Developing Smart Tools for the Airbus Factory
- Analytics & Modeling - Digital Twin / Simulation
- Product Research & Development
- Process Control & Optimization
Manufacturing and assembly of aircraft, which involves tens of thousands of steps that must be followed by the operators, and a single mistake in the process could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix, makes the room for error very small.
Adding intelligence to the tools and shopfloor systems to help simplify the production process and improve production efficiency by managing and checking the tasks the operator is completing. Using the NI System on Module, we can quickly prototype these smart tools. Software Components - NI Linux Real-Time OS - LabVIEW FPGA Module
