Description of the job
Airbus (Nantes) is looking for an intern (m/f) for a 6-month internship.
In the context of the SA programme ramp-up, the industrial assembly process of centre wing boxes the [mechanical heart of the A/C] (or CWB = Centre Wing Box) is becoming a major industrial risk due to the joining of sub-assemblies (S/E) that generate a virtual impossibility of reallocation before general assembly and thus an intolerance to production hazards.
Your internship will take place in 2 steps:
Step 1 will be to:
· Assess the AS IS situation of the current process by performing an in detail analysis and identifying parameters and key constraints,
· Produce benches on the assembly process of constituent assemblies of complex structures (CWB, WB, others, etc.)
· Identify through innovation intelligence and research, the technologies available in the aeronautical field but also in industries practising precision assembly in a broad sense (assembly by measuring, shimming, etc.)
Based on the 3 previous achievements (step 1), the study manager will propose various potential industrial processes in order to liberate the joining of S/E.
For each of them, the following information must be established:
· RC impact (recurrent cost in production),
· Industrial layout,
· Possibility of initiating a rate 60 speed,
· NRC cost of process changes (means costs and management of concurrent activity in transitory phase to achieve a meaningful result, technical bases will be necessary (tolerance, mechanics, tooling, etc.), but also the ability to research information and exchange with multiple functions (method, tooling, engineering preparation, production, etc.) and creativity and innovation with a pragmatic approach.
This internship will start on 1st February 2017 (subject to some flexibility).
