Does success also come with these challenges?
The Harris Corporation has only strengthened its position as one of this country’s largest defense contractors, merging with L3 Technologies in 2019 to formally become L3Harris Technologies. This combination of talent and capabilities has not slowed the company’s growth as L3 Harris has been awarded contracts in recent months for several large programs including helping to modernize the military’s space infrastructure, developing a new radio for the Marines, and providing unmanned intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) services to U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM)
While such growth is viewed as positive, it comes with challenges too. Scaling up a workforce, integrating operations, and accounting for logistics needs are only a few. In addition to these challenges, teams at L3Harris Technologies have the reoccurring obstacles that need to be dealt with daily. Among these are:
- Supply Chain Complexity created by limited visibility in seeing the true reality of entire extended supplier network in terms of capacity and material availability
- Line of Balance Analysis that allows clear visibility into supply chain alignment and unit delivery in order to monitor the predictability of delivery and revenue
- Engineering Changes being managed in multiple systems which then makes it difficult to determine the impact of such changes on the supply chain
- Forecast Adjustments due to schedule changes that become extremely time consuming when trying to accurately predict resulting outcomes
- Product Complexity created by part variations or engineering change orders that complicate managing bills of material (BOMs) for multiple programs
- Supplier Performance without benchmarking that makes measuring supplier performance difficult especially under Indirect Spend categories
For operations, procurement, and engineering teams at L3Harris Technologies, working with the right supply partner can do much to alleviate the stress associated with these challenges.
