While leading some of the most significant projects during the re-emergence of Pratt & Whitney, Dr. Vivek Saxena had the opportunity to partner with several external consultants. He realized, as many frustrated industry executives have expressed, that while top shelf consultants bring fresh insights and benchmarks, it is inefficient to collaborate with a group of generalists who lack industry experience at their working level. He also observed the industry's inability to harness and adapt modern technology in aerospace manufacturing and supply chain management. Perceiving multiple unmet client needs, Vivek founded Advisory Aerospace OSC in 2017. AdvisoryAero transformed itself into a software and analytics service provider in 2021.
Our Minneapolis based team is comprised of computer scientists, data scientists, mathematicians, and engineers that work to design innovative factory optimization software to meet the technological needs of our clients. We are pros in data investigation, data cleansing, and developing user intuitive software from the ground up. Our team is fully equipped to tailor our existing software to best fit the specialized needs of our clients.
