Featured Success Stories
Finding The Right Supplier for Precision Parts – The First Time
It can take months to manufacture a newly designed precision part, so it is crucial for manufacturers to choose suppliers with the ability to produce accurate parts the first time. This MxD project led by Boeing developed a software tool that virtually replicates a supplier’s machines and verifies their ability to produce parts to the required design specifications.
Human Workflow Digital Twin: Fatigue and Motion Analyses
This project will develop a new framework for a human– centered digital twin by developing and demonstrating a viable means to measure worker motion and fatigue during manufacturing assembly tasks.
