How to Manage an Aerospace Supply Chain using Software

A commercial jet aircraft has millions of individual parts and a supply chain that covers multiple tiers, from raw materials to the finished product.

It’s a supply chain that can be spread across numerous companies globally, specialising in different parts and components. To complicate things further, each component might be part of a subset that is being developed by a different supplier, and so compatibility issues between parts may surface.

With such a complex supply chain it’s easy for things to wrong, especially when you consider the thousands of people who might be involved in the development of a new aircraft.

By using a software package that improves communication, eliminates design and development errors, speeds up time to market and reduces costs along the way, managing the supply chain becomes much more efficient.
