Digitalising aerospace manufacturing with low-code

Founded in 1939, Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. is the only Swiss company that develops, produces, and sells aircraft to customers worldwide. With over 2,300 employees at its headquarters, Pilatus is one of Switzerland's largest employers. Pilatus trains around 130 apprentices in 14 different professions.

Balancing safety & productivity


For an aircraft to take off and land safely, thousands of components are needed that must meet the highest safety and documentation standards.

Although the level of automation in modern aircraft manufacturing has increased significantly in recent years, certain production steps still involve a lot of manual labor and paperwork, which reduces productivity and increases the risk of human error.

Pilatus and Consulteer have entered into a long-term partnership to fully exploit the potential of digitalization along the entire supply chain.

Aircraft production requires a wide range of work orders and processes, from producing individual components to customer-specific painting. The Digital Workorder plays a crucial role here, receiving work orders from the Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP) and enriching them with information from the design system, such as drawings and 3D models.

The Digital Workorder enables seamless digital work order and shop floor management. All assemblies, components and materials are linked in an ecosystem and their progress can be tracked at any time from order release to delivery.

Going paperless in production

The Less Paper Platform increases productivity and safety in production, reduces paper consumption and minimizes human error. Each assembly step is carefully validated and goes through quality checks before final acceptance.

With flexible domain-based services and a microservice architecture, it optimizes overall production execution and enables easy integration of additional functions. The platform also ensures reliable recording of assembly and testing processes to document and guarantee compliance with safety standards.

Enabling seamless workflows

Increasing efficiency while maintaining high safety standards is a top priority for aerospace companies. Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. and Consulteer have proven that no compromise between safety, quality, and productivity is required.

The key benefits of the Less Paper Platform and the Digital Workorder are:

  • Reduction of human errors through automated processes and quality gates

  • Automated manufacturing records

  • Improved traceability of assemblies & components

  • Reduced paper consumption and time

  • Increased labor productivity through more automation and less manual intervention

Consulteer is your partner on the way to smart manufacturing. With low-code, we increase your productivity & reduce your costs.
