Industry 4.0 Driving Growth in Aerospace and Defense

Aerospace & Defense 4.0 refers to the use of Industry 4.0 technologies in the A&D industry to develop new cost-effective products and services, make existing products smarter through sensors and connectivity, and leverage advanced manufacturing processes such as additive manufacturing goals.

Fremont, CA: Industry 4.0 technologies have the potential to unlock future competitiveness. There are a strong and compelling rationale for aerospace and defense (A&D) companies to harness these technologies and implement digital transformation across their business. Technology-driven by Business 4.0 can have an impact on every organization in the A&D industry, from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to small suppliers. However, not all businesses appear to be making use of new technologies, whether to increase sales or improve profitability. Designing new goods and business models continue to be a big problem for most A&D departments.

Moreover, despite the use of Industry technologies in factory manufacturing and supply chains, many A&D firms have been sluggish to adopt broader digital transformation programs that cover the entire company. This is due to the fact that several organizations in the industry have noted that they have not made Industry 4.0 a priority across the company, preferring to invest in individual, focused technology projects. Limiting digital strategy to a few company areas may increase the danger of A&D firms falling behind in today's digital economy. As a result, it is critical that organizations across the sector comprehend and harness the potential of new technologies in order to capitalize on the opportunities presented by the Industry 4.0 change. To realize the benefits of these technologies, A&D firms, particularly mid-and small-sized firms, should start small but scale enterprise-wide. Instead of considering new technologies as a supplement to established procedures and procedures, A&D executives should reconsider how they conduct business with such technologies.

Some A&D firms are already recognizing the revolutionary implications of these technologies. They are investigating tremendous potential value across a range of dimensions, from cost reduction and supply chain restructuring to reducing time to delivery and connecting devices and products across the board.
