3-D-Technologie kann Kosten für Ersatzteile in der Luftfahrt senken

Der 3-D-Druck in der Luftfahrtindustrie dürfte in naher Zukunft wahrscheinlich eher für Ersatzteile anstatt für proprietäre Teile genutzt werden, so eine jährliche Umfrage von Oliver Wyman.

In der MRO-Umfrage des Jahres 2014 gaben 60 Prozent der Befragten an, dass die Industrie in erster Linie durch niedrigere Kosten für Ersatzteile von der aufkeimenden adaptiven Fertigungstechnologie profitieren werde, und 54 Prozent meinten, dass die Technologie eine Verringerung der Investitionen in den Lagerbestand nach sich ziehen könnte. Nur 40 Prozent der Befragten gehen davon aus, dass die Technologie eine weitere Möglichkeit für hochwertigere Ersatzteile bieten wird.

„Während der 3-D-Druck in jeder Branche das Potenzial hat, den Schutz bestehender proprietärer Technologie auszuhöhlen, gehen die Branchenvertreter laut den Umfrageergebnissen davon aus, dass die Originalteilehersteller Wege finden, um ihre Technologie vor adaptiven Fertigungsmöglichkeiten von Dritten zu schützen“, sagte Chris Spafford, Oliver Wyman Partner, der die Umfrage zu Wartung, Reparatur und Instandhaltung in der Luftfahrt geleitet hat.

Die diesjährige Umfrage zeigt außerdem, dass die Maßnahmen im Bereich Fusionen und Übernahmen für unabhängige Wartungsunternehmen an Fahrt aufnehmen. Hier gehen die meisten Aktivitäten von größeren MRO-Unternehmen und privaten Beteiligungsgesellschaften aus.

Die Umfrage untermauert ferner, dass US-amerikanische Fluggesellschaften eine Rückverlegung von Flugzeuginstandhaltungsarbeiten aus dem Ausland in die USA vornehmen. In der diesjährigen Umfrage gaben 60 Prozent der Vertreter von Fluggesellschaften an, dass sie bereit seien, bis zu fünf Prozent mehr für einen einheimischen Anbieter auszugeben, während 20 Prozent ihre Bereitschaft bekundeten, bis zu 15 Prozent höhere Kosten zu akzeptieren.

Dies ist für Fluggerätemechaniker erfreulich: 32 Prozent der befragten nordamerikanischen MRO-Unternehmen sagten, dass sie Einstellungen vornehmen, um ihre Aktivitäten auszubauen, während 48 Prozent angaben, dass sie Mitarbeiter einstellen, um den Personalbestand aufrechtzuerhalten.

Der vollständige Bericht steht zur Verfügung unter MRO Survey 2014 Findings.

With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lee Williams, a producer of the first smartphones and tablets, will talk about how he is now applying his experience in mobile technology to the design and development of the next generation of Environmental and Sustainability Services at ETwater. He will explain how M2M controllers work through wirelessly connected remote controls; and specifically delve into a retrofit option that reverse-engineers control codes of existing conventional controller systems so they don't have to be replaced and are instantly converted to become smart, connected devices.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet.
