CAV Aerospace operates from eleven sites around the world, providing products and services into the aviation sector including the manufacture of major aircraft components and ice protection systems.
Prior to the project only the head office sites were on the core ERP system, the remaining eight sites were operating on a range of legacy systems, spreadsheets and locally developed databases.
A global roll-out project was launched to implement the latest version of the ERP system into every site and to remove the reliance on localised systems. The project was supported by Gradient Consulting and the system vendor.
CAV took the opportunity of using a planned upgrade of their ERP system to drive through process improvements across the business sites and divisions. What was key was the need to align systems with processes underlined by the correct behaviours to deliver business improvement. This project was supported by the ERP vendor and Gradient Consulting.
