Systems & Equipment Installation

Reduce program costs, improve schedules

Engineering and Manufacturing operations and leaders face the challenges of ensuring that the designs meet specifications and are fully validated against manufacturing requirements, respectively. Systems & Equipment Installation, part of the Co-Design to Target solution, provides design validation against requirements and other performance criteria such as manufacturability through continuous and robust simulations. If also offers the ability to achieve engineering and manufacturing excellence by optimizing value streams or functional disciplines. For example, a simulation analyst, airframe structure engineer and manufacturing engineer can collaborate and converge faster on the detailed definition of airframe components that match weight targets, mechanical robustness and producibility specifications.

The Co-Design to Target solution also integrates value streams to bring together multiple functions (e.g., systems engineers, electrical and fluidics architects and engineers) to collaborate and converge quicker on a producible and mountable detailed definition of electrical harnesses, fluidics and hydraulics circuits, etc., to meet weight targets, functional specifications (topology and connectivity) and installation rules. This robust design integration from multiple disciplines and sources provides increased confidence that the accelerated maturity of the product definition is on target.

Key Highlights and Benefits:

  • Produce the right design the first time with integrated simulations and early integration of producibility constraints.
  • Accelerate design maturity with design re-use, and knowledge based design.
  • Achieve lean design with early design optimization that considers integrated weight, center of gravity and uses automated or semi-automated design.
