Panel discussions on issues fundamental to the future of aerospace and defense manufacturing are previewed in new podcasts posted in advance of AeroDef Manufacturing Summit and Exposition 2014, which takes place February 25–27, 2014, at the Long Beach (Calif.) Convention Center.

SME and the nation’s largest OEMs are looking for new ways to integrate the industry’s distributed and diverse supply chain to drive innovation and increase productivity. The Executive Insights Series addresses these issues through discussions among high-level manufacturing executives from business and government.
