Operational excellence

Safran aims to be the benchmark supplier for its customers by offering products and services that meet the highest levels of excellence worldwide.

A management system to optimize all processes

The One Safran approach aims to consolidate the management system, processes and performance indicators for the Group’s companies. One Safran makes it possible to deploy our operational excellence standards, thereby contributing to the quality and reliability of the Group’s products.

To promote our continuous improvement policy, we have implemented a number of cross-functional initiatives, such as:

  • participative innovation, which offers each employee, within their own field, the possibility to share their ideas and play an active role in improving the Group’s performance; 
  • Lean Sigma, which allows to structure and standardize the management of progress projects;
  • QRQC1, initially developed in the industrial and technical areas of all the Group’s companies.


1 QRQC (Quick Response Quality Control) is a managerial method based on daily management of performance and the rapid, robust handling of problems at the appropriate management levels.

Accelerating performance through digital transformation

Safran’s commitment to continuous improvement and ongoing innovation is firmly rooted in our history, and we have continued to adapt to the changing digital landscape. Launched in 2021, the digital transformation program is managed by the Digital Department, which is positioned at Group Executive Committee level. The program has four key objectives:

  • boosting the performance of our core businesses (Engineering, Manufacturing, Supply chain, Sales, Support and Services);
  • improving customer service by building personalized relationships and offering high value-added digital services;
  • developing collaborative work and our agility;
  • accelerating the development of digital skills across the entire workforce.
