Parker Aerospace PP&C and Engineering Support

Bombardier, Inc., awarded Parker Aerospace a ten-year, $3.5 billion contract to supply flight control systems for Bombardier CSeries aircraft. Concurrently, Parker won addition programs totaling over $16.5 billion. With this volume of work and the challenge of designing and producing a complex state-of-the-art, software controlled flight control system, Parker found its capacity and systems strained.

SMA and Parker teamed over the past six years to mature the capabilities of the Parker PMO. Today, Parker has an organic world-class capability. In 2016, Parker received the nomination from the Project Management Institute (PMI) for PMO of the Year.
