The structure of the present U.S. aerospace and defense (A&D) industry was shaped two decades ago, in response to Pentagon budget cuts. Then-Secretary of Defense William Perry emphatically asked solidification in a 1993 meeting of defense contractors that came to be known as the Last Supper. More lately, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have had their own effect on the A&D business, fundamentally altering benefit across the supply chain. Today, profitability is held for firms that can apply information based procedures to make or embrace imaginative arrangements.
Simply speaking, the A&D supply chain is intensely focused on the front end and divided in the lower tiers. Levels of solidification likewise differ fundamentally, depending upon the sector they bolster. Industry forces are conflicting with basic union by prime contractors in high-concentration programs, compelling them rather to disaggregate and reconfigure. The divided lower-level tiers stay helpless, making consolidation exceedingly mind boggling.
As the table is being set for the spin-off of the Last Supper, an intensive comprehension of the industry’s ebb and flow structure—particularly, of each program-level segment and value drivers—will be useful in creating systems to explore the next round of restructuring.
