Customer-centric product design with customer-specific equipment alternatives require manufacturing optimisation with an effective customising process. In addition, varied new derivatives always have to be able to be derived from basic aircraft models within a short time.
Bertrandt supports OEMs in the necessary standardisation and harmonisation of processes and components. Alongside end-to-end development expertise, this requires a detailed knowledge of the product ranges, comprehensive tool know-how and experience in production optimisation and industrial ramp-up.
Through extensive knowledge of development and manufacturing processes, Bertrandt also takes on testing, approval and authorisation documentation tasks (delegation of signature authority).
For production support, Bertrandt flexibly supplies additional resources, supporting the manufacturing process from production preparation to final assembly.
Augmented reality projects (AR) in manufacturing
AR applications by Bertrandt facilitate the manufacturing and quality assurance process in aircraft assembly. While, for example, an employee in manufacturing assembles parts with screws, an AR app uses sensors and cameras and the required metadata from a database to determine the part classification and the torque required to tighten the screw in question. The app automatically sends this information to the intelligent tool, thus ensuring the assembly stage is carried out up to standard.
The production stage is recorded by the AR app, while the video record and real data are archived for quality assurance.
The production employee independently trains for final assembly tasks using a further AR app (e-learning). In a mock-up via data glasses, information on the task and visualisations of the work stages are shown and practised using exercises and tests.
