The Private Jet Industry
An unexpected explosion of growth in 2020 leads to ramp up beyond
From corporations looking for alternate ways to transport key personnel to individuals chartering personal jets for travel, small jets are in high demand.
Along with this surge in usage, private jet OEMs face additional challenges. With supply chains disrupted by COVID-19, private jet manufacturers will need to consider new suppliers. Working with the right supplier can alleviate the unique stresses of our current global economy – and position private jet OEMs to take full advantage of the unique opportunities that have surfaced in the industry. To do so, however, means addressing some complex issues to meet this rapid demand.
- 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 OEMs like Dassault, Beachcraft, Textron and others, working with the right supply partner can do much to alleviate the stress associated with these challenges.
