-SC21 Background
A|D|S’ SC21 (21st Century Supply Chain) is a supply chain transformation programme designed to accelerate the competitiveness of the aerospace and defence industry in the UK.

SC21 framework is focused on collaborative working and performance management to achieve benefits across the aerospace, defence and decurity supply chain.

Cultivating Supply Chains for the 21st Century, or SC21, was founded by military and aerospace primes including BAE Systems, Thales and General Dynamics, who recognised that the level of supplier audits required for each of them to operate autonomously resulted in high levels of costly and inefficient duplication.

By working together and founding SC21, the largest and most influential design authorities within the military and aerospace market have been able to pool their knowledge and recognise organisations with exceptional levels of quality and on-time delivery.
