Resilience in Aviation
Pandemic, sustainability and efficiency targets pose ongoing challenges for the aviation industry: It must continue to develop propulsion concepts and tap into new materials and manufacturing processes. Cross-domain digital twins harbor previously untapped potential for mastering growing requirements with the help of digitization, as a practical example from the production of aerospace components shows in the white paper. The trend topic of sustainability drives innovation and complements productivity, quality and costs as criteria for strategic corporate decisions. Awareness of this must be consolidated among personnel, as well as the ability to manage resilient processes. Such processes ensure the successful handling of disruptions. In this way, a disruption can even turn into an opportunity. In the white paper, the Fraunhofer IPT pools its expert knowledge on how the dimensions of "technology", "digitalization", "sustainability" and "employees" can be combined in the context of aviation in order to seize this opportunity.
