Aerospace and Defense – Reaching new heights with 3D engineering solutions


Aerospace and Defense industry in India has been witnessing an unprecedented growth in the recent years and we are on the threshold of making ourselves a self-reliant nation in Aerospace engineering. With India rapidly developing into a manufacturing hub for world corporations, the supply chains demand agility and enhanced performance.

The burning demand of the industry is a driven and controlled execution, operational efficiency and digital continuity offering an efficient target delivery. To have these values assured, the industry demands advanced tools and production applications. From small aerospace and defense suppliers to bigger ones, there is a perpetual pressure to improve gross margins, revenues and market share. The high demand hence calls for higher production rates while in-time delivery, requiring greater production flexibility from suppliers.


3D Technology reforming Aerospace Engineering


Over the last decade, 3D technology has been serving several industries in cementing technology as an engineering linchpin. Advance 3D solutions gear up the aviation industry in bearing on new challenges ranging from securing program performance and attracting the next generation of experts to pursue new markets and take on new competitors.2 (1)
Advanced 3D solutions help them integrate aerospace engineering processes from the proposal phase downstream through engineering, manufacturing, and all the way to delivery.


With Industry solutions providing improved operational efficiency and proposal development, suppliers win more business. Here’s how.

Using a single platform for operational efficiency and proposal development increases collaboration across teams, hence pro-actively manages the time constrained bidding process. With advanced industry solutions, end-to-end knowledge is captured throughout the process, hence, ensuring repeat-ability and re-usability. Existing designs can be improved during manufacturing and performance with simulations and downstream functions. As a result, companies meet customer requirements better with reduced risks by meeting better specification.

Improved operational efficiency is not all that advanced 3D solutions give you. Lean practices like reuse of standard rules and templates continue attributing to operational efficiency. Starting from the concept phase to the manufacturing stage, digital continuity reduces silos as the engineers refer to a common reference.3 (1) The common single source definition helps the aerospace engineering companies achieve early design optimization and enhance collaboration across disciplines. 3D solutions are game changers for companies which design or manufacture aerospace parts and systems as the process drives them in a connected way allowing suppliers to deliver in-time.

Along with delivering to commitments, a company also demands a centralized management of the whole program data, key processes and related technology. All of the interrelated functions of the project must be organized as a unified whole for delivery-to-contract and profit. 3D design Solutions for aerospace engineering help make real-time collaboration. You can instantly view key performance indicators and full traceability to deliverables, which enables suppliers to govern projects meeting customer specifications. The attribute of having the complete traceability possible, the suppliers can simplify change management with automatic tracking of the full documentation and history of part modifications. This controlled execution enables the companies with the ability to manage valuable company data securely and collaborate with multiple customers across multiple projects.
