UAC’s subsidiaries are actively implementing digital technologies, aimed to solve the main task - increasing the current and future competitiveness of Russian aircraft on the global market, - said President of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Yury Slyusar during a session at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
UAC’s President believes that all aircraft construction programs within UAC should be based on new digital solutions. "For us, it is crucially important to reduce the time to enter the market, we need to design promptly, launch aircraft production faster, improve service processes, and the life cycle of the product should be longer," he said. "All this is possible only on the basis of the solutions that the new digital economy offers, and for us its development is an absolute priority," Yury Slyusar stressed.
Irkut Corporation develops and manufactures MC-21 aircraft on the basis of integrated application of new-generation digital technologies.
All participants of the program work within the unified informational environment.
The key component of this medium is the airliner's electronic mock-up which contains comprehensive information on the aircraft as the whole, its units, systems, and equipment at all stages of its life cycle. The electronic mock-up is constantly detalized and developed.
