How AI Impacts the Aerospace and Defense Sector

By Manufacturing Technology Insights | Monday, December 28, 2020

The aerospace and defense sector uses new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) to improve their production.

FREMONT, CA: The recent 2020 Technology Trends and the Future of Work report by DXC Technology made it clear that technology will significantly affect the workplace. But it is also applicable to aerospace and defense firms that are marked by massive production facilities employing thousands of workers employed on assembly lines and shop floors.

Artificial intelligence gains a position

In aerospace and defense, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can supply the fundamental technologies in other fields such as augmented and virtual reality. These methods are used to enhance staff preparation and capture the institutional experience of employees who exit the workforce. In manufacturing and maintenance situations, AI-assisted voice-enabled systems will be used more commonly to allow staff to access information and perform other tasks utilizing voice commands without needing to hold down their tools.

Data's escalating value

For A&D businesses, the growing value of knowledge is the real story. Data collection for aerospace companies to promote research is still an unfamiliar thing, but their perception of its power is advancing rapidly. Almost every major initiative planned by aerospace companies in the next few years relies on enhancing data collection and enabling more data-driven decision-making, with the value that new tools will derive from sensors embedded in manufacturing equipment and finished goods. Manufacturers now understand how data can be utilized to increase efficiency, optimize processes, boost production throughput, and improve the product's quality.

An emphasis on teams and tech-savvy leadership

The most long-term success is likely to be enjoyed by organizations who choose to develop around the teamwork and leadership patterns outlined in the report. A&D organizations already recognize the importance of teams and collaboration. But restructuring to expand integrated teams that include the entire enterprise, its suppliers, and partners will become much more relevant in the coming years.

New leaders will push for innovations that can enhance the business's speed, flexibility, competitiveness, and innovative advantage. These leaders work at the C level as technology evangelists to influence digital strategies while participating in key developments like smart products, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property growth, and learning.
