Aerospace & Manufacturing
Visibility is a keyword in the struggle for companies in the manufacturing and aerospace
industries to control costs in their supply chain in the face of ever-growing complexity
in supplier relationships. Greater visibility and real-time information on critical
supply chain activities and milestones can make a world of difference in helping
companies gain greater control over their supply chain.
The aerospace industry, consisting of commercial aerospace, regional jet, helicopter,
defense, general aviation, and space segments, represents a distinct set of challenges
for supply chain management tools. The aerospace industry deals with assemblies
and components that are typically complex in nature, a situation that is further
complicated by low procurement volumes and long sourcing lead times, creating significant
obstacles in expanding the supplier base.
As the lines between buyers and suppliers blur, the Imaginestics approach that balances
proven experience with the newest concepts in visual part matching and social networks
is helping companies in the manufacturing industry break out of antiquated ways
of doing business.
Our goals are to give buyers insight into the suppliers available to them, not just
with contact information but with comprehensive profiles of capabilities and past
performance, while at the same time giving suppliers a way to market themselves
to new companies. Our e-procurement tools provide real-time communication and transactional
data that cuts down on the time and costs associated with the entire sourcing cycle.
When used in conjunction with our productivity and cost advisory tools, ourVizSeek suite of products
provides end-to-end support for the manufacturing supply chain, with the added bonus
of being entirely accessible through a web browser.
