  • Simulation of aerospace manufacturing processes during design to identify expensive features and manufacturability issues directly from 3D CAD model
  • Reduction of late stage design churn and Engineering Change Orders (ECOs) by getting it right the first time.
  • Improvement of your negotiating position with suppliers through increased visibility to costs.

With arguably some of the world’s most complex product development programs, aerospace and defense manufacturers are experiencing considerable pressure to contain escalating product costs as they innovate using the latest materials and manufacturing processes. However, aggressive program schedules and an emphasis on optimizing designs for performance, weight, and safety leaves little time to focus on cost. As a result, extensive cost down initiatives and value engineering activities often commence after initial product release.
The most progressive manufacturers are transforming their processes by leveraging advanced software technology to Design for Manufacturability and Cost (DFMC) early in the design phase.
In this presentation, Steven Peck, a product development technology executive with 20+ years of experience, will describe how industry giants such as Honeywell Aerospace, Boeing, Spirit AeroSystems and others are responding to these market pressures.
He will discuss the application of a solution that enables:
  • Simulation of aerospace manufacturing processes during design to identify expensive features and manufacturability issues directly from 3D CAD models.
  • Evaluation of design trade-off decisions to reduce cost in real time.
  • Reduction of late stage design churn and Engineering Change Orders (ECOs) by getting it right the first time.
  • Improvement of your negotiating position with suppliers through increased visibility to costs.
Following the session, the presenter will be available to provide one-on-one sessions for analysis of your own designs that you can uploaded to a secure portal.
