How to take intelligent assembly to the next level?
DeMeter opens up exciting new prospects for users such improving cycle time on the line, making continuous improvements to processes, and understanding production trends in order to improve long-term efficiency.
Accessibility is always going to be a challenge in aerospace assembly. From the tip of the tail to the last nut on the nascelle, every aeroplane is designed to be as space-saving, as light in weight and as aerodynamic as possible.
Automotive design takes into consideration a series of critical aspects, from passenger safety, to build and material quality, to aesthetics. It also takes into account customer expectations around comfort, diagnostics and onboard entertainment – as well as societal pressures such as reducing environmental impacts and the availability of parking space in towns and cities.
Improving productivity is most of the time considered as the key to remain competitive. But as any experienced assembly plant manager will tell you, life is not that simple. Sure, you can turn out more products in less time: but if those products are costing you more to make, or time and volume pressures lead to more defects and rework, then you gain no advantage over your competitors.
