Flexible hybrid electronics for production efficencies (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Flexible Hybrid Electronic (FHE) systems are being evaluated for aircraft production and test applications that will interact with factory Internet of Things (IoT) architectures that are being implemented for efficiency improvements in production facilities. Deployment of wireless systems is an enabler for a reduction is wires and cables for test and production which translates to simpler integration and reduced test planning and execution. Deployment in the production environment enables real time monitoring of assets for location and health and provides ubiquitous data collectors to provide meaningful data analytic solutions. The information presented will cover FHE developments on four NextFlex consortium funded efforts and the current status of a IoT enabled sensor system. The usefulness of the new technology for acquisition of data that is useful for aircraft ground operations and sensor systems that enable production efficiencies will be addressed.
