SME recently spoke with Tyler Rup, applications engineer at Lockheed Martin, to discuss automating the Digital Thread for aerospace assembly. He has five years of professional experience working in automation, metrology, additive manufacturing, and other advanced manufacturing technologies.
Rup is a featured presenter at this year’s AeroDef event.
From having everything in hard copy, to now having everything in the cloud is one example of how disruptive technologies have really changed the way we live. What’s the one quality you believe manufacturers need to keep within their organization and within their people to remain competitive?
No matter how drastically the industry changes the one thing that all businesses will need to make sure they retain is flexibility. The ability to adapt to new challenges and continue to grow and evolve alongside the industry and technology will be the quality that keeps businesses going.
