Moog: Blockchain can help suppliers meet quality and regulatory commitments

    Moog CTO George Small said the introduction of blockchain technology can help the aerospace industry by allowing tracking of manufactured goods and associated data across supply chains “from origin to delivery and on into service”, helping suppliers meet quality and regulatory requirements (Reuters, 06-May-2018). As previously reported by CAPA, Moog, the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences and ST Aerospace signed an 18 month contract earlier in 2018 to perform co-funded work in support of applying Moog’s ‘VeriPart’ solution, adapting blockchain technology for additive manufacturing. The agreement will allow Moog’s solution to be demonstrated via Microsoft Azure Blockchain.
