The $900 billion aerospace industry has traditionally operated within siloed structures, with each function focused on ‘maximizing’ the outcomes for itself. That has led to a lack of feedback loops across design, manufacturing, and supply chain.

The threat to global supply chains by the pandemic and the opportunities offered by the industry 4.0 technologies have created new possibilities. These include structured data flows, next-level automation, and supply chain reconfigured for resilience and flexibility.

Discover the current state of the Aerospace industry and how the five key shifts triggered by the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) are opening the market for innovative supply chain solutions and service providers— from a panel of highly respected industry veterans and an industry analyst who participated in the recently-held Virtual Think Tank event.
