Aerospace & Defense
Three driving forces are impacting aerospace and defense businesses, leading to the reconfiguration of their supply chains and accelerating the digitization of planning and execution processes: First, disruptions such as the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change-related government regulations and changed consumer awareness and preferences. Second, the sudden effect of increased military spending led to a shift to other product groups with different life cycles. The third force is the shortening of product life cycles and new technologies such as electric propulsion and hydrogen fuel cells, impacting R&D, product lifecycle and data management, and supply chain and manufacturing operations.
Supply chain risk management, end-to-end network planning, and synchronized plans and schedules are now becoming key requirements.
