itelligence – the full-service IT provider for SAP headquartered in Bielefeld – assembles these basic conditions together and implements these in its new solution it.aerospace. According to Carsten Müller, who is responsible for industry sales for the aerospace industry, “Increasing demands on quality and timeliness, shorter lead times in development and production, falls in prices on the one hand and enormous cost pressure on the other hand, describe the significantly changed general conditions of the aeronautical industry. it.aerospace creates transparency to grow further in international competition, from development and planning on through to production.”
A key measure taken by the aircraft manufacturers to cut product costs is optimization of the entire process chain: from the development and manufacture of semi-finished goods through final assembly of the aircraft. This global integration will integrate the suppliers more closely into the processes of the aircraft manufacturers. Only those suppliers that can be engaged significantly more intensively as risk-sharing partners will survive.
it.aerospace provides a wide range of default settings for these relevant processes and documentation for the optimized and quick introduction of SAP solutions. The itelligence solution also offers sophisticated product lifecycle management with integrated project and document management functionalities as well as integrated change and quality management functions. All internal and external supplier chains and logistics tasks can be mapped directly in it.aerospace using pre-configured process steps.
This solution’s end-to-end approach includes clear project methods which cover comprehensible and extensive business scenarios with master data and variable data with processes that can be executed immediately as well as detailed project and user documentation with user roles for the key workstation descriptions. In addition, it.aerospace offers ready-made data sheets and tried and tested proposals for data transfer and test guides for customer-specific function and integration tests with proposals for the most common formulae.
