Subdisciplines that operate within the broader discipline of engineering include:
From the time our designers recieve the project brief, criteria are established and concepts are generated to solve unique customer specifications. Ergonomics, styling, 3D modeling, prototype construction, and material finish are all part of the process.
Mechanical System Design
Mechanical system engineers work in areas such as plumbing (waste, water), oxygen, ECS, decompression, and structures.
Electrical System Design
The engineers in this subdiscipline create or modify electrical systems for lighting (cabin, emergency, IFE), signage, PSU wiring, and seat/PC power. They also provide programming for CSS/ACCESS, and can update ELMS.
When an aircraft is configured or reconfigured, SA engineers evaluate how these activities affect load-bearing elements. Structural analysis is performed for passenger visible products, as well as the hidden structures. The interior architecture, cabin furnishings, attach points, floor beams, seat tracks, frames, monocoque, weight, and balance are all evaluated as necessary.
Materials and Processes
M & P engineers design custom tools, program the CNC machines, research new materials, and design manufacturing processes that ensure quality parts are built every time.
Detailed installation drawings, customer formatted instructions, and job cards are provided as needed. When necessary, a liaison engineer will accompany interior kits to ensure the first shipset installs as intended.
