|At times, ULA has as many as 15 different operating systems dedicated to overlapping processes, such as rocket design, testing, and launch. Multiple systems created unnecessary costs and unwanted confusion among workers at offices, factories, and launch sites in different location.
In order to improve collaboration and transparency during vital activities that directly influence mission success, ULA wanted to improve data sharing and streamline manufacturing processes.
|The United Launch Alliance (ULA) was formed specifically to provide reliable, cost-efficient access to space for launch customers including the United States Department of Defense, NASA, the National Reconnaissance Office, and the United States Air Force. The alliance relies heavily on information technology to help improve the probability of mission success while driving excess costs out of the processes of designing, testing, and launching rockets.
|To achieve the aforementioned goals, ULA decided to employ the SAP complex assembly manufacturing solution. Using this solution, ULA was able to improve the data flow between the different systems ranging from manufacturing to finance. |
