BAE Systems

Excuse me - we need more (Wing-Fold) Ribs here!!

The cross functional joint BAE Systems and Avcorp team successfully mitigated an F-35 single-source capacity risk by dual sourcing an extremely complex Titanium machined component within challenging timescales, to support a significant F-35 Carrier Variant programme rate increase.

In the process of mitigating the risk we approved a US based second source 2nd tier machining supplier during COVID restrictions, continued to utilise and maximise the existing supply chain to meet the ongoing production programme delivery schedule and delivered c$2M USD savings to the programme baseline.
