Achievements
2020: 
degree of automation > 90 % for SOA processes; automation by common industrial robots with enhanced accuracy; geometrically flexible adaptive jigs; joining by molecular material connection is permitted in 20% of primary structure due to enhanced NDT methods
2035: 
degree of automation > 98% for SOA processes; direct man-machine (robot) interaction permitted and SOA; mobile, self-guiding, self-referring, lightweight robotic modules; manufacturing or assembly cells support up to three parallel processes; aircraft type independent manufacturing & assembly lines; joining by molecular material connection is permitted in 80% of primary structure due to sophisticated NDT methods
2050: 
degree of automation > 99,9% for SOA processes; manufacturing or assembly cells support up to five parallel processes; joining by molecular material connection is permitted in 100% of primary structure due to highly reliable NDT methods
Key Performance Indicator: 
manufacturing and assembly: process time reduction 80%, cost reduction 70%; products produced in EU are competitive with those produced in low labour cost countries
