GIFAS appointed Cetim as the Technologist of its Industry 4.0 Programme

GIFAS (the French aerospace industries association) has just appointed Cetim as the technological expert of its 4.0 Programme aimed at supporting the transformation of the French aeronautical sector. 

Launched at the Paris-Le Bourget Air Show 2019, this programme is to accompany 300 very small, small and medium-sized enterprises coming together from all across France for the ‘Industry of the Future’ mission with an aim to improve their competitiveness, grow their attractiveness in the sector and to increase the flexibility and reactivity of their industrial tool.

It has been provided with a budget of 23 million Euros for 3 years, financed by the French Government, regions, Opcaim (the authorised join collecting body of metalworking industries), businesses and GIFAS.

To take part, businesses must prove that they have a significant volume of activity in the sector, display a level of ‘recognised’ industrial maturity and, finally, demonstrate motivation and interest for the industry of the future. The proposed pathway consists of four parts: convince and engage managing teams, assist small and medium-sized businesses in their diagnosis, establish a roadmap and its implementation, reinforce collaboration between customers and suppliers and, finally, secure information and production systems.

How will the GIFAS’s “industry of the future” programme run? How is it financed and managed? What are the conditions to benefit from it? All the answers are in the booklet available on the GIFAS’s web site.

Presentation

With product modelling and simulation potential solutions can be virtually optimized before they are really implemented. We tend to set up a more efficient design by taking fatigue life into account and optimizing safety factors within a fiabilist approach. The main goal is to achieve much shorter development deadlines. Major improvements are experienced in the field of simulation dealing with more and more complex and multi-physical phenomena.
This technological focus includes projects relating to : fiabilist design of products, functional requirement and performance qualification checking, analysis methods based on customer needs, design of clean and silent products, simulation of product behavior and operation.

Hot topics

To help the mechanical engineering industry to anticipate and make the best strategic choices, Cetim, with support from its partners, has identified 53 technologies which are considered as priorities for the mechanical engineering sector for 2020.

  1. Eco-design
  2. Geometrical specification of products
  3. Design of reliable and safe products
  4. Integration of the human factor
  5. Digital simulation and optimisation of product or process
  6. Welding of high-performance materials
  7. Innovative design methods
