A leading engine manufacturer for both the military and civil aviation transport markets wished to innovate supply chain operations and reduce cost. The scale of the customer’s operation presented challenges as solutions would need to work across 100 different countries.
The customer’s defence business unit has many thousands of engines in service with customers in over 100 countries. In the civil market, their engines power more than 35 types of commercial aircraft with many thousands in service around the world. With so many engines and parts in service the customer needed full end-to-end supply chain visibility and a fully digitalized supply chain.
We delivered a series of integrated services to the customer including Supplier Management which catered for bookings, performance and compliance.
