Infosys announced a five-year agreement with Spirit AeroSystems, a manufacturer of aerostructures for commercial airplanes, business/regional jets, and defense platforms. Infosys will cooperate with Spirit AeroSystems to provide aerostructure and systems engineering services for product development of commercial, business jet, and emerging aircraft programs and Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) services.
This strategic collaboration builds on 16 years of longstanding association between Infosys and Sprit AeroSystem, during which Infosys has delivered innovative design solutions for some of Spirit’s aerostructure programs.
As part of this agreement, Infosys will give end-to-end product development services, including design engineering, sustaining engineering, systems engineering, stress engineering, manufacturing engineering, and repair and maintenance.
Infosys also aims to accelerate product development across the value stream by leveraging knowledge-based engineering and engineering automation. In addition, Infosys will support Spirit to secure highly efficient structural designs and a robust certification process, contributing to manufacturing innovative, lightweight, and more sustainable aircraft structures and components.
“At Spirit AeroSystems, we believe our ability to advance our offering at design and engineering levels continuously is one of our competitive differentiators. Our longstanding collaboration with Infosys means we are well-positioned to co-innovate on critical stages of product development, ensuring we continue to pursue the highest standards in quality and airworthiness. This strategic agreement further reinforces our strengths and will leverage mutual synergies to accelerate the development of world-class, sustainable aerostructures and services across our commercial and aftermarket business segments,” said Dr. Sean Black, Senior VP, and Chief Engineer, Engineering and Technology, Spirit AeroSystems.
Commenting on the collaboration, Jasmeet Singh, Executive Vice President and Global Head of Manufacturing, Infosys, said, “Now more than ever, aerospace and defense organizations need to rapidly reinvent their digital foundation. We are thrilled to deepen our strategic collaboration with Spirit AeroSystems and accelerate their digital transformation, by pushing the envelope in design and product engineering. With our investments in aerostructure engineering and next-gen technologies like artificial intelligence and cloud, we are confident of delivering compelling value to Spirit and take our collaboration to newer heights.”
