CHANGING AEROSPACE MANUFACTURING PROCESSES DRIVES COMPLEXITY
Few industries span the manufacturing process spectrum like aerospace. Investment casting, autoclave curing, drilling and electronics assembly are just a sample of the technologies maintenance personnel contend with every day. Process controls are growing even more complex with PLCs and proximity sensors giving way to PCs and vision systems. Staying on top of changing technologies is a challenge that affects maintenance teams in every aerospace manufacturer.
New materials and manufacturing technologies coupled with rigorous quality regimens place immense demands as well. Equipment is becoming more complex by the day, while an aging workforce struggles to develop the skills needed to keep it in top condition – and it’s going to get harder as they begin to retire. For consistent quality and stable output, it’s essential to have a solid maintenance program.
