What’s Next for Aerospace & Defense

What’s Next for Aerospace & Defense

There’s no question that 2020 was a year of significant change for Aerospace & Defense. While we did see major downturns in air travel and related markets, it was still a year of remarkable milestones for the industry and there are signals of recovery in 2021.

Some of the actions that we’ve seen companies take to weather the current storm are the same steps that will position them to be more competitive and innovative in the future. All organizations are focusing on fundamentals in order to lower costs, achieve on-time delivery, reduce turn times and engage more effectively with their customers. To that end, there has been substantial restructuring, both M&A activity as well as supply chain reconfiguration, in order to find more value, gain efficiency, and become more resilient.

We’re also seeing companies embrace more digital technologies, in the back office, on the manufacturing floor, and to support field & aftermarket service. These include investments in digital engineering tools, IoT infrastructure, and big data platforms to enable adoption of new production capabilities and technologies. Digital transformation is also going to be necessary to meet regulatory goals such as the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification for the U.S. Department of Defense and the European Union’s aim to have zero-emission aircraft by 2035.

Join Infor as we talk about what’s ahead for commercial aviation and the defense industrial base, including the global space economy and emerging platforms for urban air mobility.
