IndustryWeek recently interviewed Danny Di Perna, vice president, Module Centers & Operations, to find out how Pratt & Whitney is investing in manufacturing technologies to ensure quality products and repeatable processes while at the same time expanding its partnership with global suppliers.

"Our goal is to get first time quality right out of the gate," Di Perna said. "To get there, we put technology at the forefront of our investments, but first we put new technologies through a technology maturation process so we can develop them and get them ready for prime time."

The discussion was framed around the ways that Pratt & Whitney's manufacturing processes are improving and evolving through the adoption of smart tools and machines. These innovative manufacturing processes reduce lead time, variation and risk, and maximize producibility to ensure a consistent product that conforms to design specification and performs to our customers' requirements.

IndustryWeek brings together manufacturing business leaders to explore the issues, strategies, trends and technologies that help them build more competitive and profitable companies. IW is a product of the Penton Manufacturing & Supply Chain Group; a resource for relevant news and measurable results.
