How to Avoid Costly Program Delays that Compromise Your Airframe Development Goals (co-presented with Northrop Grumman)

As an airframe developer or component supplier, you're constantly challenged with meeting goals that seem to contradict each other. You can make a great product, but exceed the budget. You can come in on budget, but fail to deliver on time. Or you can satisfy the schedule, but create a product that doesn't meet all the specifications.

How do you avoid compromising your goals?

To deliver better airframes to market faster and on budget, you need to spend less time defining and looking for critical airframe assembly data, and more time using it.

This webcast features an in-depth discussion of strategies for capturing key design information and sharing it with your organization and entire supply chain-making it possible to accomplish all of your goals.

You will discover:

  • Why CAD alone is not enough for efficient airframe development.
  • The value of capturing, communicating, consuming and reusing complete digital definitions of airframes.
  • The importance of efficiently managing assembly planning fasteners, joints, parts lists, and inspection planning.
  • Why enabling engineers to work how they think drastically improves productivity, efficiency and accuracy.
  • How to better balance your goals for delivering products that meet specifications, within budget and on time.

Who should attend:

  • Manufacturing Engineers
  • Design Engineers
  • Aircraft OEMs and Suppliers
  • Engineering Managers
  • Quality Engineers
