Aerospace and defense (A&D) programs are massive efforts with numerous challenges. Marked by technical complexity,budget constraints, and strict regulations, A&D programs are often plagued by disruptions that result in cost and time overruns.
The aerospace and defense sector is entering a period of significant change, driven by the need to create more sustainable aircraft and reduce the industry’s environmental impact. At the same time, the certification process– and the safety it ensures– remains an essential concern for every aerospace and defense company. As these companies strive to improve sustainability and maximize safety, they must also contend with the increasing complexity of their systems and products. Companies must efficiently coordinate engineering work across multiple domains to address this challenge while meeting project deadlines and controlling costs. They must also work closely with other vital stakeholders in their procurement, manufacturing, and service departments and integrate the efforts of suppliers and original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
The complexity of E/E systems architecture is growing at a startling rate in the automotive and aerospace industries.
This brief offers more detail on the issues driving increased complexity in the automotive and aerospace industries. Then it explores the rising need for collaboration across supply chains and engineering teams to mitigate complexity, and discusses the role of SaaS solutions as a powerful enabler.
Developing and delivering products as a smaller aerospace supplier is no easy task today. Many issues make it more difficult for smaller aerospace suppliers to succeed today. Digital Transformation initiatives offer a path to counter those issues.
This report compares development processes run with traditional approaches with those converted by a Digital Transformation initiative.
Aerospace suppliers globally are dealing with product development challenges unlike anything they have seen before, including increasing cost pressures from OEMs, decreasing project timelines, and demanding industry regulations. In this webinar, Chad Jackson talks about how aerospace suppliers are countering these pressures with Digital Transformation initiatives.
