Fuuz® for the Aerospace and Defense Industry
Companies doing business in the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) industry must comply with strict access and control compliance. Two governing bodies, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), have strict requirements concerning the use of cloud services and software. This can make it difficult for suppliers to find a solution that meets their needs.
6 Ways the Flexible Fuuz Platform Helps A & D Businesses Succeed
Fuuz Runs on Amazon Web Services
Suppliers to the A&D industry are turning to the Fuuz Platform as the go-to solution to help them provide rigorously tested products of the highest quality.
Fuuz hosts its platform solutions in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, leveraging the benefits of AWS data centers and networked architecture to protect your information, identities, applications and devices.
And Fuuz customers benefit from AWS being the only commercial cloud with its service offerings and associated supply chain vetted and accepted as secure enough for top-secret workloads.
If your company must take on the additional expense of GovCloud compliance, that won’t affect the performance of Fuuz.
Fuuz Is the First Anything Platform as a Service (xPaaS)
Here’s the Fuuz solution explained in 5 steps.
xPaaS can be aPaaS
Fuuz’s xPaaS (anything you need in a platform, remember) can also be an application platform as a service (aPaaS) for rapid app development.
Fuuz aPaaS comes with out-of-the-box industrial-grade apps like MES, WMS, TMS and more.
Fuuz has a library of reusable code components and tools for IT teams so Fuuz is personalized to meet your needs.
Fuuz has no-code, low-code editors, so business and sales teams can create apps too.
Fuuz Infrastructure Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides structural tools that give IT administrators a jump-start on building the infrastructure exactly the way they want it without starting from scratch on AWS.
How Fuuz Helped an A&D Manufacturer Succeed
This privately owned manufacturer of highly complex assemblies generates approximately $30M in annual revenue.
Key Success Factors
- Provide a quoting solution capable of handling BOMs, including up to 100 subassemblies and 1,200 components.
- Use Actual Cost data from their ERP system to drive the quoting process.
- Configure all pertinent master data in the ERP system automatically.
- Replace the legacy Multi-DNC program, which sends CNC programs to machines on the plant floor, with an automated solution.
The customer determined early on that their new ERP system had a significant gap to overcome regarding their ability to generate quotes and accurate cost models for new projects. As an A&D supplier, they needed to generate quotes with the utmost detail and granularity for clients.
The business evaluated the top quoting software commercially available, but all fell short in one way or another.
After a demonstration and prototype of how they would generate a quote in Fuuz, this A&D manufacturer was sold. Additionally, they had plans to replace other legacy systems like Predator, a DNC program that feeds CNC programs to the equipment. They also wanted a factory information system (FIS) to monitor factory performance.
They found they could accomplish all of this on the Fuuz Platform, ultimately saving time and money, with a shorter learning curve.
The quoting solution was so complicated that it required platform enhancements to Fuuz. The manufacturer now has a fully integrated plant solution for about a half of their original budget.
