Digitize & Protect Aerospace and Defense Supply Chains and Digital Twins using SyncFab

Time delays, increased costs and risks to security are just a few of the outcomes that plague supply chain systems when faulty, counterfeit, or incorrect products are ordered or received. SyncFab’s blockchain can be used in tandem with digital twins a supporting technology within a powerful tool known as a digital thread. A large and diverse collection of interwoven data flows, a digital thread can provide more-efficient methods of sharing data throughout the product design, manufacturing and maintenance lifecycles, translating to faster and less expensive production, superior maintenance, and on-time upgrades.

Smarter Parts Procurement

Procurement is a huge opportunity to slash your project costs and timeframes. That’s why nearly three-quarters of Chief Procurement Officers (74%) cite cost reduction as a strong business priority, according to Deloitte. However, traditional manufacturing supply chains are bottlenecked by manual processes for trust authentication and regulatory compliance. The DoD supply chain ecosystem depends on certifications and collaboration between procurement teams to ensure the validity of the goods being acquired. Increasing transparency and data sharing between these entities enables better anti-counterfeit protection.

Smarter Parts Compliance for DFARS and QMS

The DoD requires detailed information about the materials and components that their manufacturers are sourcing from a variety of suppliers. SyncFab’s blockchain technology can bridge the gap of trust in distributed multi-tier supply chains to ensure the entire process maintains the appropriate standards.

Smarter MRO For Aerospace & Defense

What the aerospace industry doesn’t know about its planes is costing it serious money. Mission Critical Airworthiness information is still collected manually which is expensive, time-consuming and unnecessary! The data showing a plane’s history and condition are spread across up to 40 systems, in the hands of multiple parties who may be competitors reluctant to share data. Mercenary resellers take advantage of Airlines, Govt Agencies and MROs because there is no central clearinghouse of aircraft components. Maintenance is reactive, and it is hard to know which planes are affected when regulators or manufacturers require supersession of a part.

Parts Classification Mission Assurance

Boost Mission Assurance and Get Data for the life of the aircraft to mitigate for unassigned suppliers’ warranty, manufacturing (physical) identity, tamper detection (fraud), and track and trace.

Defense Supply Chain Cybersecurity

Our defense industrial base is dependent on distributed supply chains made up of hundreds of thousands of individual parts from both domestic and international suppliers with many sub-tier supplier ERP systems vulnerable to security attacks. Without advanced risk management systems to actively monitor this vulnerable supply chain, there is a great deal of potential for disruption. SyncFab’s Distributed Ledger Manufacturing Blockchain Technology offers a Solution to Secure and Authenticate those Distributed Suppliers in an independently secured information network.

Aerospace Manufacturing Supply Chain Scale

A single Boeing 373 assembled in Renton, Washington is made with over 367,000 parts and hundreds of domestic and foreign suppliers. According to CNN, Airbus, Boeing’s competitor, uses over 4 Million Parts sourced from 30 countries for their Airbus A380. And both companies are able to put these jets together miraculously fast: each can produce a little over one plane a day—right around 400 per year.
