Across the Aerospace & Defense industry, rising customer expectations along with growing program complexity make it more challenging to compete.


As systems become more complex to design, build and deliver, OEMs and suppliers need to accelerate innovation, drive efficiencies and move to the factory of the future to allow for greater agility on production rate. This requires a new way to conceptualize, design, manufacture, test, certify and sustain new air and space vehicles.
