Research Institution
This proposal describes 6 technologies that will function synergistically to greatly enhance both production and sustainment operations, by verifying part and tool use and storage, task completion, and FOD prevention.DSC proposes to develop and demonstrate a Digital Process Inspection Verification (DPIV) that displays point of use, step-by-step assembly guidance instructions while verifying and documenting assembly process progress.Delta Sigma Company (DSC) has been involved in improving the Digital Thread for the past 10 years.ProjectionWorks, DSCs patented Augmented Reality (AR) system, technicians are provided work instructions for mechanical and electrical assembly processes, inspection, and verification that guide them in a Smart Factory environment that is fully paperless.When AR is integrated with automated tools, gages, and advanced metrology instruments, highly automated work can be carried out by humans, with massive amounts of measurement data to support the digital twin.All of this can happen, fully documented, in less time than it takes to do the work today without the measurements and documentation.This proposal also includes a FOD detection sensor to be developed by DSC, that will be used in conjunction with the AR system.
