The benefits of working with DEKRA

Integrated solutions for common challenges in the aerospace and defense value chain

Struggling to keep many balls in the air, aerospace and defense industry developers, manufacturers, logistics companies and support services providers are directly affected by shifting political alliances, trade tariffs, rising fuel and material costs, a lack of qualified engineers, new market competitors and shrinking capital sources. While dealing with a supply chain weakened by the COVID-19 pandemic, aerospace and defense companies are also tasked to provide demanding customers value-based products and services. Innovative technologies and digital solutions are transforming production and driving new business models, forcing partners up and down the supply chain to adapt smart strategies according to expected industry standards, strict governmental regulations and green sustainability policies.

Regulations demanding low emission rates put pressure on developers and manufacturers to design and produce innovative products compliant with sustainable practices and policy guidelines. While manufacturers must come to grips with evolving environmental policies pushing for more fuel-efficient hybrid or electrical propulsion technologies, diverse regional, national and international regulatory statutes can lead to high developmental and certification spending for several partners providing various services throughout the aerospace and defense industry. Qualified technicians and engineers are in short supply, creating high demand and driving up labor costs, while consumer confidence wavers due to safety concerns and new competitors emerge.

Sole-source providers are unable to meet increasing materials demands of manufacturers and top-tier suppliers causing delays and downtimes. Robust supply chain management strategies and systems must be implemented to effectively handle highly orchestrated and complex chains and support reliable end-to-end transparency ensuring sustainable production. Successful partners throughout the entire aerospace and defense industry are acutely aware of the demands created by the global digitalized business environment and are scrambling to implement digital tools and platforms to collect, process and store critical supply chain data.

Even the smallest advances in technology cost the aerospace and defense industry tremendous amounts in research and development investment. Digital transformation of the industry, bringing advanced robotics, additive manufacturing, reverse engineering, composites and virtual reality technologies to developers, manufacturers, logistics companies and support services providers, has added and extra layer of complexity to an already sophisticated business environment. Partners throughout the industry must adapt digital solutions to effectively communicate with business associates, manage supply chains, consolidate processes and safeguard systems and data.
