Improving Cost Efficiency

Fostering a competitive supply chain able to halve the time-to-market, and reduce product development and operational costs, will result in more affordable transport for all citizens. Research will focus on improvements to the whole business process from conceptual design to product development, manufacturing and in-service operations, including the integration of the supply chain.

This theme embraces all the costs arising in the design and operation of the whole air system and mirrors the Highly Cost Efficient High Level Target in ACARE’s Strategic Research Agenda. It will address the tools and technologies required to enhance the whole enterprise process. It will include both the developments needed to deliver zero-maintenance aircraft, as well as ‘lean’ airport, aircraft and air traffic management operations to give a substantial reduction in operating costs.
