A complex environment
3,000 satellites beaming signals from space, 100 helicopters built each month, 1 plane landing every second around the world.... these figures alone illustrate the scope and complexity of the aerospace industry today. The value and extremely precise purpose of certain parts, the multitude of destinations, the globalisation of procurement and maintenance, and heightened pressure to cut costs mean aerospace industry supply chains are increasingly governed by just-in-time processes and after-sales performance commitments.
