Aerospace and Defense
Consulting Services

Aerospace and Defense is one of the most consequential sectors of the American economy. Today more than ever, A&D companies must ensure that their production is fluid, their supply chains are robust, and their internal processes can support industrial stressors.

Pushing the Limits of Aerospace and Defense

The A&D industry is a constantly shifting landscape of government and corporate contracts, subject to uncertain levels of funding, timing and termination. Additionally, the A&D industry has been subject to geopolitical and economic factors beyond anyone’s control over the past several years.

Looking towards the future, demanding emissions expectations loom on the horizon as the price of nearly every input is on the rise. A&D manufacturers will need to be vigilant to protect projects from both internal and external threats. Manufacturing bottlenecks need to be anticipated and mitigated to ensure timely delivery and relationships up and down the supply chain must be strengthened.  

However, for all the difficulties presented by the current climate in A&D, the opportunities for growth are equally impressive. Commercial aviation is well underway to returning to pre-pandemic levels, and governmental investment in defense continues its unabated growth.
