Spirit AeroSystems recognizes Infosys as a Platinum Supplier
Assembling an airplane is a multitasker's dream. You get to scrutinize every bolt, rivet and fastener to make sure it's in exactly the right place. At the same time, you get to step back and look at the big picture, making sure enormous fuselages come together on time and within budget.
So it's worth noting when a corporation that knows what it takes to be an industry-leading supplier honors a supplier of its own. Spirit AeroSystems, one of the world's largest independent suppliers of commercial airplane assemblies and components, has recognized Infosys as one of its Platinum Suppliers for 2011.
Infosys helps Spirit AeroSystems reduce product development cycle time and time to market through productivity improvements from smarter automated engineering initiatives. We help the company rapidly innovate and accelerate its world-class engineering services.
Spirit AeroSystems partners with us for a wide range of engineering services — including design verification and validation, computer-aided engineering, knowledge-based engineering, and overall engineering support.
Says José Rivera, Senior Manager, Global Engineering Services, Spirit AeroSystems, "Our long-term partnership with Infosys has provided Spirit the ability to deliver multiple aircraft designs for different original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, at the same time."
Sanjay Jalona, Senior Vice President, High-Tech and Manufacturing, Infosys says, "One of the foremost challenges faced by aerospace companies is effectively managing delivery on multiple programs, on time and within budget." "Infosys is delighted to have partnered with Spirit AeroSystems to contribute toward this goal," he adds.
