What the Aerospace Industry Can Learn from the Automotive Sector

The correlation between the automotive and aerospace markets holds more similarities than people think, offering a valuable learning opportunity for the aerospace sector. One significant area of overlap lies in data – both sectors deal with assessing facility performance and equipment efficiency. The use of commercial data acquisition hardware and open architecture software are enabling real-time insights about facility manufacturing and test equipment, machines and tools.

For Tech Briefs’ Expert Insight series, Darryn La Zar, Senior Business Development Director at ACS, provides perspective on how the aerospace industry can update its approach to data acquisition with a focus on product life cycles, obsolete equipment, and managing risk. Darryn also spoke with Aerospace & Defense Technology about the experience ACS has gained in optimizing electric vehicle performance that can be leveraged in developing electric aircraft test and research facilities.
