To successfully manage aerospace supply chain networks, it is essential to tackle special challenges. Efficient processes in complex, international networks require thinking that spans departmental and even corporate boundaries in customer/supplier relationships.

Expectations are high when it comes to the digitalization of the supply chain: Read more
A little over one year ago, Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW) selected SupplyOn’s AirSupply solution to improve the aircraft company’s ordering processes with its most important suppliers.

The weather was rainy, but information was hot: this year’s PNAA (Pacific Northwest Aerospace Association) Aerospace Conference in Lynnwod, WA, was again the “place to be” for aerospace decision takers who want to know towards which destination the industry is moving to: Located closely to the Boeing plants of Renton (production of all 737 family aircraft) and Everett (wide-body production, including 787), the PNAA had the biggest participation ever, with 500+ participants.
This year’s PNAA topic was “Flying into the future” and 180 member companies joined. They did a good job in including the “young ones without the grey hair”, as PNAA chairman Bill King announced. Read more

‘Keep on Flying – Made in Germany’ was the motto of the 10th BDLI Regional Forum held recently in Friedrichshafen. Under sweltering temperatures – even in the early morning – the day began with a choice of visits to local aviation companies, such as Airbus Defence & Space in Immenstaad, Diehl Aerospace in Überlingen, Liebherr Aerospace Werk Friedrichshafen, Ziegler in Bermatingen, and ZIM Flugsitz in Markdorf (a tour of the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen was also on offer).

Visibility to suppliers and clients is crucial for producing aerospace companies who want to successfully manage their supply chains and approach their customers. For sure, there are only few events which allow to meet during a very limited time so many business partners in one location. If, in addition we talk about the world’s biggest Air Show, with a lot of innovations, then we talk “Le Bourget”. Read more
The “Quality 2015” event of Management Circle at Düsseldorf (March 10 – 11, 2015) was a high-quality experience: Almost 100 participants did a good investment, being able to learn how quality experts from research / different industries opened their “treasure chests” and shared openly how they managed quality challenges mostly inside their organizations, sometimes even going beyond the own organization.
Valuable traditions need to be cultivated, especially in challenging times. This is definitely true for the SpeedNews in Beverly Hills: For the 29th year, SpeedNews held its Annual Commercial Aviation Industry Suppliers Conference in Beverly Hills, California, on March 2-4, 2015.
Aircraft and engine manufacturers shared about the status of their current programs and industry experts, including equipment manufacturers, material suppliers, aviation analysts, financial institutions, marketing executives and solution providers discussed current hot topics in the Aerospace industry.
Mastering the Momentum – this was the topic for this year’s Pacific Northwest Aerospace Association Conference (PNAA Conference), which just finished today at Lynnwood, State of Washington, in the Northwest of the United States – very close to Seattle and even closer to the Boeing Everett plant, where the aircraft Boeing 747, 777 and 787 are being manufactured.
