In A&D manufacturing, there is no margin for error.
The aerospace and defense manufacturing industry faces a multitude of compliance requirements from both the U.S. government and internal standards. Requirements cover many areas across the supply chain, including materials usage, manufacturing processes, hiring practices and many other business areas. Depending on the business, an A&D manufacturer could be in scope of regulations covering everything from product compliance and corporate responsibility to vendor management and human trafficking.
Achieving and maintaining compliance in such a heavily regulated industry is a significant challenge on its own. To further complicate things, A&D manufacturers have many additional compelling challenges to navigate, including:
- Always-evolving regulatory landscape
- Volatile global trade climate
- Complex part & product composition
- Issues integrating modern data systems with legacy solutions
- Heightened need for tracking and tracing of materials, parts, products and shipments
- Razor-thin budgets and detailed reporting/audit requirements
Guide Technologies understands these challenges and helps aerospace and defense manufacturers meet them head-on with Infor CloudSuite Industrial vertical solutions and implementation support services.
