Securing the Future: Navigating Aerospace and Defense Supply Chain Turbulence with Strategic Sourcing and OEM Leadership

Located in the Aerospace Industries Association Stand, this panel session will explore the challenges of aerospace and defense (A&D) supply chain. Specifically, it will address those issues created by Boeing and the ripple effects of the Ukraine conflict. The concepts of strategic sourcing and potential restructuring support by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are critical.

Representatives from Oliver Wyman will join the panel discussion on how OEMs are re-evaluating their sourcing strategies to reduce dependency on single points of failure to ensure a more resilient supply chain.
