With increased consolidation of the suppliers in the commercial aviation market the risk might be that service will deteriorate as the dominance of these consolidating suppliers increases and their organizations are becoming very complex. The participants of the 13th VZM Diversium on June 14 had lively discussions about this topic. Also the drivers behind and effects of OEMs in the aftermarket were addressed. René Kalmann, former VP Procurement AFI-KLM E&M, made the introduction for a group of senior leaders from different stakeholders in the industry.
