Aerospace & defense has had a bumpy ride over the past couple of years. COVID-19 hammered demand for air travel and new aircraft, and the uneven recovery from the pandemic has created major supply chain issues. ME takes on these topics and more in our November issue. The cover story, “Stretched Links, Stressed Chains in A&D,” explains how manufacturing supply chains are continuing to struggle, which is especially troublesome to the aerospace industry and its Tier suppliers. And in “Chasing Gold in A&D Manufacturing,” we look at how, in the Olympics of aerospace and defense manufacturing, devotion to accuracy and a willingness to try new technology can lead to big wins.
In our October issue, Smart Manufacturing takes you to South America, where we profile four Argentine companies—Sinteplast, QMAX, Conextube, ITPort—endeavoring to work smarter. The issue also includes an article about experts knocking down barriers to artificial intelligence. Interested in zero-downtime performance? Try “testing the machine’s blood.” And we continue beating the drum about blockchain technology—which is proving its value. Finally, make sure to read about AWS, Google and Microsoft applying their expertise in data and software to manufacturing.
