We embrace complexity.

As a systems engineering company, Shoal knows that complexity in real-world problems can rapidly escalate. And despite projects and organisations becoming more complex, time schedules and budgets are diminishing. Reductionist approaches no longer work. Simplification is not the answer. This is why at Shoal, we embrace complexity. Our recruitment, professional development and project planning are underpinned by this ethos.

We understand smart engineering begins with smart decisions.

We focus on the early-stage of project lifecycles, developing a deep understanding of the problem and its environment. This approach, combined with systems thinking and rigorous engineering practises has seen our team lead development of the capability design for some of Australia’s largest and most complex systems in many industries, with focus on Defence and Transportation. In addition to this, Shoal has core capability in aerospace modelling and simulation, specialising in probabilistic range safety analysis of aerospace vehicles.

We solve the right problem.

Our clients’ projects regularly involve significantly large but undefined numbers of moving pieces that are interrelated and technically challenging. At Shoal, we crave such challenges. Embracing complexity and deep insight, we implement fit-for purpose and elegant solutions to deliver a competitive edge.
