The aviation sector was completely grounded in 2020 for the first time since the world saw the maiden flight by the White brothers. As Covid-19 keeps workers away from sites, AM/VR-driven technologies offer the best options to handle disruption in aircraft production, repair, and maintenance with expert-guided troubleshooting. The manufacturers need to shift to remote technology to avail cost-effective services of highly trained technicians. Going digital will help promote social distancing in today’s uncertain times and beyond to give wings to the world of aviation.
Extremely high-level ongoing digitization is a challenge to the aerospace supply chain that often spans the entire globe. Increasing a closer collaboration is required to meet tight deadlines. Also in focus is cybersecurity, which assumes vital importance in continuous technological developments.
