Increase bid-to-win rates.
Today, small and medium Aerospace and Defense suppliers face significant pressure to improve gross margins, revenues and market share. The number of companies competing for business is rising while Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) demand higher production rates while imposing just-in-time delivery of parts and systems requiring greater production flexibility from suppliers.
Engineered to Fly allows small and medium suppliers to grow their business profitably from bid to delivery. Digital continuity provided by the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform reduces complexity to develop new bids, collaborate during product development and facilitate manufacturing ramp-up.
Now, Aerospace and Defense suppliers can achieve higher margins with the ability to reduce design time; increase quality as issues are identified early, reduce the number of duplicate parts and optimize for manufacturing.
