Active Project

Accelerating aerospace design and manufacturing through digital technologies

ADAM Schematic



ADAM was initiated in 2016 to help meet the forecasted demand for aircraft and to improve manufacturing processes and efficiency



We are paving the way for the integration of more than 6,000 aerospace design and manufacturing tools



ADAM is scalable by design to more than 100,000 people

"We are on a mission to help integrate the thousands of applications used to build aircraft in order to halve current production lead times!"
