Industry 4.0 for Aerospace & Defense Industry Brochure
Aerospace & Defense Manufacturers have to deal with fluctuating demands which makes it very difficult to plan for manufacturing and meet the promised delivery dates. There is constant pressure due to margin shrinkage, which drives the need for adoption of new technologies & processes to manufacture aircraft with the best quality at the lower cost.
Industry 4.0 is key to drive operational excellence at all levels with the latest technologies in the IT-OT Space for Aerospace & Defense Manufacturers.
Key Challenges of Aerospace & Defense Industry
- Improve manufacturing process by simplification & standardization
- Reduce assembly times and cycle times
- Reduce lead times and keep the promised delivery dates
- Realtime design & Manufacturing integration for real-time decision making
