New Product Introduction Aerospace & Defense

Handling the Complexity of the Introduction of New Products into the Manufacturing Environment, Streamlining Project and Program Management, Accelerating Production Ramp-up
Date: 25th & 26th September 2008
Venue: Hotel Steigenberger Airport, Frankfurt, Germany
Jet Fuel for Rising Shares in Aerospace & Defense Market: Rapid New Product Introduction Processes

The aerospace and defense (A&D) market is changing rapidly and involves technologically superior products as well as extremely complex processes and systems. A&D is facing many challenges, such as reducing time-to-market, rising costs, rapid changes in technology, faster innovation cycles which directly affect an A&D company’s new product introduction (NPI) which is a critical issue for market success.

Therefore aerospace & defense companies, which acts in a collaborative extended enterprise environment, are committed to fast ramp-up and manufacturing processes in order to stay competitive in today’s market.

The aerospace & defense companies are facing their biggest market ever resulting in record production levels. A&D companies must deploy systems and practices that meet the need to faster time-to-profit while providing high quality and flexibility in engineering and manufacturing processes. This is not an easy task when faced with project driven manufacturing.

The conference New Product Introduction Aerospace & Defense (September 25 & 26, 2008, Frankfurt/Germany) will deal with the topic. Attending this conference will allow A&D Managers to uncover and retain the key to bring innovative products faster to market and will provide a closer look into major players` success stories.


Key Topics:
  • Fast ramp-up and effective NPI process design as a defining competitive advantage
  • Achieving significant reductions in new product and program ramp-up cycles
  • Lean and rapid product development
  • Rapid prototyping and lean manufacturing
  • Industrialisation of new programs in a global environment

Who should attend?
Directors, Heads of Department, Vice Presidents, Managers and Executives responsible for:

•Project Management, Program Management
•Manufacturing, Manufacturing Engineering, Production Engineering, Production Launch
•Ramp-up Management
•Project Engineering
•Product Development
•Continuous Improvement
•Technical Planning
•Order Management
•New Program Management
•Electronic- / Mechatronics-Development & Manufacturing
•Quality Engineering / Engineering Systems

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
