The location and the timing has changed – but the excellent setup prevailed: this year, the 7th Aviation Forum took off at the beginning of November – this time on the grounds of the Hamburg Trade Fair.

Compared to the previous year, even more exhibitors and visitors attended the leading aerospace event in Germany. The Aviation Forum, organized by the Institute for Production Management (IPM) under the patronage of Klaus Richter, Chief Procurement Officer Airbus, offered an international gathering of speakers and exhibitors from Japan, Russia, Canada, USA, India and Abu Dhabi.

A survey among suppliers lists the pivotal points for a stronger digitalization of the aerospace supply chain

The aerospace industry has a larger international footprint than almost any other sector. Ranging from individual connectors to the completed aircraft, the supply chain often spans the entire globe. In times of ever-closer collaboration and ever-tighter deadlines, the level of digitalization should actually be extensive. Actuall.

Our recently published study presents a somewhat different picture. Read more

The Supply Chain Excellence Initiative is committed to a stronger networking of the German aerospace industry in order to increase its global competitiveness.

150 people attended the fourth “Supply Chain Excellence” forum that was held in Gilching on March 9, 2017. It was certainly the right location – close to the German Aerospace Center and the special operations airport in Oberpfaffenhofen. The forum was organized by bavAIRia e.V., which joined together with other regional aviation associations and clusters, the German Aerospace Industries Association, partners from industry, and SPACE Deutschland to form the Initiative Supply Chain Excellence (SCE).

“Get IoTized” – this was not the official motto of the conference held by the Competence Center Aerospace (CCA) in Kassel, Germany, on February 28, 2017, but it appeared to be the leitmotif of all the presentations at the event. This began as early as the welcome by German Economics Minister Brigitte Zypries, who is, among other things, a strong advocate for the expansion of broadband networks particularly in industrial parks in rural areas of the country to create a technical foundation there for Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.

Digitalization of the aerospace supply chain – the dream and the reality

Matching themes: Aerospace, AirSupply, Digital Supply Chain, Supply Chain

Research on the digitalization of the aerospace supply chain
The study on the digitalization of the aerospace supply chain highlights a need for action

70 percent of respondents in a new study on the digitalization of the aerospace supply chain say they are convinced that digitalization can be advanced only if all parties use the same system. But the reality proves to be different. More than 80 percent of the respondents confirm having to use multiple portals to communicate with customers – and this, even though approximately 90 percent of the respondents were convinced that the multitude of different portals undermined the positive effects of digitalization.

The continued digitalization of the supply chain across all levels – as the study also clearly found – is viewed as being one of the most important measures for mastering the future challenges in the aerospace industry. Read more
