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
