can end up being a joint use facility producing both civilian and military items, will it provide an export capability and is also there a new globe or regional share of the market that will could be penetrated; together with the competition analysis necessary for you to penetrate globe markets in order to ensure the cost-effective achievement involving industrial base ventures.
Major success factors and considerations:
In order to accomplish a program associated with this magnitude, would need integral planning and the integration of your rational logical road-map that might link the particular concepts along with requirements to be able to desired outcomes. Your use of a logic pyramid represents an example of making use of the actual elements provided.
This pyramid represents the key alignment associated with goals, objectives, strategy therefore forth essential to ensure success, and also represents a logical linkage in between everyone of the particular elements which provides continuity for the strategy. Pertaining To example, the entire objective would always be to provide UAE your means necessary to ensure its internal security, without having relying heavily upon others. in order pertaining to this to become accomplished you may find a pair of main objectives which will need to become fulfilled. First, any unified industrial base, the base within the actual UAE which is synchronized as well as targeted to supply both inside peace as well as in conflict your necessary equipment for you to sustain the military throughout meeting their particular military missions; although with the same period getting capable of produce goods along with services which are marketable on the entire world market. Second, can be self-sufficiency, this is having the necessary raw materials, labor, manufacturing facilities, management and planning, and also engineering assets within the actual country, and dedicated for the country, in order to support the industrial base and its efforts to guide each its civil along with military requirements.
In order to possess each a new unified industrial base as well as self-sufficiency, there must be a quantity of strategies in destination to facilitate both these ends. Your strategies consist of national partnerships; they are important partnerships together with nations and companies ready to partner to create the particular internal capability with the UAE also to maintain in which base. These kind of partnerships could consist of key elements involving technology transfer, as well as setting up of joint ventures with most the aim of institutionalizing your technology along with manufacturing processes required for that growth involving the economic base. Additionally, we add the concept associated with self-development in which in turn the expertise gain from the UAE educational systems, entrepreneurial systems and industrial innovation get together for you to produce new ideas, factories, and production in which assistance and also sustained your specific industrial base.
As the actual strategies are generally devote place, you will find variety of tactics, which we could use in order to facilitate along with enhance the potency of the actual strategies. These types of techniques might include strategic alignments within the industrial base and also within the actual companion base. This sort associated with integration provides synergy involving effort along with far better outcomes in which decrease prices thereby, creating efficiencies as well as effectiveness within the economic base. Various Other techniques involve procedure standardization along with variance manage thereby, permitting your manufacturing processes to become predictable and also increasing top quality levels which in turn increase the danger for item much more marketable upon the entire world markets, creating higher marketplace share, along with higher returns upon investments. Additionally, encouraging boost investments within the UAE industrial base, that will hold the impact of stabilizing the industrial base as well as the economy, although with exactly your same moment increasing capacity.
Throughout the actual style along with buildup associated with the economic base Arms Industries
there must be a new normal applied to become able to all the engineering efforts to ensure stability and consistency not merely associated with the average person production elements, but in addition the actual integration with the industry's elements into 1 synergistic effort. for this logic pyramid, we've utilized the actual regular engineering concepts in which in addition connect with processes as well as style that will directly affect the economic base they are:
• Simplification: looks in order to simplify processes, designs, and also manufacturing layouts along with routines to be able to maximize efficiencies and to create Lean Manufacturing.
• Standardization: enables the overall method and initiative for you to implement economies by simply carrying out like things the identical way. This reduces the time it will take to be able to standup new as well as just like process utilizing the same plans, tools, as well as processes. Standardization furthermore permits the efficient use of statistical methods, like 6 sigma, that increase quality, minimizes waste, as well as increases profits.
• Integration: brings synergies towards the industrial base through the actual mixture of just like industries, similar to processes, along with inside the reduction of production steps which usually eliminates opportunities pertaining to error inside your manufacturing processes. Reduced variation raises reliability which minimizes costs.
• Elimination: associated with non-value-added actions within the economic base as well as inside manufacturing processes. Reduction inside procedure steps decreases the danger and opportunities pertaining to errors.
• Automation: creating manufacturing as well as industrial base reliance by simply taking out the "man within the loop" manufacturing; simply by automating these processes as well as actions within the particular manufacturing and also industrial base processes. Automation enhances simplification along with standardization too as integration. Just About All of which in turn raises reliability and also reduces costs
In order to end up being able to ensure smart application involving any initiative within the industrial base, a standardize methodology wants being established to provide composition towards the overall process. one such methodology can be depending on 4 steps which usually are; design, deploy, operate, and sustain. This specific structure is layed out much more fully, as well as discussed in much more detail later on in this paper.
In supplement into a structure methodology, there features to become a consistent management technique which in turn has as the absolute minimum a likelihood to design, plan, control, and also evaluate the total industrial base initiative its direction along with its effectiveness. From a minimum, their requirements to become portfolio as well as pipeline management, resource management and program/ project control.
A national industrial base strategy that's this big as well as complex, requirements to become deeply rooted in the political base of the UAE, to get any hope of the measure involving success that will provide the return about investment (ROI) after which return on equity (ROE) that's expected or perhaps required. Additionally, economic and economic measures like richesse budgeting techniques, as well as risks/return tradeoffs, together with operating leverage considerations, will must deployed and utilized inside the entire UAE governmental budgeting process, also as commercial monetary markets.
The government will also have to regulate, control, and also comply with international law within regards for you to arms/military manufacturing and sales; also as international treaties dealing throughout arms trafficking along with weapons of mass destruction (WMD's).
The economic dedication which will be required through the nation to become able to ensure successful implementation of the military/civilian industrial base complex within the particular UAE will most likely be substantial and also long-term. In Order To achieve the entire stated aim associated with UAE Safety via an interior unified industrial base along with self-sufficiency within the manufacture of the particular products or services to keep the Armed Forces; the particular UAE dedication to any multi-generational time frame initiative just isn't only imperative, however paramount.
A Main aspect within the achievement of such a significant national strategic initiative, is planning to be the actual management along with manage composition that's inside place to ensure completeness as well as correctness regarding all the efforts related to be able to this endeavor. the management cycle briefly discussed here, offers any cursory take a glance at just a few involving the main elements that will will be required to end up being able to establish, manage along with execute a national strategy to be able to integrate military production into the industrial base. This particular management cycle consists involving 6 main steps, all involving which must be accomplished if successful and effective management is to consider place. each step lays the foundation for the succeeding steps, which gives the mechanism for that general success. The note needs to always be able to be created here, that the operation is merely nearly as good as the people who are involved within the process, along with for a national strategic initiative as essential as the modernization involving the commercial base extremely qualified and also dedicated leadership and management that possess a long-term dedication and a vision regarding good results is going to be required.
The initial step, is to set up your management and cultural environment essential to set your groundwork for that strategic initiative. This particular step is realized in the highest quantity associated with a UAE Government, together with key political as well as economic leaders making a clear vision as well as framework necessary to set up a key strategic initiative to maneuver the economic base via its existing state to the desired future state. Important actions would include complete as well as comprehensive assessment involving present UAE industrial base along with its capabilities along with capacities. Additionally, assessment in the future needs should be accomplished that establishes your present and also long term threat circumstances as well as the capabilities that will are required to satisfy those threats and have these needs translated directly into weapons as well as methods that need being produced through the industrial base. These kind of assessments are usually accustomed to set up a clear vision associated with the path ahead, as well as the assignment of missions and strategies too as goals, tasks, along with goals necessary to attain the required outcomes along with changes in the industrial base.
Additionally, from this time and also IO marketing campaign must be initiated stating the requirement for adjust as well as soliciting executive financial sector and also management assistance for the strategic initiative, to incorporate resource allocation for you to initiate the perceived strategic effort also to execute the particular macro planning process, as well as the organization with the agency as well as its crucial leadership. When this is been completed, and in addition the main program strategy has been mapped, to incorporate a obvious critical path proven with milestones and timelines assigned, we are ready to end up being able to proceed to be able to step two.
The 2nd step, is the organization of the methodology as well as the assistance systems necessary to begin implementation with the national strategy. Crucial elements include: the particular composing involving policies, your institution involving communications as well as monitoring systems, as well as the environment regarding standards. This kind of needs assembling the best team of people, using the proper training, along with experience, to organize and also execute the vision and also missions formerly developed. the effort wants to fill out the corporation in its key leadership positions in which is planning to be responsible for the implementation in the strategy. With this time around it is actually essential as well, to assigned equipment and also techniques that will is planning to be used within the implementation. This is paramount for you to make certain that key methods and also equipment required for the management, details flow, as well as information management, be on the web and available to ensure orderly, as well as timely flow, regarding information, data, as well as communications. A New important element will be changes inside the educational techniques in the elementary, secondary, as well as university level in such programs as finance, business, management, and engineering, that will generate when compared with subsequent generation regarding technical along with management experts to carry on your implementation throughout the many years in order to come. A New key element will also be the establishment of curriculum and an educational system that will concentrates on producing experts within acquisition, procurement along with life-cycle custom modeling rendering particularly for you to military weapons and also systems. That They will provide the backbone regarding military acquisition management system and the interface towards the national industrial base. Acquisition and procurement will give a critical hyperlink inside the strategic initiative and also will require a full review and also realignment too as integration in to become able to a material acquisition management plan that will supply for and control, management, education, plus a total lifestyle cycle regarding items which the economic base will produce. Within order to become successful it shall need thorough coordination and also input via many sectors of the UAE governmental as well as industrial complex.
Step three, moves towards the management of work, and furthermore the institution of the executive board's as well as sector advisory boards from the distinct government departments along with sector associations necessary to interface with all the initiative. The Particular key element is also the particular portfolio steering group or perhaps committee which can be the particular choosing physique which determines that applications, weapons, along with systems, that will be integrated in to always be able to the program with the strategic industrial base and gives authority regarding plan start-up. An extra essential a component of step 3 is actually pipeline control. This pipeline management may become the controlling of, the when as well as where, applications as well as projects key in to the national industrial base strategy, to end up being able to make certain that the some occasion and effort is many beneficial aligned along with like goods as well as services, the actual existing manufacturing capability and capacity, and also have the greatest mix regarding partnering, joint ventures, monetary and also political support, advertising analysis and complete life-cycle management plans.
Portfolio throughout pipeline management provides your apex inside the management of aspects of a critical industrial base infrastructure. This is thru the actual portfolio and pipeline the which the particular executive as well as management team can greatest utilize along with implement the actual sources obtainable towards the UAE in just about any particular point in time to maximize output, investments, economic manage along with planning factors, as well as maximizing the synergies of multiple industrial complexes, crossing multiple sectors more than extended periods associated with time. Its objective can be simple, to set the right products, in the best places, inside the right industries, regarding the best time, in order to steer clear of duplication, rework, and raises throughout cycle occasion necessary to carry production capability along with capacity online.
Step four, will always be the execution of plans developed by the programs and projects, as well because the integration in the pipeline manage plans in to implementation action, that include the management systems, enterprise procedures as well as processes, every one of the tools, techniques, training, automated operation, and also expert systems needed also as being a formal reporting construction to include metrics. Step four represents the particular significant execution regarding work, alongside having its day-to-day management metrics, performance standards, and the Info data Systems, needed in order to ensure effectiveness and efficiency in the execution in the plans, developed by means of the actual portfolio stirring team your pipeline management efforts. This particular needs in depth planning, and also cross coordination in order to ensure multiple enterprise sectors, in inclusion to multiple sector sectors along with governmental agencies is actually synchronized along with coordinated. This may count on a new complex internal information technology network where almost all important players possess visibility over, as well as an comprehension of the complete strategy inside its present as well as long term implementation status, thereby providing real time decision capability to the agency along with key leaders along with management.
Step five, may end up being the evaluation of performance, which include a overview of the particular applied metrics regarding all of the particular applications and projects, the strength of the particular pipeline integration, the entire effectiveness of the portfolio within meeting the actual national safety requirements; as well as the continuing report on best practices, available to ensure effectiveness and inefficiencies within the national strategy. This particular is a important step inside ensuring and data as well as details are obtainable in realtime towards the national leadership, too since the plan leadership detailing overall movement any shun progress divides the window associated with constant review along with approval of the intended portfolio along with pipeline choices also as their effectiveness during a replication. It enables course correction inside steady review, and in addition the achievable removal of applications which usually aren't meeting your potentials as initially assessed in order to modify and also redirect, modernize and also update because the circumstances require. This provides leadership in any way levels and successful means of managing for you to make specific that products and services presently underway are increasingly being considered along with implemented as well as continually reviewed, for relevancy appropriateness and also meeting your criteria involving cost, quality, and delivery.
Step six, is the feedback loop that consists involving all the reporting as well as briefings to the national leadership, shareholders and partners, and the review and refinement of the entire strategic initiative along with its movement toward the assigned vision, mission, and objectives. This particular step supplies a critical hyperlink between every one involving the steps of the process, and supplies for a continuous improvement road to ensure that all enterprise elements remain centered around the vision and the national will. Step 6 supplies a high quality manage loop which ensures another five steps are usually contributing towards the general process. The idea provides for your fine tuning regarding the process along with techniques for you to management of most areas of function and provides the actual lessons discovered vehicle to become able to ensure that involved inside the general strategic procedure understand in which the procedure needs to be improved to generate the required efficiencies.
Step six, also offers a validation for that systems details as well as data appropriateness and also usefulness to the program in providing the data essential for successful management and control. This specific results in the smart upgrades and also safety required to ensure that the info methods applied for the strategic initiative remain secure although providing the info and also information necessary for that daily decision creating process.
For all of the actual steps and all of the sub-steps as discussed in the Management Cycle, as well since the processes as well as systems, it takes a life-cycle methodology in order to control as well as execute just about all of the micro parts of the management steps pertaining to danger management also to ensure completeness. Your four crucial stages or perhaps elements associated with this lifestyle cycle approach include:
Enablers to these four principal operating spheres of influence include: planning, technical solutions, education as well as metrics.
The application of each with the steps in the life-cycle method helps ensure, that the product, service, systems, or application is sufficient, and it has your utility required, throughout meeting whatever performance objectives assigned.
Linking every 1 regarding the steps collectively in to 1 industrial base, is truly a strategic formation template. This kind of template, can be utilized to link the actual strategic formation using a logic Pyramid that represents all with the significant steps and considerations necessary for completion, and offers the actual macro actions that needs to be considered. This is linked towards the management cycle, which outlines the particular actions what requirements being managed as well as completed to ensure success. Each the logic pyramid and the management cycle are generally executed by the considerations contained within the life-cycle technique which supplies your complete scope methodology to ensure almost all considerations are usually designed for each of the actual actions as well as activities formerly outlined. Since these management methods along with processes are executed, critical aspects are usually identified and may then be stratified in to critical achievement factors, which is actually often analyzed to spot breakthrough goals as well as objectives that allow the management team to become able to prioritize activities which in turn supply the greatest return upon investment or even increased National Security. Whenever this is completed coordinating using executives and staff related to people breakthrough objectives along with objectives are able to be produced to recognize the actual synergies associated with effort because capabilities along with capacities essential to satisfy the future safety as well as economic wants of the UAE.
This Linking or perhaps interconnecting methodology is actually a management method to make sure that the plan remains focus, streamlined, as well as effective all through its existence cycle. Additionally, it provides you any widespread understanding as well as template, in order to that almost all get-togethers connected using the strategic initiative can be familiar, leading to far more successful as well as timely communication with almost all of events involved. The idea provides the particular unifying road-map which assists people remain targeted on the ultimate aim as well as objective regarding securing UAE security by means of the industrial base, and also its ability to fulfill the wants in the armed forces.
In summary, the particular concept of developing the national industrial base strategy with the purpose regarding infusing industrial capabilities in to the manufacture regarding products as well as services to satisfy military needs within the particular UAE industrial base is sound. Making the actual ability to be self-sufficient throughout providing for the security regarding the nation can end up being a significant risk reducing strategy. However, the actual execution in the concept is quite complex having a myriad regarding interrelated and competing interests along with activities; involving the diverse population regarding both military along with civilian's, governments, corporations, associations, industries along with philosophies. Therefore, success will require strong leadership, excellent vision, tenacity, outstanding planning as well as management as well as the vast majority of all any structured system which includes the particular essential authority, duty along with capability to affect the necessary changes required for you to implement the UAE military/civilian industrial based national strategy.
