Engineered Products and Projects


The engineered products and project industry consists of aerospace and defense, project business, machinery and components industries. Companies which belong to these industries are in a competitive landscape which requires them to deal with similar strategic and operational challenges.

Executives of these industries have to answer to several questions like the following:

  • How do we assess our financial vulnerability?
  • How can we optimize our procurement activity using strategic sourcing?
  • How can we increase asset utilization?
  • How can we manage strategic risks due to our global footprint?
  • How do we determine the right involvement of suppliers in research and development, manufacturing and services?
