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.
