As the production rates of aircraft made from composites increase, manufacturers are looking to automation as a means of increasing productivity and quality. To improve the likelihood for success with automation, several factors must be considered when evaluating whether a process is a candidate to be automated, specifically using industrial robots. This presentation will outline Genesis Systems Group’s approach to applying robotic and not-robotic automation to common and emerging processes used in the aerospace industry. Examples and methods for evaluating risk, return on investment and system concepts will be discussed.
- Know what to consider prior to implementing automation
- Prioritize process prior to automation method
- Recognize how automation is becoming a priority in aerospace manufacturing
Why Is It Important?
Aerospace manufacturers are under pressure to improve productivity to meet increased rates. To achieve the intended goals, automation must be implemented wisely.
