Aerospace and Defense Manufacturing: What's Shaping the Future?
February 16, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Both optimists and pessimists contribute to the society. The optimist invents the aeroplane, the pessimist the parachute" (G.B. Shaw) The aerospace and defense industry (A&D) has been at the forefront of digital transformation for years, using IoT sensors to track and assess performance and improve safety. Now, with demand for new planes and passenger capacity, some OEMs are considering not selling aircrafts and engines, but rather their performance via new products and services. Global industry leaders are gaining flexibility with an IoT approach and by upgrading technology infrastructure with AI, Machine Learning, 3D printing, cloud, analytics. Is it enough? The experts speak. John H. Schmidt, Accenture: “Show me the money” (Jerry Maguire, film). Torsten Welte, SAP: “The probability of success is difficult to estimate; but if we never search the chance of success is zero” (G. Cocconi & P. Morrison).
