AeroDef Sessions To Show How OEMs, Suppliers Are Creating An Aerospace and Defense Manufacturing ‘Digital Thread’

ANAHEIM, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 9, 2011 — The concept of a digital thread – several supply chain partners with different skill sets, systems and processes, working together with OEMs to integrate aerospace and defense manufacturing to a greater degree than has ever been accomplished in the past – will be the focus of more than 15 sessions at the AeroDef Manufacturing Exposition and Conference, April 5-7, in Anaheim, Calif.

“Accomplishing a ‘Digital Thread’ requires the manufacturing technologists to come on board at the same time the engineering designers are considering the configuration,” Paul Oldroyd, technical fellow, Bell Helicopter, and a member of the AeroDef Executive Committee, explains. “It’s a different development model for the industry, but one of the most important. It’s the future of where aerospace manufacturing technology’s going.”
