Optimize manufacturing team performance and validate the impact of early design changes.
Aerospace and Defense Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers juggle the need to manage manufacturing sites and complex global supply chains to meet aggressive delivery targets. Analysts report over 30% of errors and waste occur during production.
Ready for Rate accelerates manufacturing ramp-up and improves quality by providing engineering and manufacturing planning stakeholders with cross-site digital continuity and real-time access to accurate product and product build information.
Ready for Rate enables flexible production while delivering products with first-time quality, on budget, and on schedule. Aerospace manufacturers can take advantage of digital continuity to implement lean practices that remove waste in critical areas of manufacturing. Planners can define and validate manufacturing processes down to individual work instructions virtually to eliminate potential issues and waste before they occur.
Benefits of Ready for Rate
Accelerate production implementation
Prove new manufacturing technologies and automation within the 3DEXPERIENCE® twin of the real production to increase the speed of production implementation with first time quality.
Optimize supply chain and production strategies
Integrate the global but lean manufacturing strategy planning, validation and optimization with a strong supply chain to meet production rate, cost,and schedule.
Reduce lead and ramp up times
Manage global manufacturing requirements consistent with validated processes and formalize planning know-how for easy reuse, continuous optimization and reduction of lead time.
Deliver right the first time
Collaboratively manage engineering change, planning quality and risk on a single platform to ensure continuous quality to the shop floor.
Included in Ready for Rate
"Ready for Rate enables excellence from manufacturing planning to execution on the shop floor with digital continuity from 3D functional & physical DMU. Each component can be virtually produced, installed and inspected to ensure first-time quality on budget and on schedule to meet production rate. "
