Benefits of an aerospace digital thread

The benefits of intelligent manufacturing are realized through a concept called “shift left,” which brings manufacturing considerations into the early stages of product development, reducing ramp-up time and minimizing late design changes during production. Through a seamless data exchange inside a common product and process development platform, based on a robust digital thread, companies create a closed-loop where manufacturing is connected to design, engineering, operations, and maintenance.

The digital twin role in aerospace manufacturing

Leveraging the production digital twin, production lines can be simulated and validated digitally through virtual commissioning, which saves time and reduces risk. This can be accomplished without interfering with ongoing production, maximizing project capacity, and potential revenue.

Aerospace manufacturing's digital future

As the pool of talented manufacturing engineers and technicians in the aerospace and defense industry shrinks, it is vital companies maintain production expertise and bring automation to the shop floor. Electronic work instructions facilitated by augmented reality (AR) can be tailored to each employee's skill level, bridging the gaps between experience and talent levels on the shop floor, while also capturing knowledge and tips for future projects and employees. By introducing virtual reality (VR) into manufacturing, entire production facilities and processes can be visualized, modified, and optimized before any investments are made in tooling, machinery, or manpower.
