The global Aerospace & Defense Industry is experiencing an increasingly challenging situation. A&D companies are trying to overcome the challenge which comes in the form of frugal customers and increasing market competition.This prompts them to control costs and shift their focus from innovation. The long product life cycles and regulatory compliance are other concerns which A&D companies are looking to address effectively.
The industry is in need of innovation and to reach the goals of a next-generation enterprise they will need to take advantage of the key tenets that have been enabled through the democratization of technology. HCL can leverage those tenets to help A&D companies generate exponential changes to enterprise business systems through Human-centered design led platform solutions that eliminate waste through Autonomics (AI & Analytics), drive rapid change with DevOps, innovation through the ecosystem and generate new business models through IoT.

Commercial Aerospace and Business Jets
The Commercial Civil Aviation segment involves configurations like a Double deck, Twin-aisle, Single-aisle, Regional Jets, Props, Corporate, and Helicopters. The very nature of the aerospace business is constantly seeking solutions for the needs of the global economy but rapid innovations in technology in the last few decades have expedited the process. The aerospace industry utilizes a tiered supply chain, with tier one companies supplying parts directly to OEM’s, level 2 companies supplying parts to a tier one supplier and so on. This is a typical supply chain structure for an industry in which the final product is composed of many sophisticated components, subcomponents, and assemblies. HCL has thought leadership to help Aerospace and Defense companies address these challenges. As an example, for prioritizing profitability, HCL can help businesses optimize a distinct business capability via analytics and thus better compete. HCL can also help the pressure A&D companies are facing in the supply chain by creating a reliable and efficient supply system through consolidation of multiple procurement platforms and having adequate systems for supply chain visibility.
