PODCAST: Aziz Tahiri of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence on how advanced technology can solve AAM’s biggest challenges

Our next pod­cast episode is live! This week, we were joined by Aziz Tahiri, VP of Glob­al Aero­space and Defence at Hexa­gon Man­u­fac­tur­ing Intel­li­gence.

Recent excite­ment and invest­ment in the eVTOL air­craft indus­try has been dri­ven by their poten­tial to reduce emis­sions, improve safe­ty and trans­form urban trans­porta­tion.

But in prac­tice, major chal­lenges must first be over­come, includ­ing design­ing high­ly com­plex sys­tems, main­tain­ing qual­i­ty across vast and var­ied sup­ply chains, and meet­ing strin­gent reg­u­la­tions – all with­in a man­u­fac­tur­ing ecosys­tem bur­dened by ris­ing costs and a scarci­ty of skilled labour.

In this episode, Aziz talks about the impor­tance of machine learn­ing and sim­u­la­tion in the Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty indus­try, and how they can be used to deliv­er the light­weight, low car­bon designs eVTOL air­craft need.

We go into detail about vir­tu­al real­i­ty train­ing pro­grammes and their ben­e­fits when quick­ly upskilling new engi­neers, and the role addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing can play in the design and build phase.
