Backlogs in aerospace production
Over the next decades, airline fleet modernization and aircraft retirements will add to current backlog of aviation orders. In the past, companies adjusted production rates by adding or removing labor, creating cost and quality issues. Automation can help, but companies need flexibility to achieve the right rate.
Companies must dynamically match production with demand while improving quality, lowering costs, ensuring worker saftefy and delivering on time. Instead of treating design, planning, validation and execution as silos, companies must integrate horizontally and vertically to compete in today’s market.
Increase manufacturing agility:
Digital continuity throughout production
Agile companies can eliminate costs, quality issues, and waste virtually before production starts. They can anticipate potential issues before they occur, simulate multiple scenarios rapidly to determine the best course of action, and have the flexibility in their production systems and methods to meet new actual market demand.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the digital continuity needed to meet production rate and quality goals. It connects planning to the shop floor through a “digital twin” to anticipate issues, and take proactive actions to accelerate production rates.
