Next-generation operations can help companies unlock significant value by improving both margins and productivity. The new opportunities arise from ongoing improvement in three areas:
- Connectivity, which facilitates faster, more informed decision making
- Artificial intelligence, which provides new insights to drive ever-increasing optimization
- Automation and new technologies, which enable innovative tools, processes and business models
Aerospace and defense (A&D) companies are discovering many use cases where these levers can produce big gains, and they are launching many pilots, with the goal of implementing them across the organization. But too many A&D companies find themselves stuck in pilot purgatory, capturing great returns within individual groups or functions but unable to scale their efforts. We have extensive experience with operational transformations and can help companies overcome the obstacles that keep them at the pilot stage. As they progress to company-wide implementation, they could achieve double-digit improvement across value drivers.
