How digitalization accelerates supplier development – from bid to production
Today, aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) continue to shift the management of the development and manufacturing of specific components to their suppliers. This change is necessary to meet growing demand for thousands of next generation aircraft in the coming decades.
Supplier-created content represents 50%-60% of the value of an aerospace system. This means every supplier, regardless of its size, plays a critical role in a program’s success. As a supplier, how can you generate new capabilities or competencies to support program improvements?
Join us to find out how digitalization optimizes how you align with your OEM customers and learn ways to develop new business and enhance operations, from bid to production.
“We have a very strong market, and the whole supply chain needs to be much more digital to work together to reduce lead times and speed up the entire process of building airplanes.”
Executive Vice President of Engineering, Airbus Commercial Aircraft
