Aircraft, helicopter, satellite or equipment manufacturers, their competitiveness initiatives must be led in the strict respect of the safety requirements without degrading mass commitments and ensuring robustness to severe aeronautical and space environments.
They operate in a market where competition is global and their positions in the value chain are regularly challenged.
Whether they propose complex systems or catalogue equipment, IAC accompanies them to win new markets and increase their margin, by activating all the levers of competition within their activities via robust and proven approaches specific to the aerospace sector.
The goal is twofold:
-Evaluate the competitiveness of your equipment in development, serial life or end of life.
-Define and prioritize projects to improve competitiveness with the highest ROI.
Design modular and versatile product families with optimized time-to-market and minimized specific adaptation costs
In the upstream phase and up to the CDR milestone, manage your development costs and arbitrate cost / performance trade-offs.
Structuring of the steps to optimize the overall budget of a program (RC and NRC) during the short time of the plateau phases to differentiate itself from the competition and win the tenders. Enhance customer specification requirements, offer trade-offs and make internal figures more reliable.
Conduct value analysis of budget developments and propose organizational optimizations to improve efficiency. Implement innovative operating modes on recent project tasks.
Optimize your program schedules by identifying alternative development logics in a Value Stream Mapping approach. Supervise your clients’s interventionism after the start-up and secure execution by implementing innovative Lean Engineering management practices.
Punch actions to restore margins or respond to aircraft manufacturers’ requests for lower prices, via Redesign-To-Cost post-qualification & post-certification initiatives.
Develop test strategies that minimize the full cost (current and non current) of your control and test plans. Challenge the added value of each test step and calculate the ROI of the means implemented.
Set up cross-functional competition actions to reduce your purchasing commitments by using a wide variety of levers: technical, sourcing, supplier workshops, etc.
Explain the market applications of your technical innovations, and implement relevant criteria and methods to select innovations for development.
Define a robust and transverse Innovation process for your organization and support your teams during its deployment.
Refound your repair business strategy (flat rate, predictive maintenance, etc.), develop your internal repair doctrine and reduce the full cost of your customer support activity.
Identify and exploit the concrete benefits of additive manufacturing to increase the value of your products, reduce the cost of your operations and accelerate your projects.
Deploying a methodology within your organization to control costs from the design phases: setting up the target process (activities, milestones, deliverables) and building teams’ skills through training modules.
