(Session Code: AMAF108)

Room 251E  10:00 a.m.

This section seeks to attract papers and encourage debate on advances in the installation of aircraft systems. Possible areas of interest could include the use of metrology and automation during the installation of components such as movables and flap beams as well as modular build concepts and system installation in jig. The session also aims to cover human factors issues such as confined space working and access during installation of systems such as fuel, hydraulics, bleed air and electrics.
