Many of the leading manufacturing companies have already boosted their own significance in the industrial automation of their business processes. Aerospace is one of the leading manufacturing sectors and one that is currently moving into the next tier of industrial automation.

This next tier is known as Industry 4.0. It is an important move in the industrial revolution as it marks the 4th major step, which is based on the automation of production with cyber-physical systems. Many more companies are yet to take this step that every one of their competitors will inevitably take. This is the time to take the initiative and take the next step! It is estimated that in the next 5 years, three quarters of Aerospace companies are expected to take that next step into Industry 4.0. The percentage of Aerospace companies expecting to have progressed to this advanced level of digitisation in their production by 2020 is a massive 90%.

In the Aerospace industry, there are many different bits and pieces that go around the paper merry-go-round. The documentation could include aircraft paperwork, maintenance and technical records, orders for parts and supplier invoices, quality checks and company audits, parts catalogues, HR and payroll files, project files, legal documents and flight manifests. As you can see, the list is lengthy; and it goes on! All this paperwork and no easy way to control it. At Anota, we have formulated a way to manage and control every piece of paperwork from end-to-end with no exceptions.

For aerospace companies, the main challenge in implementing any kind of digital operations is not to do with the infrastructure and intellectual property standards or whether there are worries about data security and concerns with privacy, rather it is to do with the culture, their true understanding of how it could benefit them and the organisation of the company itself. Industry 4.0 has significant implications for the way in which a company chooses to organise itself and its delivery model. Businesses will need to make sure that their staff are informed to the changes and they know how that they themselves can be a part of this introduction in order to smooth out the process of user adoption.

The understanding that companies have at the beginning of their transcendence, of how our system can truly add value to their business processes is one that can be difficult to comprehend given the complex nature of the ins and outs of it. On a top line level however, it is easy to understand, easy to use and has many benefits, ones which saves the company time and money on a large scale. How difficult it must be to find the crucial bits of paperwork that you need for a certain project, that may have been lost in the mesh of many other vast chunks of paperwork. It is a pain that we have all experienced at one time or another.

There have been big investments in Industry 4.0. The companies that do are not only reducing costs, but are making massive revenue gains! This is something that has a massive impact on Aerospace. DocuWare will change the way your company runs, from back to front. As your business grows and looks to fulfil its potential, you need to keep the structure secure and organised. The larger your business is, the more difficult it is to keep it that way. Our business process solutions will indubitably make that happen. Our system will be part of the foundation that keeps together the structural integrity of your business. We are not demanding that you commit yourself to Industry 4.0, rather if this is something that may have interested you, to make an appointment with our experts, who can make something scarcely believable, a reality.

It simply won’t be possible for Aerospace businesses to achieve this advancement in the digital age without a change in investment and the way it is allocated across the business, just because of the rapid progress made in anticipation by the companies that are already leading. Many companies will try to jump in too late and they will find that their internal cultures have lagged behind and no amount of advanced technology acquired later on will bring them up to speed. This is why it is crucial to make the move now, and not wait until it’s too late.
