Aerospace and defence is among the most demanding sectors of manufacturing. Quality requirements and regulatory hurdles are almost without peer.
Projects have a long lead times frequent scope changes and (for defence) secrecy requirements also complicate process innovation. Often engineering, inspection and regulatory processes represent the majority of lead time and efforts to improve flow and reduce costs need to consider these areas.
Both industries can expect significant growth in the Asia Pacific region in future decades with increased defence spending on significant capability upgrades underway and air travel now within the reach of millions of new consumers in the region.
TXM is especially qualified to understand the needs of this complex sector with several of our team having spent much of their careers working with leading aerospace and defence companies.
