Implementing ADS’ SC21 Excellence Framework White Paper

Implementing ADS’ SC21 Excellence Framework


SC21 – Supply Chain in the 21st Century –  is a change programme designed to accelerate the competitiveness of the aerospace & defence industry by raising the performance of its supply chains.

ADS, the Premier Trade Organisation for companies in the UK Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space Sectors manages the SC21 programme and support its delivery to signatories through a group strategic and training partners. ASCA, trading as ASC Associates UK, is an ADS strategic partner

The power of ASCA’s SC21 deployment model lies in its definition of the implementation goal. We have defined SC21 implementation goal as follows:

To strive to make our organisation a better company, every day, through the

establishment and operation of a continuous improvement programme,

based on the SC21 framework.

An organisation with a continuous improvement programme, based on SC21 framework, is an SC21 company and can become an SC21 signatory, if such a programme is registered with the SC21 project office at ADS (Aerospace, Defence and Security trade association).
