Digital continuity: The pillar of digital transformation in the aerospace industry

To meet the challenges of the next decade, the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry will have to equip their products and resources with digital continuity throughout the entire life cycle.

Organizations across all industries are facing challenges to develop complex products that require strong collaboration across domains and disciplines. The A&D industry is no exception. Geopolitical issues, supply chain disruptions, and material shortages are some of the issues adding new complexities within development and production lifecycles, making it difficult to accelerate timescales and optimize operations to respond to new orders.

Transforming the industry means transforming the way data is managed and unifying the use of data across the entire aerospace and defense sector.

As a digital enabler, digital continuity will accelerate the transformation of the supply chain and ensure the efficiency, consistency, orchestration, and compliance of new products on the market, industrial resources, and associated services.

The massive influx of big data in today’s world brings with it a wealth of potential. However, the control of this data and the management of the information system is also a challenge.

This industrial and digital transformation will therefore have to be accompanied by strong program management as well as an evolution of the skills of professionals in the field.
