Commercial Aerospace & Defense

Gain real-time visibility and control to drive innovation and distinction

In the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry, costs associated with product innovation and delivery are continually increasing, putting significant pressure on A&D companies to stay competitive while keeping costs at bay. But as new technologies move up the hype cycle such as Industry 4.0, Big Data and IoT, in some cases a major upheaval can occur if you don’t carefully plan on how your computers and automation will come together.

Support the Value Chain

The road to smart manufacturing and smart factories is not an easy one. With Software AG’s heritage in tackling massive scale integration challenges and our integrated and secure digital platform, we can help your company profitably manage the value chain, boost performance of operations, and mitigate risk and ensure compliance.

Supply Chain Integration & IoT

Our solutions preserve your investment in core IT infrastructure while allowing you to continuously integrate new technologies across your enterprise and trading partners. By streamlining connectivity with Software AG’s webMethods Integration Platform, supply chain leaders can connect the dots between applications, systems, the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) to reduce complexity, risks and costs.

While the integration problem that all enterprises face has only been getting bigger over the years, Gartner has positioned webMethods in its Application Integration Magic Quadrant 13 times since 2000 and named Software AG an integration leader five consecutive times.

How do we keep proving how well our software works? Our customers test us daily to tackle their most complex integration challenges.  Often, in addition to hundreds of applications that need to be integrated, quick integration to cloud apps, mobile devices and sensors are in order to keep the supply chain humming. The only way to keep interfaces simple between all these technologies is to adopt a single hybrid integration platform that can connect and integrate all these technologies. That’s webMethods, a proven platform for integrating any apps, including cloud-based apps, providing secure connectivity to machines, mobile devices, people and enabling maximum interoperability through a complete IoT strategy.

Operational Intelligence

Software AG’s Manufacturing Operational Intelligence solution enables companies to derive insight, in real time, from the vast amounts of data generated by disparate operational processes. By monitoring everything, including your PDM, contracts, task orders, supply chain, logistics and services systems in real time, you can be alerted to not only potential issues but also potential opportunities. The solution can automate alerts and actions, escalate and reroute tasks to lower risk and seize opportunities.

Through a combination of real-time connectivity tools and real-time process and data analytics, you gain real-time insights that make the difference. If the logistics systems have a problem, you can tell immediately whose orders will be affected. If you can see subassemblies needed for key customers are going to be delayed, you could reroute those components to another warehouse or proactively contact customers so the delay will not take them by surprise. If there are spikes in orders, the solution could contact your Project Manager with a prewritten notice for your Supplier and Buyers to ensure the awareness and heightened priority for selected customer orders.

Predictive Maintenance

Software AG brings together the Internet of Things (IoT), streaming analytics and process analytics into an integrated predictive maintenance solution. By tapping into the power of the IoT, manufacturers access usage and status data directly from sensors and actuators embedded in equipment.

Streaming analytics continuously analyze this data for real-time alerting as well as enrich it with historical intelligence to predict equipment failures and drive maintenance services when they’re needed and for manufacturers to know in advance where production problems due to machine and other types of failure are going to pop up.

The right set of predictive maintenance capabilities can assure you deploy only maintenance teams and equipment parts when maintenance is really needed, thereby ensuring uptime and product quality at reduced cost.

SAP Optimization

SAP leads the pack among ERP solution vendors. But, putting an SAP solution into production is no small task, and once it is configured, tested and validated, it can—and probably should—remain unaltered. As the “system of record” for essentially every enterprise in which it is installed, it needs to run precisely as it was designed to run.

For A&D companies, that have business models that need to quickly change in response to new market conditions, new customer demands and even new technologies (think social media and the cloud), this may pose an agility challenge. But, instead of responding to this evolving world by trying to implement change at the level

where the SAP ERP system resides, Software AG proposes a better approach. Treat the SAP ERP solution as the bedrock foundation it is, and build your digital business platform on top of that foundation.
