Insight_01 – Digital Transformation

In this first issue of ATI’s INSIGHT, we focus on Digital Transformation. The paper explores the potential for digital transformation in aerospace, and examines the maturity of the UK aerospace sector’s digital capability. It has been informed by surveys of, and interviews with, industry leaders (both internal and external to the sector) conducted by the ATI. Most aerospace organisations surveyed are embedding digital technologies, but principally to deliver incremental efficiency and productivity improvements. Many are not considering the potential to change business models. In this regard, aerospace is following – but it could be leading.

Raising Ambition for UK Industrial Strategy (November 2016)

This report, produced by the ATI and Fathom Consulting, looks at the role of innovation in addressing the decline of UK productivity. It points to four key areas in which targeted Government intervention can have the most impact: levels of investment in research & development (R&D); boosting competitiveness; support for mid-sized companies; and enhancing infrastructure, clusters and skills.

The report suggests UK aerospace as a model for how strategic Government investment in innovation can bring a new focus to an industrial sector.
