Does Boeing’s New Workflow Signal a Shift in Engineering?
- With a digital twin engineering workflow, you can visualize your assembly line and design at the same time; you no longer have to wait for a physical prototype to get built before you start putting the assembly line together.
- This process requires the right workflow and change in culture around teamwork, but if done right, it can lower the cost of failure.
- You need to be able to design the product up front so that you can later push corrections through software modules to the product as you find issues.
Boeing has plans to switch to an entirely different engineering workflow; to produce its planes, the company will start to use a digital twin engineering workflow, aiming to improve efficiency and collaboration. With this digital and physical coordination between workflows, digital twin engineering places an increased focus on the relationship between design teams, engineering teams and manufacturing teams. MarketScale spoke with Maziar Adl, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Gocious LLC, on what sort of impact this new workflow could have on Boeing professionals, Boeing’s planes, and general production speed.
