The Challenge
At times, ULA has as many as 15 different operating systems dedicated to overlapping processes, such as rocket design, testing, and launch. Multiple systems created unnecessary costs and unwanted confusion among workers at offices, factories, and launch sites in different location. In order to improve collaboration and transparency during vital activities that directly influence mission success, ULA wanted to improve data sharing and streamline manufacturing processes.
About The Customer
The United Launch Alliance (ULA) was formed specifically to provide reliable, cost-efficient access to space for launch customers including the United States Department of Defense, NASA, the National Reconnaissance Office, and the United States Air Force.

The Solution
To achieve the aforementioned goals, ULA decided to employ the SAP complex assembly manufacturing solution. Using this solution, ULA was able to improve the data flow between the different systems ranging from manufacturing to finance.
Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
    The well-integrated nature of the system has allowed ULA to simplify otherwise complex tasks and improve the speed at which they carry out their operations.
  • [Data Management - Data Analysis]
    There is less siloed information and enhanced synergy across workgroups and geographies since all of ULA's SAP systems communicate effectively with each other.
