DCS Presents Quality Assurance of Major Aerospace Components through Automated Process Capability Analysis at SME AeroDef 2015 in Dallas, Texas

Dimensional Control Systems will highlight the benefits of using automated process capability analyses to improve quality assurance of major aerospace components throughout the product life cycle in order to reduce costs of quality stemming from scrap, rework and non-conformances.


Dallas, Texas – Dimensional Control Systems (DCS) will be presenting “Quality Assurance of Major Aerospace Components through Automated Process Capability Analysis” at the 2015 AeroDef Manufacturing and Composites Manufacturing event at the Hilton Anatole, Dallas Texas April 20 -23.This presentation showcases how aerospace OEM’s and suppliers can use process capability indices to monitor their manufacturing across the entire product life cycle, and highlight methods of automating the reporting and analysis throughout the process.


The aerospace industry is continually becoming more competitive. With an aircraft manufacturer's large number of individual components, and the large number of suppliers used to fabricate these components, it can be daunting to manage the quality of all parts of the assembly in an accurate, timely and actionable manner.

This paper focuses on a case study solution for setting up and monitoring the process capability of machined parts at an aircraft OEM. By creating standardized measurement plans and automating the analysis of the measured output, users can understand individual machine process performance and overall process performance in real time, as well as through automated reporting.

This solution begins in the design phase using 3D simulation to drive measurement plan authoring. This establishes clear guidelines to make sure measured data is accurate and reliable. The measured data outputs are sent into the database and analyzed, being reported as a process capability index. This is monitored in real time to track quality across the organization. Issues are reported and root caused using drill downs to find the source.

By showing outputs and set up, reinforced by customer data, DCS will demonstrate the method of creating actionable reporting and quality tracking for process capability at a major aerospace OEM. 


AeroDef 2015 brings together leaders from aerospace OEMs, suppliers and potential partners to meet the challenge of increasing demand: both in number and technical level of the aircraft. With hundreds of aerospace and defense manufacturing solutions being presented in technical sessions and discussions, industry professionals will be able to share their experience and learn from other experts in the field.
