A few words about the Aerospace Industry

The highly regulated Aerospace industry is driven by the highest levels of quality and reliability based on concerns for the safety of crew and passengers. Sustainable zero-defect quality is essential and costly. As passengers return to frequent travel schedules, and airlines upgrade their fleets, commercial aviation will grow substantially in the decade to come. Few industries have a greater visibility in demands for environmental and technical innovation within a landscape of safety and control.

Aerospace organizations rely on Kepner-Tregoe’s structured problem solving for addressing the critical challenges facing the industry. With a rich history dating back over 50 years, when KT helped bring Apollo XIII astronauts home safely, to modern-day high-tech aerospace programs, we help our clients in adapting to the most complex challenges. These range from major changes in government contractor requirements to the development of innovative high-tech products. Leading aerospace industry companies rely on KT to address complex issues and help maintain quality standards.

Space operations, government contractors, and other aircraft, engines and parts manufacturers have made the Kepner-Tregoe critical thinking skills a reliable toolset for resolving the most complex issues. The complexity of advanced avionics, new propulsion systems, and impending space travel has intensified the need for learning and using KT’s structured, reliable analytical troubleshooting methodologies with its ability to simplify data efficiently and effectively so that complex issues can be solved quickly.

What's Missing From Your Asset Performance Management Strategy?

In the last few years, asset-heavy organizations are shifting from reactive maintenance to predictive maintenance (prevent and eliminate unplanned failures) as part of an Asset Performance Management (APM) strategy. The journey to mature APM success must include the people side of your organization—with a framework that encourages collaboration between departments, use of critical thinking and problem- solving skills, and aligned efforts across the organization—resulting in smarter decisions, lower maintenance costs and higher asset reliability.
