Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, Fort Worth, Texas, a business unit of Lockheed Martin, an aerospace and defence company, will deploy the Kinaxis Rapidresponse system.

Lockheed Martin is a major supplier of logistics systems and lifetime support and performance-based logistics services to military and civil government customers.

The company provides systems for platform maintenance, modifications and repair, material readiness and distribution, and global supply chain command and control.

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics chose Rapidresponse because the system will complement their highly complex supply chain infrastructure in dynamically aligning demand and supply.

With Rapidresponse, a broad base of users are able to access accurate and detailed supply chain information in an easy-to-use spreadsheet interface, embedded with powerful MRP analytics and automatically populated with live data feeds from ERP and planning systems across the extended enterprise.

With the initial deployment of Rapidresponse scheduled for early 2009, supply chain participants across various functional groups will be able to model ERP/MRP data to instantly simulate, share and score countless ‘what-if’ supply and demand scenarios.

Bob Rearden, aeronautics vice-president of Supply Chain Integration at Lockheed Martin, said: ‘In the near-term, Rapidresponse will aid us in prioritising replenishments as we provision material consumption on the factory floor.

‘Long term, we envision using this tool to enhance our reporting and decision-making capabilities.’
