ITI has developed an Evolved Model-Based Design process that enables agile production from early concept/requirements design cycles through the product support/sustainment lifecycle phases. This is accomplished via a series of actions triggered throughout the engineering process beginning with Reverse Engineering Integration.
Reverse Engineering Integration (Procurement Quality Data Package) is a requirements gathering and determination assessment based on available technical documentation. It consists of a rapid Analysis of Engineering Data Package (OEM TDPs) and translation to Modern Specs/Standards. This includes material equivalency/sourcing/testing/traceability analysis and rapid tooling and process equivalency analysis. Data gathered is translated into our Model-Based Digital Engineering Data Package. Internal engineering tools, equipment, and expertise fill in gaps where data is not available. This may include CMM, advanced 3D scanning, modeling, and model comparison techniques. Each action and worklfow step is tracked and documented throughout the process.
The Digital Thread Model Driven Process is executed to establish the initial Process setup, Tooling, Manufacture Quality, Product Conformance requirements, and Test plans. Bill of Material and Bill of Process (Developed into Libraries by part type) are generated based on the Digital Technical Data Package. Network Management maps the production execution based on “Best for part class or process type”. Business rule processes trigger SAR & Airworthiness Package production and Coordination/Approval workflows upon project initiation.
