  1. 1. Cost Optimization of Aircraft Structures

    Author : Markus Kaufmann; Dan Zenkert; Malin Åkermo; Per Wennhage; Erik Lund; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aircraft structures; optimization; cost estimation; manufacturing cost; direct operating cost; multiobjective optimization; multidisciplinary optimization; composites; airframe design; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Vehicle engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Composite structures can lower the weight of an airliner significantly. Due to the higher process complexity and the high material cost, however, the low weight often comes with a significant increase in production cost. The application of cost-effective design strategies is one mean to meet this challenge. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Manufacturing Strategies : Implementation and utilization at some Swedish manufacturing industries

    University dissertation from Linköpings Universitet, Linköping
