Lockheed Martin

Managing supply chain complexity.

About Lockheed Martin

Lockheed Martin is one of the world’s leading aerospace and defense manufacturers. The company’s products are complex, and its demand is highly variable. To keep costs low, Lockheed Martin’s planners need accurate forecasts on the impacts of changes across deep bills of material with multiple tiers of suppliers.

The Challenge and Benefit

Before switching to Kinaxis RapidResponse, Lockheed Martin had limited visibility into its suppliers up and down the supply chain, leaving its planners to make decisions with limited information. With RapidResponse, Lockheed Martin has connected data and empowered planners. Demand simulations are easy to run and more accurate than ever before. The supply chain Center of Excellence establishes task flows and responsibilities, so planners have the information they need when they need it. Lockheed Martin can now resolve issues as they arise with the assurance that it will still meet customer needs.

There are a lot of little nifty things in there that make life a lot easier.
