The past decade has seen the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) supply base assume increased responsibility from original equipment integrators from design, to manufacturing, to assembly. Simultaneously, integrators have reduced the number of suppliers they work with and asked those they retain to increase efficiency and reduce cost.
This is a great deal to ask, even in the best of times. Yet for a supply base slowly emerging from the economic downturn, these are far from normal times. As integrators place greater responsibility in the hands of the supply base, it is incumbent upon them to effectively predict, identify, and mitigate risk across the multi-tier A&D supply chain.
Accenture works with integrators and suppliers across the A&D product life cycle to manage the challenges of the multi-tier supply chain.
Accenture works with Aerospace and Defense (A&D) integrators and tier one suppliers across the globe to design, source and sustain extended supply chains. By combining our understanding of aerospace business process and financial requirements with leading analytic, supply chain and supplier management technologies, Accenture works with our clients to identify specific risks, implement processes and tools to mitigate risks and monitor on-going risk.
From strategic sourcing to managing engineering changes, from supporting supplier quality to implementing and sustaining vendor managed inventory programs, and from implementing analytics to using them to support program delivery and financial performance, Accenture understands and addresses the key challenges of the multi-tier supply chain.
Accenture focuses on providing targeted consulting, technology, and managed services to manage the multi-tier A&D supply chain.
