  2. 2. Picking up the Gauntlet: the Infosys solution Infosys’ Aerospace and Defense PracticeWith the 787, Boeing was dreaming big dreams. They wanted to create a next generation plane – Infosys has built its aerospace and defense practice on a sterling reputation for quality, productivity and predictability.a plane that was everything a 21st century airline could possibly want. And they wanted to slash the These are the reasons why Infosys is the highest ranked IT services company in Business Week’s annual “Top 100” ratings.cost of production, as well as the cost of operation. It was a daunting challenge. But Infosys was up With revenues exceeding US $2 billion, Infosys has become recognized as a global leader in next-generation IT, engineeringto the task, co-developing innovative solutions in Information Technology (IT). and consulting services. The Infosys approach is distinctive…and effective. Our Modular Global Sourcing Model enables us to better develop breakthrough solutions – breakthrough in design, in cost-efficiencies, in cycle times. Our global network, our AS/EN9100Reinventing airplane operations through IT AND ISO/CMM Level 5 certifications along with the depth and breadth of our experience, results in a portfolio of servicesImagine an airplane as an extension of an airline’s network on the ground. Boeing did. They could see huge efficiencies that can have a profound impact across the entire value chain.coming from the seamless integration of intelligent onboard systems with ground IT systems. Working with Infosys, Boeinghas continued its pioneering role in Aerospace System development enabled by IT. For the 787, Infosys supported Boeingon several major IT initiatives: Expertise in Aerospace Domain• Electronic Flight Bag Document Browser – when they need information on the flight deck, pilots Infosys’ expertise in the aerospace domain spans every phase of the product development process: concept, preliminary of the 787 won’t have to flip through the pages design, detail design, stress check calculations, Design for Manufacture (DFM) and manufacturing support. of a manual to hunt it down. Instead, with the application that Boeing and Infosys developed and integrated, information is retrievable in seconds.
