Aerospace companies rely on Boyum solutions for better and accurate manufacturing and logistics, aligning with supply chain partners, improve their capacity planning, and get real-time insights into their supply chain. Here are some of the most common challenges we see in the Aerospace and Defense Industry:
Accurate product costing is cumbersome and time-consuming
Quotation accuracy is critical to your profitability. Inaccurate product cost can occur when manual processes or external systems are involved in calculating it.
Productivity improvements thanks to the optimization of resources
Bill of material complexity and multi-constraint production resources such as machines, tools, and labor skills, can be challenging when needing to provide accurate delivery.
Integrated system and manual processes
With data in multiple locations, paper forms are consuming your employees’ time and are prone to errors. An accurate warehouse operation is impossible.
Accurate inventory management
For high-tech companies such as aerospace, it is necessary to keep track of inventory throughout all stages of the logistics chain (inbound, internal, and outbound). Only in this way will they be able to ensure product safety and effectiveness.
Complying with industry quality standards is a critical business process
Companies in a highly regulated industry like aerospace need to guarantee that they are operating according to the highest and most stringent industry quality standards. This requires documented evidence integrated with ERP, manufacturing, and logistics systems.
Serialization and product traceability
The need to deliver trusted products requires Aerospace companies to manage traceability at various levels. Batch and serialized item management are vital to ensure full backward and forward traceability and act immediately if a product has to be recalled.

The need for a real-time and accurate view on inventory
For an Aerospace company, real-time inventory information is critical to support the production order planning and the forecasting of purchase items. This is especially true when having long-lead-time components with some of your suppliers.
Boyum’s supply and demand management balances your inventory and ensures the right components and quantities are in the warehouse at the right time.
That means reducing inventory obsolescence related to product changes, which positively impact your financial bottom line.
Achieve Industry Quality Standards
Today, many enterprises are still operating manual paper-based quality and traceability control systems. Running an offline quality and traceability system means that you waste precious time and resources whenever you must perform a customer audit or maintain preferred supplier status.
Quality control allows enterprises to define what, when and how products are tested, providing a full audit and electronic documentation trail of the quality control procedures and processes.
Reduce the amount of man effort required to meet the industry’s time limit to provide full traceability records. With full backward and forward (end to end) traceability, Boyum Solution delivers quality information and data with a simple click.
Serialization and batch traceability
Boyum solutions assign a unique individual product identification based on batch and serial numbers to protect your supply chain against falsification or defective products. It also ensures product and customer safety.
A standardized warehouse management system registers all inbound, internal, and outbound logistics movements of products, thus ensuring full traceability.
