Aerospace and defense customers require the highest levels of performance, quality and reliability, and products must adhere to the stringent contract and regulatory requirements. The OEMs must achieve all this while interacting with a global design and manufacturing supply chain involved in all aspects of business, including purchasing, engineering, compliance, quality and manufacturing. This poses significant design and collaboration challenges that the OEMs must solve, while also being under great pressure to get products to market faster.

Our solution provides a digital thread approach to managing interactions with suppliers and partners, whether they are inside or outside of our PLM environment. It allows OEMs to coordinate processes and manage information, both internal and external, across all stages of the product lifecycle. Supplier information can be managed in context with the overall facility structure to provide holistic views of a facility or operation. These tools enable early supplier involvement in product development and provide visibility into accurate supplier information across departments.

Our reliable supplier analytics lead to better decisions about purchased components, increased productivity, and reduced risk of non-compliance.
