Aeronautics and space

Stay competitive in a context of strong acceleration and increasing customer demands

The aeronautics market is based on a significant number of orders for civil aviation. Shared-risk joint venture contracts have increased among leading construction engineers and suppliers, which has had a strong impact on their ability to finance their R&D and profitability.
In addition, orders from emerging economies are often accompanied by a locally-based strategy, forcing industry players to globalize their presence and partnerships.

In a context in which innovation and cost reduction have become obligations (simplification of aircraft, reducing fuel consumption, reducing the carbon footprint, etc.), the survival of sector players involves the constant search for savings and an adaptability by the organization to challenges in the medium and long term.
The major challenges that industry players face are:

  • maintaining strong R&D with a controlled ROI
  • developing their service offering to construction engineers and airlines
  • integrating suppliers and subcontractors within their innovation policy
  • improving the profitability of their programs
