Panel Discussion: Parts Availability & Supply Chain Issues
Tuesday, 02/04/2020: 12:10 PM - 1:00 PM
We are observing massive supply and demand issues in a complex and tight supply chain – how can suppliers and operators navigate this more successfully?
Why is there a misalignment between the cost of engine material repairs and how it relates to the market value of that engine material?
Mature engines are operating longer the expected - how does this impact acquisition of parts? Access to serviceable materials – how should the aftermarket organise this with the expected bow wave in materials?
What challenges will this create in the supply chain and how can the volume be effectively managed and processed?
How will these supply chain issues affect mature engines? DER/PMA and additive/3D printing solutions: what alternative parts options can be utilised?
Castings and forgings are a big issue in the supply chain - how can this be managed?
