Expensive raw material and the complexity of manufacturing processes increases the risk level in composite technology. Issues like sensitive raw material with short shelf lifes and wide range of manufacturing variables must be closely controlled. Appropriate tooling, manufacturing techniques, automated manufacturing and inspection techniques for composite materials will result in competitive products. Considering these issues, a data management application in composite manufacturing at an aerospace manufacturer will be presented.
- Determine the scope of a data management system for composite manufacturing processes
- Define potential problem areas which can be faced during deployment of a data management system for composite manufacturing
- Discuss future trends in data management in composite manufacturing supported by emerging technologies
