"Agile Development: Supporting the Aerospace & Defense Industry"

This white paper discusses the growing need for agile development in the Aerospace & Defense (A&D) industry.

It describes key development issues pertinent in the A&D industry and how an agile development approach can address these issues to enable shorter, more efficient, and less costly product development and delivery while improving in-service availability and support.

Readers will also gain an understanding of the agile development paradigm and the business value that can be achieved by applying agile methods in A&D. Finally, this paper describes how Siemens Digital Industries Software (Siemens), with its Xcelerator portfolio, addresses these challenges and provides solutions for enabling agile development in the A&D industry.

Key Takeaways:

  • Product development paradigms in A&D are evolving—reflecting the need for more efficient and faster development cycles
  • The United States Department of Defense is moving to a new acquisition model requiring A&D companies to deliver solutions faster within a construct of validated modules
  • Companies need to adapt agile development methods pioneered in the software industry to accelerate A&D product development
  • Product development teams must use modern, open, and integrated design ecosystems leveraging the comprehensive digital twin and digital thread to boost innovation, as well as reduce costs, technical risks, and design-cycle time throughout the entire product development process
  • Manufacturers must be more flexible to efficiently address their customers’ evolving needs and work more collaboratively with their supply chain partners
  • Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio of solutions provides a proven set of capabilities to enable agile development in the A&D industry
