Originally published in Aerospace Tech Review Magazine, March 2020 issue

 

According to David Grasso and Chris Brumitt, despite advances, the aerospace and defense industry still lags behind in taking full advantage of digitization, and still needs to move aggressively towards adopting cultural change and adopting new technologies such as predictive analytics.

Key insights from the article include:

  • Digitization of the supply chain does not start with the technology; it starts with a new business model and processes
  • Benefits of digitization go beyond cost savings, and include creating sustainable growth and becoming more agile and responsive
