2:35pm - 3:05pm The Aerospace & Defense PLM Action Group
Henrik WEIMER - AIRBUS
Senior manager for PLM architecture, innovation and plan
Jean-François CUGY - DASSAULT AVIATION
Senior expert for configuration managementIn February 2014, four major aerospace OEMs came together to form the Aerospace & Defense PLM Action Group. The Group’s mission is to set direction for the aerospace & defense industry on topics related to Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). This includes promoting, not duplicating, the work of standards bodies, and to communicate with a unified voice to PLM solution providers. These activities are considered for major OEM as key issue for their respective Transformation of their industries. This presentation will provide insight into the intent, operational model and activities of the Group. We will provide a short synthesis of current projects, to show how this open collaboration is addressed industry-wide pain points.
2:35pm - 0:05pm New Peel Shims for high-temperature applications
Christoph MARTIN - GEORG MARTIN GmbH
CEOGeorg Martin GmbH is pleased to announce a new method to create detachable connections between shim foil layers. By using laser welding instead of bonding MARTIN® creates special non-permanent connections for shim packs. This has opened new opportunities for shim applications in the area of aviation assembly in case of temperatures higher than 200 degrees. Furthermore, this new product is highly interesting for bearing clearance adjustment work. A high precision comes along with a high shim stiffness and reduced danger of potential lubrication contamination. In addition, the product is safer and faster to use than normal Peel shims.
3:10pm - 3:40pm PLM-AG / Multi-view Bill of Material
Javier RAINÉS - AIRBUS
Configuration mangement expertA Smart Collaboration between Aircraft Manufacturers to Harmonize the Process and PLM Solution for Multi-view BOM Management Since 2017, the A&D PLM Action Group’s Multi-view BOM project team has been working to produce an understandable set of common high-level requirements for managing the multi-view BOM from Design to Manufacturing with the aim of translating them into true PLM solutions. In a smart collaboration approach, subject matter experts from the group member companies, such as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Dassault Aviation, Embraer, GE Aviation, Gulfstream and Rolls-Royce regularly teleconference to exchange information and ideas, and physically meet twice a year to confirm consensus and consolidate their work and conclusions. This presentation will describe the operating model that has been put in place; topics identified by the team that need to be addressed and the Position Paper that cover current results of their job.
3:10pm - 3:40pm The benefits of the certified additive manufacturing in Aerospace sector
Niccolo GIANNELLI - STRATASYS
Aerospace application and account manager EMEADiscover how certified additive manufacturing is a game changer in the aerospace industry with many different applications that improve production efficiency and flight performance while simplifying inventory with strong and lightweight parts with innovative materials . From jigs and fixtures, to tooling for composite parts Stratasys has elevated the additive manufacturing to another level thanks to its unique approach of certified and traceable material and established repeatable processes that have been certified by the main industry leaders. This workshop will specifically highlight the “Aircraft interiors certification solution”, a process that meets Aerospace traceability and quality standards.
3:45pm - 4:50pm Tunisia, a favored destination for the aeronautical components sector

3:45pm - 4:15pm Increase of productivity for flexforming processes via numerical optimisation of tool surface to reduce springback
Grégoire BAZIN - STELIA AEROSPACE
Forming project leader and process simulation specialistStelia Aerospace produces big aluminium parts for the aeronautics industry through a forming process called “Flexforming”. A flat blank is positioned on a shape (the “punch”) and a flexible rubber pad is laid on top of it. Above this, a rubber diaphragm is then inflated with a fluid under pressure so that the group “blank + rubber pad” is deformed, until the blank completely covers the punch and takes its shape. Today, the punch is machined according to the the theoretical shape we want to achieve for the final part. When the pressure is removed from the blank, stresses are released, causing geometrical displacement in the part – the springback – therefore the final part does not correspond to the wanted shape any more. The part needs then to be reworked in the toolshop to ensure a good geometry. This rework can be complex, can take a long time and cost a lot of money; it also needs to be carried out by experts. The aim of this joint project “Stelia Aerospace/AutoForm” was to work on several parts, first to check the accuracy of springback prediction via numerical simulation. Then the punch geometry was modified thanks to AutoForm-Compensator, a numerical tool dedicated to springback compensation, in order to reduce rework and ensure an accurate final shape of the parts.
4:20pm - 4:50pm Predict equipment failures before they happen to deliver next-generation services
Richard MURAWKA - 4CAD GROUP
Innovation directorIn the age of connected equipment, industrial companies want to capitalize on their installed base and create closer relationships with customers to deliver next-generation services. By harnessing the Industrial IoT (IIoT) and combining the power of machine data, conditions monitoring, predictive analytics, real-time asset alerts and maintenance execution you can make contractual uptime promises and offer product-as-a-service programs. Predictive maintenance tools are not only based on data analysis. It's a fully integrated upstream and downstream communication system. How to collect and operate data through the information system in order to better answer to the customer needs ? or increase supply chain's efficiency ? Our presentation will cover these challenges.
10:10am - 10:40am AirSupply for the SME’S : Digital integration of the Supply Chain: a Key competitive factor
Laurent MARTIN-ROHMER - SUPPLYON
Country managerAirSupply is the central aerospace SCM platform that facilitates the secured and traceable communication across companies and provides valuable assistance at both operational and management level. As a result, processes with external partners are more transparent and dependable while various alert mechanisms allow exception-based management of the supply chain. AirSupply is based on technology from SupplyOn, a specialist in cross-company supply chain collaboration. In close cooperation with BoostAeroSpace, SupplyOn’s platform has been adapted to meet all requirements specific to the aerospace industry.
10:45am - 11:15am How compliance with REACH requirements is integrated into a cost reduction program
François BARBAZA - AEROPROTECT
Director of business developmentAs far as new processes are called to comply with REACh requirements the costs of R&D and industrial deployment make difficult the return on investment. Construction of an upscaled facility and implementation of latest production techniques allow to build an acceptable ROI as well as to offer competitive prices to the market.
11:20am - 11:50am EN9100 quality certification: What technical and financial aids for companies in the Occitanie region?
