A Collaborative Composite Aero Structure Development Workflow

Track: NX Product Engineering User Connection

Session Number: 170468
Date: Wed, May 10th, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM - 8:45 AM
Room: 142

Description:

Collaboration between the disciplines of analysis, design, and manufacturing for composite aerostructure development is a challenge to achieve without specialized solutions. This presentation describes approaches to achieve rapid analysis-to-design cycles for composite aerostructures. Central to these capabilities is the ability to support an awareness of the unique manufacturing constraints associated with automated layup processes, like fiber placement.
This presentation will cover the solution for composite structure sizing/preliminary design, detailed design with an emphasis on robust change management, and design for automated manufacturing. By using the flexible methodologies, you can create manufacturable, on-target designs faster with less chance for error.
We will also introduce the composite manufacturing solution for process planning that simplifies the effort to scale up for composite production, either manual or automated. Lack of data control and poorly integrated systems can lead to quality issues and waste, reducing economies of scale. This will present approaches for process planning, shop floor work instructions, defrosting, cutting and kitting, manual layup, curing, final quality inspections and impact analysis. These solutions are all achieved by using open architectures and enabling a coherent, enterprise-level development process.
Of benefit to designers, engineers and manufacturers in the A&D industry designing with or considering composite materials and looking for best practices for design optimization.
