How do suppliers increase efficiency from bid to delivery?

Today’s Aerospace and Defence supply chain require greater agility and increased performance. Achieving ramp-up to meet high production rates requires innovative leadership. Small and medium-sized companies must find a way to efficiently put data, information, and industry knowledge to work to deliver profitable growth.

Driven and controlled execution, operational efficiency and digital continuity across disciplines offer a lean, efficient way to deliver to target. Dassault Systèmes Engineered to Fly solution helps companies integrate their engineering processes from the proposal phase downstream through engineering, manufacturing and all the way to delivery.

Discover the values of the Engineered to Fly solution:

  • Driven and controlled execution for secure intellectual property (IP) while collaborating with multiple original equipment manufacturers (OEMs)
  • Enhanced operational efficiency leveraging real-time project execution, predefined templates and automated processes
  • Digital continuity optimized with dedicated solutions for each major design class : covering processes from design engineering to manufacturing and production

Digital Continuity enables project improvements up to:

  • 30% Error Reduction
  • 40% Productivity Boost
  • 40% Process Changes Requested

Improve operational efficiency and proposal development by using a single platform to help increase collaboration across teams and pro-actively manage the time-constrained bidding process. Engineered to Fly enables end-to-end knowledge capture throughout the proposal process to help ensure repeatability and reusability.

Accurate, real-time costing data is available to all team members, supporting new business acquisition. Proposal team members can reuse templates and company intellectual property (IP) from existing projects. Simulations can help improve selected designs for performance and manufacturing. Developing designs working with downstream functions can help companies better meet customer requirements. And, because Engineered to Fly maintains full customer requirements and decision traceability, time that used to be focused on proposal activities can now be put towards product innovation. Companies using Engineered to Fly help reduce their risk because higher fidelity proposals can better meet specifications, and they enjoy the confidence that they can successfully deliver the program as promised.

Lean practices, such as reducing hand-offs across teams, reusing standard rules and templates, and improving change management contribute to enhancing operational efficiency. Digital continuity from the concept phase through to manufacturing removes silos so engineering teams refer to a common reference. Companies have the ability to use this single source definition to achieve early design optimisation and increase collaboration across disciplines improving quality and time to market.

Digital continuity changes the game for companies which design or manufacture aerospace parts and systems such as machined components, composites, sheet metal, mold and tooling, electrical and hydraulic systems and more. Driving processes in a connected way allow suppliers to deliver on time, on budget and on target.

Delivering to commitments requires centralised management of all program data, key processes and related technology. All of a project’s interrelated functions must be managed as a cohesive whole to reach delivery-to-contract and profit.

Suppliers of components and small equipment alike have the ability to improve project execution through a driven and controlled approach, including a real-time status of full traceability for certification authorities and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers.
