Description

Aerospace Supply Chain networks are inherently complex and the act of making a strategic choice between producing an item internally or buying it externally is not one to be taken lightly. Large aerospace companies have varying degrees of business strategy and commitment to the supply chain and understanding their perspective helps smaller businesses better position themselves to grow and succeed as partners. Addressing the strategic and tactical risks associated with the issues impacting the aerospace industry and its global and domestic supply chains is important to understanding the opportunities that exist. Important considerations include the Make-Buy process, standardized certifications across the industry, and demand planning to ensure all parties succeed. Increased communication and discussion around manufacturing supply chains and the aerospace industry can hopefully be proactive in solving problems with current suppliers, diminishing capacity or changing demand.

Top Three Takeaways

  • How do larger companies evaluate the Make –Buy decision and what are the factors influencing those decisions?
  • How can potential suppliers ensure that their capabilities are highlighted and understood by buyers?
  • Can companies avoid ‘loving their suppliers’ out of business though improved communication and demand planning?
