Active Project

Accelerating aerospace design and manufacturing through digital technologies

ADAM Schematic



ADAM was initiated in 2016 to help meet forecasted demand for aircraft over the next 20 years



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!"

ADAM is accelerating the transition toward digitizing aircraft manufacturing and design processes

The Advanced Digital Design and Manufacturing (ADAM) project seeks to accelerate the Airbus transition towards a future of digital manufacturing and design. The team is uniquely positioned to identify and innovate on emerging technologies with collaborators in Silicon Valley and across the globe.

ADAM provides a platform to drastically reduce product lead times and lower production costs. Through our tool-agnostic framework, we integrate existing and newly developed aerospace software solutions. We provide easy-to-use tools to design and automate processes in aerospace manufacturing.
