The defense and aerospace industries share many characteristics, one of the most significant being their complex global supply chains. Managing these, with customers who may be spread all over the world with highly variable requirements is a major challenge. However, having the physical infrastructure in place to deliver what the end-user needs is only part of the story – the organizational tools that make it operate are just as important.
