Airbus harmonizes its global procurement processes with AirSupply

Matching themes: Aerospace, AirSupply, procurement

Airbus harmonized its global procurement processes with a very innovative, highly comprehensive initiative featuring AirSupply - and well-deserved earned a nomination for the German Logistics Award 2019
Airbus harmonized its global procurement processes with a innovative, highly comprehensive initiative featuring AirSupply, earning a well-deserved nomination for the German Logistics Award

The construction of an aircraft is preceded by a highly complex, sophisticated procurement process. Almost every aircraft at Airbus is unique – and consists of around one million individual parts. Managing this is a challenge in itself. It becomes even more complex when, as at Airbus, almost a dozen locations in Europe and Canada coordinate operational purchasing. In order to act more efficiently, Airbus has developed a four-pillar model in which AirSupply from SupplyOn plays a key role. For the impressive results of this digital transformation, Airbus was selected as one of three finalists of the German Logistics Award 2019. Read more
