Aerospace & Defense Manufacturing
In an era of constant change and transformation, A&D organizations are more focused than ever on incremental innovation and cost reduction as a way to gain competitive edge and drive profitable growth. Faster and Smarter Innovation is now the mantra for organizations who best respond to these challenges through more efficient R&D investment, better design and manufacturing collaboration and increasing visibility into the complex value chain of suppliers.
Focus on Digital and Advanced Technologies
- A&D companies continue to focus on disruptive technologies such as AI, bigdata, AR, 3D printing, universal connectivity, etc.
- Continued digital transformation but with a focus on low-risk innovation with trusted partners
Drive for Efficient Innovation
- Introduction of several new and more capable models stimulates demand and replacement purchase decisions.
- 50% of the models that will be delivered during the next two years are aircraft that were certified within just the last 12 months
Globalization of supply chain & Multi-tiered structure
- OEMs are pushing local KEY suppliers to expand globally and prefer their Tier 1s to create those relationships.
- Lack of supply chain visibility to OEMs can result in product delays.
How DFMPro Can Help
DFMPro enables engineering executives to make informed design decisions and identify and address downstream manufacturability, assembly, quality and serviceability (DFx) related issues during early design stage. DFMPro helps to capture and disseminate the industry best-practices and knowledge in form of DFx guidelines and brings in standardization across the organization
Improve Product Innovation and Operational Efficiency
- Develop High Quality Systems Designs – 70% of cost of product is determined at design stage and optimized designs have better impact on reducing costs
- Helps in removing inefficiencies and costs from all stages of the product lifecycle cycle to improve profitability and shrinking operating margins
Knowledge Capture and Reuse, Bring in Standardization
- DFMPro helps to capture and disseminate the industry best-practices and knowledge in form of DFx guidelines and brings in standardization across the organization
- Identifying optimum design alternatives at early stage helps to reduce cost of the product
- Avoid late engineering changes(ECs) and rework.
