Supply Chain Reinvention

Drive integration to improve visibility, on-time delivery and first-time quality.

Inspiring New Horizons in Aerospace & Defense

Learn how increased competition is driving the aerospace industry to accelerate programs from "concept to takeoff."

Increase pressure on suppliers

Today, supplier-created parts and content represents 50%-60% of the value of an aerospace system. Relentless price pressures and doubling of air traffic in the next 20 years are forcing Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and tier 1 suppliers to reinvent their supply chain to improve visibility, on-time delivery and first-time quality.

Today, suppliers need to improve OEM’s visibility and integration to adapt to this new world or risk losing business as aircraft manufacturers insource high value added activities and reorganize their value chain to effectively compete in the aerospace market.

Transform the entire supply chain:

Picto > Remote Centers > Dassault Systèmes®
Connect across organizations, functions, and companies worldwide to using a single System Digital Mockup (S-DMU) to drive down development costs by as much as 60 percent.
Picto > Design Optimization > Dassault Systèmes®
Increase on-time delivery through shared development of strategic plans, inventory targets and resource plans.
Picto > Visibility > Dassault Systèmes®
Avoid potential manufacturing issues through real-time alerts of plant disruptions, bottlenecks and the root cause of production delays across the entire supply chain.
Picto > Proposal Compilation > Dassault Systèmes®
Increase profitability by creating and comparing multiple scenarios quickly and accurately to find the most profitable outcome.

Improving OEM and Supplier Collaboration

Manufacturers, like Boeing, Airbus, Dassault Aviation, Turkish Aerospace Industries, and other leading OEMs, are now leveraging new software platforms to work collaboratively with suppliers to design new platforms, update exisiting aircraft programs, modernize production systems and deploy new services. This transformation efforts significantly improves the agility of the entire supply chain, improves first time quality and significantly lowers costs.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the digital continuity needed to seamless connect OEMs and suppliers to improve visibility, on-time delivery and first time quality. Suppliers can interact seamless with OEMs to design components, integrate systems and keep manufacturing activities in sync to avoid potential slowdowns of production.
