Digital technologies and increased use of data are having an impact right across Rolls-Royce. We talked to Alan Newby , Director, Aerospace Technology and Future Programmes, about where the company is seeing the biggest benefits, from manufacturing and supply chain to operations.
“If we can do more of the testing in the computer before we start building hardware it’s much more efficient and allows us to solve problems much earlier before we start building vehicles,” Newby says.
He adds, “We can [also] now start using data to anticipate problems in service and solve them before they even happen.”
