About Lockheed Martin
Lockheed Martin is one of the world’s leading aerospace and defense manufacturers. Lockheed’s products are complex and its demand is highly variable. To keep costs low, its 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 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. Its demand simulations are easy to run and more accurate than ever before. A 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.
