Future Pioneers: How Aerospace And Defense Has Always Driven Us Forward
Since its inception, the aerospace and military industry has continuously evolved. Any discussion of the effects that the digital transformation may have on this sector will probably focus more on sharing best practices than on recognising the difficulties they confront.
The aerospace and defense industries have established excellent precedents for innovation and digital transformation that we can all follow. The broader lesson, though, might be more philosophical in nature: Organizations must constantly change in order to remain competitive and advance.
Two such examples:
● In order to "revolutionize space technology, with the eventual goal of enabling mankind
to live on other planets," technology entrepreneur Elon Musk founded SpaceX in 2002.
The business creates, produces, and launches rockets and spacecraft in addition to
being a technology disruptor in the aerospace and defense sectors. Whether it be in its
industrial engineering operations or in its efforts to realize its vision of developing an
interplanetary transport system, the corporation is always changing.
● William Boeing witnessed the inaugural flight of the Model C, his first production
airplane, over Lake Union 100 years ago. Boeing was created. Boeing has had a
significant impact on space flight, commercial and military aviation, as well as providing
air transportation for humanitarian missions all over the world, since the flight of that first
production aircraft. Manufacturing is undergoing a widespread digital transition, which is particularly pronounced in the aerospace and defense sectors. While every manufacturing will experience digital transformation in a different way, all manufacturers will encounter change. Make sure you have thorough change management methods in place regardless of the digital transformation you have previously proposed or are now working on. Put yourself in a good position to benefit fully from your digital transformation activities with no negative impact on growth, profitability, or productivity.
