Technology - Virtual Roundtable

Aerospace & defense supply chain risk management

19th October 2020 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm EST
How can Aerospace & Defense (A&D) manufacturers use Industry 4.0 technologies like cloud, analytics, and AI to improve supply chain resilience?

Demand for defense equipment continues to increase as global defense organizations continue to focus on military modernization, given increasing global security concerns. The A&D community continues to struggle with obsolescence, low volume production runs, supply chain visibility, and lack of legacy engineering expertise associated with the growing number of systems operating well beyond their intended life span. As if these obstacles were not enough, they now have to address challenges associated with COVID impacted supply chains and the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliance requirements.

CMMC compliance is called out in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) contractual flow down, through the OEMs and into the Tiered supplier network. Previous self-attestation and limited resources leave many suppliers in the DoD industrial base left wondering…where do we and our supply chain stand? Do we have the resources to be compliant? What is our liability as to the OEM and the Supplier?

Join Infor and an exclusive group of industry experts for an in-depth discussion on how to battle the disruptions, how to remain in compliance, and how technologies like cloud, analytics, and AI can improve supply chain resilience.
