When it comes to the defense industry, high-performance solutions are a necessity. The supply chain of an Aerospace & Defense company must have full visibility and a centralized solution to effectively address each of their issues. The biggest challenges are mostly the multiplicity of their activities, the variety of their suppliers and clients, and their handling of inbound and outbound shipments.
In every industry, the ultimate dream is to have a consistent growth thought the years. All companies thrive to consolidate themselves while expanding their business, their client portfolio and, of course, their profits. But sometimes, growth can bring more trouble than expected. In industries such as high-tech, with the continuous changing of technology, a rapid market growth can demonstrate some limitations such as lack of visibility or no control on warehousing and transportation costs. It can even show a redundancy, as the same problems continue to arise time and time again.
In any manufacturer’s supply chain, spare parts and finished goods play a key role. Both ends of the sequence requires a correct and optimized management, so that a group of little parts can become something bigger and ready for its final destination. Distribution Centers have a main role. They need to be data integrated, correctly operative and have full visibility to manage the inventory levels.
