Aerospace and defense supply chain success story: The ten-thousand foot view
For our Friday case study series, we want to feature a couple of stories from our aerospace and defense customers. We know that in the A&D industry, not only is the supply chain complex, but so too are the products. A&D companies face low-volume, high-mix production, complex BOMs, and long lead times for parts — all of which makes on-time delivery to the customer ever challenging.
These companies are feeling the pressure to streamline manufacturing and business processes in order to decrease unit cost of production. When it comes to reducing inventories and maximizing engineering resources, the stakes have never been higher.
We want to share how these companies have turned to Kinaxis to help them face the challenges head on to and are seeing breakthroughs in operations performance as a result.
