Aerospace industry case studies identify numerous ways in which organizations have relied on Kepner-Tregoe’s structured problem solving for critical challenges facing the aerospace industry. Kepner-Tregoe (KT) critical thinking strategies are relied upon by aerospace companies for tackling tough issues—from bringing Apollo XIII home safely at NASA, to adapting to major changes in government contractor requirements, to developing high tech products, or other challenges.

Kepner-Tregoe aerospace industry case studies detail some of the reasons that NASA, government contractors, and the airline industry depend upon Kepner-Tregoe problem solving, decision making critical thinking skills when stakes are high. Aerospace organizations constantly face pressure due to rising costs, safety or the rapidly increasing complexity of advanced systems. Our effective problem solving tools are employed by aerospace industry leaders to troubleshoot, find root cause, make decisions, or improve project management in order to build competitive advantage. 

When Apollo XIII announced, “Houston, we have a problem,” NASA turned to the logic of Kepner-Tregoe troubleshooting. The complexity of advanced avionics has intensified the need for structured, reliable troubleshooting that can cut through data efficiently. KT root cause analysis offers aerospace organizations reliability and the speed needed to cut through data quickly as pressure mounts. The systematic processes for problem solving, decision making, as well as project management have been incorporated into aerospace industry operations on all levels.

Kepner-Tregoe case studies provide a glimpse of just a few ways successful organizations in the aerospace industry have incorporated Kepner-Tregoe structured thinking.
