The rapidly evolving demand for cost reductions and shrinking budgets makes the application and use of automated processes within the aerospace and space industries a necessity. While some view aerospace automation as the solution to reducing costs, others view automaton technologies and processes as something that should be avoided when possible.
Misunderstandings and assumptions about these complex systems can result in the improper selection and application of these systems, often leading to undesirable interactions with other elements of the assembly process and potentially, project failure.
This three-hour workshop introduces participants to the critical components of automation necessary to be informed and knowledgeable about the acquisition, installation, and maintenance of automated systems for aerospace and space applications.
The instructor will guide participants through the types, components, operation, application, cost benefits, laws, strengths, and limitations of automaton. The information presented in this seminar will cover the breadth and scope necessary for participants to be an effective participant in the decision process when automaton has become a consideration to replacing tasks previously done by hand.
- Understand the function of automation in an aerospace factory
- Decide if automaton is right for your factory or application
- Select the right automaton for your application
- Install, transition to production, and maintain the selected automaton
- Perform a feasibility analysis and Return on Investment (ROI) for factory automaton
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for all personnel interested in acquiring an understanding of the power and pitfalls of automation before purchase and how to select and install the right automation.
