as much data as possible. Beyond stocking, OEMs are looking
for a distributor that brings strong market intel to the partnership - an expert on the current parts market who knows the
competitors and has the data capabilities to forecast demand and
strategically stock inventory around the world. We also serve as
the key connector to all of the crucial technical and procurement decision-makers for our OEM partners," Young elaborated.
Boeing, too, sees a future based off of data driven trends in
the supply chain market.
"Boeing's focus is on increasing operational efficiency for our
customers and growing the relationship between OEMs and customers. As aircraft connectivity allows us to leverage data collected, operators are seeing a decrease in delay and an increase
in on-time flights and mission readiness," Shaw noted. "We are
also noticing a more integrated supply chain, including increased
connectivity between Boeing and the customer, and also more
connectivity between Boeing and our suppliers. As we increase
tools and data that allow a better understanding of emergent
needs, we are also seeing an increase in awareness and proactive
action from the supply chain of the future."
Building towards that future, Shaw added that: "Boeing Global
Services Supply Chain strives to be a one-stop-shop for all of our
customers' aftermarket supply chain needs. We have made marked
advancement toward this goal with the acquisition of Boeing
Distribution Services, previously known as KLX, while accelerating a number of organic investments from USM to Additive
Manufacturing to E-Commerce. As we look to the future and
how best to serve our customers, we recognize the importance
of commonality across the supply chain to create value for our
customers with scale, innovation and affordability."
"Right now, a priority is expanding our services with current
OEM customers and building new partnerships. As an independent
distributor, not affiliated with a certain OEM or airline operator,
we are able to focus on all of our OEMs without any conflicts,
and that is really resonating with component OEMs," said Young,
speaking to AAR's future. "We continue to grow our online PAARTS
Store, which provides customers with real-time information and
immediate access to our inventory of over a million parts - and
breaks revenue records every month. When we sign a commercial
customer, their product line is added to our database."
Giving the entire supply chain sector an overview, White forecasts an increasing interconnectedness between companies.
"In general, I suspect we'll see more enterprise resource planning (ERP) system interconnectedness between companies. When
a buyer places an order, it will automatically create demand in
the supplier's ERP system. The Industry 4.0 concept, meaning a

trend toward automation and data exchange, will become more
widespread," White said. "Textron Aviation is considering supply
chain vertical integration to create more control over cost and
delivery. We are actively looking to develop vertical integration
opportunities."
And in BAC's future is a continued emphasis on customer
satisfaction.
"We are always looking for new ways to make consumables
acquisition easy for our customers so they can consolidate
their purchases in one place," said Palma. "Quick turnaround
is the most important. We are able to get our customers their
orders quickly by offering same day shipping up until 4 p.m.,
sometimes later. Because we are a smaller company, we have
more leeway when servicing our customers. For example, it's
not uncommon for us to take an order right before 5 p.m. and
drive it to FedEx Office on our way home so that a customer
can get it the next day. Larger distributors are more confined to
rigid shipping cut-off times, whereas we can provide a valueadded service they cannot."
