GD&T and Customer Involvement at Embraer Create Incredible Aircraft

Embraer has Created New Interiors for Its Aircraft Using Dimensional Engineering and Strong Support from Customers

In Business Jet Interiors International, Embraer is featured in an article called jointeffort, discussing the new Legacy 450 and 500 and the efforts Embraer and its suppliers have put forth to completely redesign the aircrafts' interiors. This article briefly discusses some of the concepts put forth in jointeffort, but does not include customer data.

You can find the original article here on page 64:http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/e0f990f9#/e0f990f9/1

As a key element to the process of creating these resplendent interiors, Embraer incorporated GD&T, Geometric Dimensiong and Tolerancing, that enables communication of key dimensional features throughout the organization. With GD&T, manufacturers and designers can clearly define dimensional specifications and measurement plans, thus allowing the manufacturers to build to the exact designs that Embraer conceived.

CATIA V5 to 3DCS: Use Publication to Save Time

CATIA V5 to 3DCS: Use Publication to Save Time 

A publication acts as a reference to a geometric or datum entity in CATIA V5.


In 3DCS Variation Analyst CAA V5 Based, users can use published surfaces that copy the surface name, surface color and other properties. 

In addition to speeding up dimensional analysis, using this method also improves linking between components in your tree.
