Portals

An aerospace enterprise wanted to achieve operational excellence on the shop floor. The Tier-1 supplier had a business imperative: streamline processes from sourcing of raw materials to production of composite parts.

Infosys combined cutting-edge technologies to transform composite manufacturing while boosting aircraft parts maintenance and inventory management.

Key Challenges

  • Combinations and permutations of fibers, fabric raw materials, tools and molds, and process sensitive autoclave and ovens require management of several moving parts
  • Cold storage, automated tape laying and fiber placement machines, and autoclave used in composite manufacturing should comply with stringent process and regulatory guidelines

The Solution

Artificial intelligence drives operational excellence on the shop floor

Infosys capitalized on sensor data across the lifecycle from source of raw materials to finished composite parts. Data analytics enhanced the quality of production, reduced industrial waste, and boosted productivity.

Our team leveraged Artificial Intelligence (AI) to capture business rules, heuristics, and experiential knowledge to enhance the process of composite manufacturing. We used Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality (AR / VR) to reduce the Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) of assets such as autoclave on the shop floor.

Technology enhances composite manufacturing inside-out

  • Enhances operations, maintenance, and safety
  • Drives aircraft parts maintenance and inventory management strategies
  • Ensures optimal use of resources
