Run Simple Sessions for Aerospace and Defense @SAPPHIRE NOW 2015

The future of the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry requires simplification. From defense contractors operating under budget cuts to commercial aerospace manufacturers scaling up production due to massive backlogs, A&D firms must simplify their operations while continuing to innovate. However, A&D firms often struggle with this due to significant complexities such as:

  • Inability to effectively design, innovate, and manufacture new products and services
  • Inability to respond quickly enough to changing business demands driven by new technology and customer trends
  • Overly complex, non integrated recruiting, training, and knowledge-sharing systems to hire, promote, and retain a qualified workforce

Going forward, manufacturers must streamline existing operations and increase operational capacity while building aftermarket service business revenue, managing and maintaining a changing workforce effectively, and providing innovative products to stay competitive.

At SAPPHIRE NOW 2015 you are going to see a lot of sessions addressing the need for simplification. This also includes the following 11 sessions you shouldn´t miss as they have been specifically designed for our A&D audience visiting the show floor from May 5-7 in Orlando.
