Commercial Aircraft & General Aviation

With unprecedented backlogs, the commercial aircraft industry is well positioned for the next decade. However, aircraft and system manufacturers are still facing complex challenges. Ramping production by 50-100% creates strain in the lower tiers of the supply chain. Combined with a new risk-sharing model, this has resulted in less visibility into supply chain rate readiness and risk. New market entrants in the single aisle category from China, Russia, and Japan will increase competitive pressures and focus on cost and service competitiveness. Commoditization of the platform will further drive manufacturers to differentiate their offerings through more complete solutions, including digital offerings that will require new business and operating models. FTI Consulting professionals, experienced with the main aircraft manufacturers as well as their first and second tier suppliers, have helped companies at every level within the commercial aircraft value chain solve these and related strategic and operational challenges.
