of qualifying criteria to enable Cobham to remain a strategic
partner. What followed was five years of thorough work embedding
Airbus' processes through direct and continuous improvement;
improving research and development methods through GRESS process
implementation, production and product audit processes and
certifications, SQIP supplier quality system, ensuring a robust
on-time-to-deliver process, investing and training Cobham employees
and securing solid local supplier's networks to ensure long term
Since implementation, Cobham Aerospace Communications has been
awarded the 'Best Improved' and 'Best Performer' by Airbus for
three consecutive years since 2011, and again in 2015.
With stringent conditions in place, productivity on site has
increased by 60% which, when combined with Cobham's Excellence in
Delivery initiative, has resulted in a leaner and more industrial
set up, providing solid foundations with which to provide global
connectivity solutions to aircraft makers.
Cobham is proud to have been awarded the 'Best Performance
Award' from Airbus in 2015.
