Today’s Aerospace and Defense supplier networks are facing more pressure than ever before from their customers. The record deliveries and back logs experienced by Aerospace companies and the cuts in DoD spending among Defense contractors have both required these industries to consolidate and place higher demands on supplier networks to improve manufacturing efficiency, quality, security, and compliance initiatives.
With the stakes raised, A&D suppliers that meet these customer demands through a demonstration of robust quality systems, as well as risk-mitigating, traceability, and regulatory compliance capabilities will retain and win business in these highly competitive industries. Today’s market leaders are achieving this by moving away from managing quality in silos and bringing together product, process, and performance data from Enterprise Quality Management Software (EQMS), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) and other enterprise systems to establish an integrated approach to quality management.
During this free webinar, LNS Research will draw upon research responses from over 800 industrial companies to identify and highlight key leadership, business process, and technological capabilities for elevating quality management in the A&D supply chain.
Attendees will learn:
- Key challenges and objectives of today’s A&D companies
- Tips for building robust and auditable quality systems and traceability capabilities for critical regulations such as OSHA, REACH, and ITAR
- Best practices for implementing closed-loop quality processes to improve products in compliance and other key metrics
