Across the Aerospace & Defense industry, rising customer expectations (lower costs, higher standards and increase capabilities) along with growing program complexity make it more challenging to compete.
As systems become more complex to design, build and deliver, OEMs and suppliers need to accelerate innovation, drive efficiencies and move to the factory of the future to allow for greater agility on production rate. This requires a new way to conceptualize, design, manufacture, test, certify and sustain new air and space vehicles.
Prospects for Aerospace & Defense companies appear bright with the continued growth of commercial aviation and the upturn of defense spending. Leaders must transform to navigate the landscape as new players use technology and non-traditional approaches to disrupt the mature aerospace industry.
