DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Connecting the digital data threads between machines, devices, and software that are used in integrated manufacturing was demonstrated at AeroDef 2011 Manufacturing Exposition and Conference by the Computational Manufacturing Alliance, a consortium of companies dedicated to expanding the scope of integrated manufacturing systems. In the first of two demonstrations, the Compufacturing Alliance demonstrated how an integrated and automated assembly process called Fastener Installation Live Link Systems can reduce fastener installation time on aircraft parts by up to 30% using automation for data handling. The second demonstration, called In-Process Metrology, showed how an application using the Compufacturing concepts and digital-thread data flow could tightly integrate metrology and automation. The Alliance is preparing to take the next step in digital thread integration -- defining and developing a new standard for data exchange between aerospace manufacturing systems, Michael Kleemann, Variation Reduction Solutions Inc, concludes.
