Accelerate digital transformation to achieve new levels of efficiency, resilience, and quality
Common aerospace & defense
challenges by role
- “Government budgets make up large share of our market and is becoming more and more volatile”
- “Our market research on leading indicators is disconnected from our supply chain plan”
- “We have uncertain OEM rate increases”
- “Structural changes are leading to change in air traffic demand (business adopting remote working, “flight-shame”)”
- “I have too many blind spots on my upstream capacity”
- “I have Limited visibility on Tier 2 & 3 supplier plans for upcoming recovery. Limited visibility on Supply Chain resilience.”
- “We have low planning process maturity / inflexible planning processes compared to other industries”
- “It is difficult to forecast spare parts (cannibalization from other grounded equipment, …)”
- “Airframers and tier 1sSuppliers resourcing production internally due to collapsing demand.
- “It is taking days/weeks to tell me if a plan change is possible”
- “Many of our tier 2 & 3 suppliers are facing risk of bankruptcy”
- Our S&OP deck takes too much time to build and is out of date by the time we have our meeting”
- “Financial What-if scenarios are out of date by the time we can get them done.”
- “We need a better long-range plan for new assembly footprints”
- “Our spare parts inventory is out of control and needs to be optimized”
Aim big, start small, iterate rapidly.
