The Aerospace industry is experiencing major changes on each of its two main fronts. On the defense side, US economic conditions have led to drastic federal spending reductions on new military projects and contracts. In the commercial sector, trade barriers, increasing communication and transportation costs, together with stringent safety and quality control regulations continue to negatively impact operating costs.
New and complex engine programs, coupled with a vast and geographically dispersed supplier network, has caused significant delays in project schedules, costing OEMs billions of dollars in direct costs and credibility loss. As aerospace manufacturers seek to gain efficiencies in every facet of the product lifecycle, major advances in aerospace manufacturing are occurring at the software layer. From system controls to ground communication, software is playing an increasing role as highly specialized and safety critical systems require bug free code that is fully integrated with the underlying hardware platform.
OEMs who are able to execute high quality manufacturing, software and hardware engineering solutions will be optimally positioned to deliver more cost effective, reliable, and cutting edge solutions to the marketplace.
