Background & Policy context

European aircraft, engine and equipment manufacturers are facing greater challenges than ever before. The market demands that more complex products be developed with shorter lead times and more cost effectiveness, while using evolving business models involving multiple organisations.

Objectives

The aim of CRESCENDO is to contribute to:

  • 10% reduction of development lifecycle duration and cost;
  • 50% reduction in rework;
  • 20% reduction in the cost of physical tests.

In this way, the CRESCENDO project adds to the following specific targets of the aeronautical industry's Strategic Research Agenda:

  • Halve the time to market for new products with the help of advanced electronic analytical, design, manufacturing and maintenance tools, methods and processes;
  • Increase the integration of the supply chain into the network;
  • Maintain a steady and continuous fall in travel charges through substantial cuts in operating costs.

Thus, the CRESCENDO results provide the aeronautics supply chain with the means to realistically manage and mature the virtual product. Emphasis is put on functionality and components in each phase of the product engineering life cycle.

Methodology

CRESCENDO results were made available to the aeronautics supply chain via existing networks, information dissemination, training and technology transfer actions.

CRESCENDO developed the foundations for the Behavioural Digital Aircraft ('BDA'), making use of the experience and results from the VIVACE project. Main components of the BDA are:

  • the Model Store;
  • the Simulation Factory;
  • the Quality Laboratory;
  • and the Enterprise Collaboration Capabilities.

The BDA will become the new backbone for the simulation world, just as the Digital Mock-Up is today for the Product Life-cycle Management world. This is considered a challenging area for research and innovation for the next decade.

The project will be organised into subprojects: technical and business-oriented subprojects, an Enabling Capabilities subproject which will deliver the BDA and a subproject responsible for consortium management and innovation issues. CRESCENDO brings together about 60 partners from industry, research institutes, universities and technology providers.

Results

The following results (Product Breakdown Structure) can be pointed out. The CRESCENDO project has developed the foundations for what is referred to as the 'Mastered Behavioural Digital Aircraft' (MBDA). In CRESCENDO, the MBDA is considered to comprise the following:

  • The 'Behavioural Digital Aircraft' (BDA), as a federated and orchestrated suite of enabling capabilities for models, data and information management (the Model Store). This is combined with: simulation process management (the Simulation Factory), modelling & simulation quality management methods/procedures (the Quality Laboratory), and supported by information & knowledge sharing to enable cross-enterprise decision-making (the Enterprise Collaboration).
  • The complete range of models and simulations that describe the behavioural, functional and operational aspects of the whole aircraft and constituent systems (e.g. engines, avionics, fuel systems), sub-systems, and components.
