Digitization plays a special role in the defense sector, as both the manufacture and the development of products can take place in consortia. The central challenge is digital consistency (digital thread), not only of the company's own processes, but also of the supply chain of the value creation partners. The basis for this is the creation of digital twins of the company's own processes and the integration capability of the supply chain partners. This enables solution scenarios to be identified for increasing supply security, ensuring conformity and making optimum use of the company's own capacities.
Digitalization is also of great importance in Aerospace & Defense for meeting ESG targets. Without digital support, ESG compliance will only be demonstrated at great manual expense.
Organizations must also be empowered with digital competencies to master the necessary transformations. Digitization does not only mean the introduction of technologies, but also the adaptation of organizational structures, the qualification of employees and the integration of new skills. These new skills and organizations offer the opportunity to retain new talent in modern workplaces.
