collaboration for the European aerospace and defence industry
collaboration between companies has become critical to the competitiveness of
the European aerospace and defence industry.
On major programmes today, 70% to 80% of the value
is provided by different players in the supply chain, from a few OEMs (Original
Equipment Manufacturers) and Tier 1 suppliers to an array of more specialised
providers. The competitiveness of the entire industry hinges on efficient
digital collaboration within this extended enterprise, and with customers,
making standardised solutions and open standards a key factor of success.
BoostAeroSpace was formed by five major players
in the European aerospace and defence industry – Airbus, Dassault Aviation,
EADS, Safran and Thales – to support the digital processes and tools needed to make
this level of collaboration a reality.
