BAE Systems Multiple SitesWritten on September 4, 2020
BIS have been supplying critical parts and consumables to multiple sites within BAE Systems for over 30-years. The challenge is to persuade a rigid global supply base to support flexible manufacturing consumption of over1,200 Defence standard (Def-std) specified items. Many with significant off-shore lead-times. Shelf-life management is essential to negate waste, whilst obsolescence management is fundamental to ensuring business continuity.
BIS has aligned its internal system to complement BAE’s complex scheduling process; to generate performance, non-conformance and transactional data. An established continuous improvement program drives cost and efficiency benefits.
