Webinar: Digitalization is no longer an option but an imperative for Aerospace & Defense
Aerospace and defense (A&D) companies are well-disciplined and sophisticated enterprises that are well-suited for the digital transformation affecting all industry. At the same time, this makes A&D companies vulnerable to those early adopters that will disrupt the market.

About the Speakers
Join Greg Quinn, CEO of Quinn & Associates and Fraser Bonnett, President of Quinn & Associates as they discuss how trends in the digital transformation of aerospace and defense meet today’s challenges and maintain a competitive advantage.
Mr. Bonnett spent ten years with USAF at Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton OH, attached to Aerospace Systems Command, with duties including design and performance analysis, threat and weapons systems analysis, including: A-10 II, F-15E, F-16WW, YF-22, Joint Strike Fighter (JSF, F-35), XV-22, JSOW, and the ATB (B-2). He has a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace engineering from the Pennsylvania State University. Before founding Quinn & Associates, he sent 10 years consulting with the US Air Force. His advanced scheduling experience includes glass, pharmaceuticals, food, secondary metals, and paper industries. He is also a specialist integrating Preactor with MRP/ERP and MES systems.
Studies have shown that it is not so much as the investment level in digitalization but in what a company invests. Generally, investments in improving operations required less capital while driving the greatest return. The drive for operational improvements is top-down: from the customer to the OEM to its suppliers. Digital transformation will change everything, but it can be overwhelming for some companies to launch a multi-prong campaign to transform all aspects of their business. Is there a starting point for manufacturer than can begin to deliver value to operations in the early stages for the digital transformation? Advanced scheduling is an application worth serious consideration for its role in the digital enterprise and its proven return-on-value.
For nearly two decades Mr. Quinn engineered solutions for airborne, ship-borne, and land-based systems. These systems were related to signal collections as elements of an overall “eyes & ears” data fusion for both strategic and tactical purposes. Mr. Quinn has nearly 40 years experience in delivering solutions for improved resource management and predictive analysis. Mr. Quinn has a B.S. in Mathematics and a dual M.S. in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research from the Pennsylvania State University. Mr. Quinn has published and lectures in the areas of resource management software, information systems, and project management, including several chapters to a recent book Finite Capacity Scheduling: Optimizing a Constrained Supply Chain.
