Aerospace and defense manufacturing

Whether pioneering new propulsion systems, entering the urban air mobility market, or developing next generation solutions for space exploration, aerospace companies must embrace a smart manufacturing approach to take products to market within budget and faster than the competition. 

What is needed to continuously optimize products and processes is a flexible, connected, aerospace factory of the future today. Adopting smart manufacturing solutions from Siemens enables companies to accelerate digital transformation of the entire production process. 

With our Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software solutions, you can connect engineering disciplines and processes, plan, optimize and test your factory floor virtually and accelerate production ramp-up to meet production throughput targets faster.

Automation in Aerospace 

Manufacturing agility in the digital era requires closed-loop collaboration across manufacturing engineering, manufacturing operations and beyond to enhance performance of plant resources in concert with enterprise and automation systems. Automation in aerospace is helping aerospace manufacturers improve efficiency, safety and throughput. Robotics and artificial intelligence are speeding up operations, while sensors and smart devices are monitoring performance and predicting operational issues in real-time.

Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace 

Aerospace and defense is the largest sector for additive manufacturing – and for good reason. Additive manufacturing in aerospace helps reduce weight, enables small series production, lowers fuel costs and consolidates parts. Plus, it can satisfy the industry’s higher standards for strength, temperature, lifecycle and dynamics. Siemens provides solutions for additive manufacturing by using a smart, model-driven process around the digital twin.

Composites in Aerospace 

Thousands of data points are generated when developing aerospace composites. All that data must be effectively managed across teams and through many rounds of revisions. By utilizing a high-fidelity digital twin of the composite part and process to create a digital thread across design and production, you can optimize designs while taking manufacturability constraints into account.
