Aerospace & Defense

Accelerating innovation while delivering on time, on cost and on schedule.

Aerospace & Defense Challenges

The aerospace and defense (A&D) industry is characterized by complex specifications, moderate volume and long lead times. Hindered by limited visibility and functional silos, companies must work harder at ensuring sustainable product quality with robust commitment management and delivery performance. A Simulation Digital Twin provides the right fit for these challenges in determining an agile, resilient supply chain built with existing capabilities, for manufacturing efficiencies.

Our solutions for the Aerospace & Defense Industry

Production Planning

Design a Simulation Digital Twin of your supply chain and optimize your production plans to deliver value at every stage of your manufacturing process. Manage supply, production and demand to achieve operational efficiency and increase profitability.

Strategic Sourcing

Design a Simulation Digital Twin of your supply chain network and virtually simulate any scenario, compare various sourcing options and anticipate potential cascading and bullwhip effects of several risks which could impact final service and inventory levels.

Asset Optimization

Build an optimal OPEX/CAPEX asset investment plan to replace and renew obsolete equipment and control risk exposure. Include real-world constraints, understand their impact and bridge the gap between operational and financial views to identify the right strategy.

Benefits for the Aerospace & Defense Industry

  • Improved end-to-end supply chain visibility Gain greater visibility into A&D operations across the supply chain. Gain full visibility on supply chain interdependencies, cascading effects and risks in order to identify the best levers for optimal decisions.
  • Plan for the right capital investment Simulation allows you to see the future impact of investing in assets, people or technologies on your KPIs. Mitigate against potential risks ahead of implementation.
  • Anticipate supply chain disruptions Customer demand, suppliers, logistics networks...all represent uncertainties in your supply chain. Include these uncertainties into the model and simulate the impact of these real-life elements on your supply chain.
  • Simple & fast scenario management Agility in the A&D industry is about making well-calculated strategic decisions, fast. Develop and run new what-if experiments when conditions look to be changing while factoring in constraints and immediately see and respond to the effects.
  • Quickly identify vulnerabilities and disruption points Prepare for continued global supply chain bottlenecks. Assess all links in your supply chain, identify potentially weak ones and react accordingly.
  • Cost optimization Improve your S&OP process and find the optimal production plan balancing the tradeoffs of profitability and service goals.
