Automated Test Equipment, or ATE, is a rapidly expanding industry. As manufacturing capabilities have scaled up thanks to automated production lines and improved data management practices, a new bottleneck has emerged: testing. Quality control has become the new chokepoint in production, especially in aerospace companies. By expanding your ATE capabilities, you can maintain quality without sacrificing output.
Augmented reality, or AR for short, is quickly becoming a vital tool in industrial organizations. This futuristic technology has become much more accessible in recent years, to the point where even small and medium-sized businesses are looking to implement it in their operations. Is augmented reality really necessary for industrial companies, or is it a short-term fad that will fade out? We’re going to examine how industrial businesses are using augmentation today.
In this article, we analyze how to rapidly migrate from a model done with MathWorks tools for modeling and simulation to a radar prototyping testbed built upon COTS components from NI.
Most modern tech companies were built upon a digital foundation. However, manufacturing has long fallen behind in this regard. Due to its emergence before the rise of big data and advanced computing power, few aerospace and defense industry companies have succeeded in going fully digital. Nevertheless, those that have done so find themselves reaping great rewards today. Fortunately, it’s not too late for your company to catch up. Every business can achieve a digital transformation with the right tools.
Like other branches of industry, aerospace companies are quickly adopting industry 4.0 technology. Innovations in computers and data analytics in the past decade and a half have brought forth a brand new model of industry. Some are even calling it the fourth industrial revolution! These digital transformation trends cannot be ignored if you want to remain competitive. But what does a digital transformation in aerospace involve, and why is it necessary to start now?
The big data trends that have taken over the service sector are trickling down into manufacturing. However, decades of traditional industrial practice have made it difficult to achieve a smooth digital transformation in aerospace and other industries. Veteran engineers may not fully appreciate just how valuable going digital can be. Digital transformation companies, though, have found ways to unite modern data trends with useful engineering tools. Model-based enterprise, or MBE, is the perfect approach for a digital transformation in aerospace.
Aerospace companies of all sizes need to modernize to meet the challenges of tomorrow. While large airlines have completed digital transformations, many smaller ones have not. In addition, parts suppliers and subcontractors are often far behind in their efforts to go digital. The more advanced your company’s technology is, the more you’ll be able to work with bigger players, and even become one yourself. What will your company be able to do when it goes digital?
Before you can bring a new industrial solution to market, it has to be vetted thoroughly. Similarly, to prove that your company can handle massive installations for the public sector, you’ll need to demonstrate your capacity. Expanding your own operations calls for pilot designs and exploratory testing to ensure that your goals are feasible. Regardless of the exact situation, testing your systems and their components is essential. R&D and QC processes can be greatly accelerated with automated test equipment.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is much more than a buzzword. Machine learning algorithms coupled with massive databases are making it possible for companies to surge forward in a fraction of the time it would take engineers with just a pen and paper. In particular, the aerospace industry is beginning to tap into the potential of AI. We expect some major leaps forward in the next decade thanks to AI. Here are some of the breakthroughs you can expect to see.
