Airbus Defence and Space Establishes Framework for Digital Twin Aircraft
Airbus Defence and Space is fully immersed in the digital transformation. Following the Model-Based System Engineering methodology, Airbus aims to generate a digital twin aircraft for the A330 MRTT project. This process consists of digitizing the requirements, functionalities, and design at all levels—conceptual, detailed design, manufacturing, verification, and customer support—and enabling end-to-end traceability that goes both ways, from requirements to element and from element to requirements.
Airbus Defence and Space to establish a common framework based on four fundamental pillars: requirements, model, simulation, and traceability.
- Saved time by automatically generating processes such as wire naming
- Used a common framework to develop an end-to-end traceability
- Explored the effects of faults during simulation in real time
- Automatically generated tests to compare virtual model against real model
