Ensuring supply capability in the defence sector currently requires challenging measures. Especially in times of geopolitical uncertainties, diplomatic tensions and increased demand for defence equipment, it is crucial that supply chains function efficiently and reliably. One significant aspect that influences a manufacturers supply capability is dependence on their own sub-suppliers. Global supply chains can be affected by geopolitical tensions, trade restrictions or natural disasters. This requires a strategic diversification of the supplier base in order to strengthen resilience to external influences. The rapid development of new technologies requires continuous adaptation of equipment and systems. The associated shorter development cycles make it necessary to proactively manage supply chains with consistently high quality standards. Defence companies are faced with the need to reassess the risk of once established global supply chains compared to regional or even purely national approaches.
