The aerospace manufacturing industry has been hit harder by the 2020 pandemic than other industries. With one of the most complicated global, interconnected supply chains, aerospace companies are now in need of cost savings, efficiencies, and security solutions to help them once again fly.


In 2018, aerospace was facing a supply chain crisis with tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers unable to fulfill orders. The inventory slowdown was compounded by safety concerns after several tragic accidents, and most recently, the complete systemic shutdown due to the pandemic. Once again, tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers are under stress to meet an expected demand after massive layoffs, plant closures, and with uncertain financing.


Aerospace Supply Chain Future

What does this mean for 2021 and beyond? Aerospace will see a slow return to normal as the public and global commerce return to the skies. This will generate a need for new planes and parts for maintenance.


With a 9-12 month build time, and parts coming from around the globe, the aerospace supply chain will see benefits from a unified and integrated community they can speak to in the same data language, and for that data to be accurate and actionable.

Aerospace OEMs and Suppliers Struggle with:

  • Part authenticity and regulations

  • Moving and tracking parts and racks from suppliers to OEM manufacturing facilities

  • Expected time and location tracking (JIT)

  • Supply chain disruption risks

  • Sourcing of raw materials

  • Expected quantities

  • Expected quality condition

  • Cost containment

  • Sustainability goals

  • Incomplete and inaccurate data that cannot be shared throughout the system

  • Tracking and moving finished goods during production within facilities

  • Security against fraudulent and counterfeit parts

  • Meeting government regulations in multiple countries

Until now, aerospace supply chain problems have been difficult to solve. With security and verification of parts one of the most daunting challenges, this supply chain requires a connected community willing to work together, implement block chain for provenance and identity, speak in the same data language, and for that data to be 99.9% reliable, accurate and actionable.


Surgere has solved the problem with a tested, scalable, and flexible supply chain management process based on IoT-sensor based technology that provides 99.9% data accuracy and fidelity, Surgere blockchain technology, and patented software secured by the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
