Virtual Build for Aeronautics and Aerospace

Virtual Build for Aeronautics and Aerospace

Virtual Build: achieve a higher product maturity by validating a significant number of assembly sequences well long before physical mock-ups are available. 

Assembly cell ergonomic, blind operation identification and hand clearance review and validation:

  • Improving quality and throughput due to better workplace and process ergonomics
  • Reduction of unnecessary travel paths
  • Efficient delivery of materials and tools to line and worker
  • Reducing injuries and unnecessary discomfort
  • Compliance of ergonomic relevant installation guidelines
  • Improving quality due to more robust assembly procedures 

Tooling access review/ validation/ training:

  • Accelerating time to volume as adequacy of tooling is verified before ramp up
  • Reuse of standard tools and less rework of tooling to reduce the costs for special tools development
  • Less/no downtime due to inadequacy of tooling/handling devices
  • Higher throughput/shorter cycle time due to improved tooling ergonomics
  • Accelerating time to volume/faster ramp up as staffed is fully trained virtually upfront 

Virtual new/ prototype part review:

  • Accelerating time to market and volume at lower costs for physical prototype as necessary familiarization can be conducted virtually
  • Ability to do frontloading of the activities up to the point that you are able to perform this before design freeze to actually impact design for manufacturability/assembly
