space and advanced manufacturing

Operational performance. Investment. Risk management and compliance.

Manufacturing remains critically important to both the developing and the advanced world. In many countries the sector is in a state of transition: growing in emerging economies; shrinking but becoming more productive in advanced economies.

Some markets compete on cost, others on technology and innovation.
