Keynote Presentation: Digitalization: The Crucial Advantage for The Modern Aerospace Program
Aerospace companies face many challenges in a time of increasing innovations in aerospace and defense, such as Urban Air Mobility, the drive to zero emission aircraft, new space startups, and new approaches to defense programs. The global pandemic has further increased these challenges as all industries have been forced to rethink, reimage and reinvent how they develop and manufacture products, while ensuring the health and safety of their employees. The Aerospace and Defense industry, already struggling with accelerating product development, manufacturing and certification programs, while effectively managing their programs and global supply base, is now faced with the need to change the fundamental ways in which they do business, while working to maintain development programs and continue to be innovative to ensure the future success of their business. Digitalization is emerging as the crucial advantage modern aerospace program?s need to turn all this rising complexity into a competitive advantage.
