Mahindra Aerospace today inaugurated its state-of-the-art 25,000 sq. m aerostructures manufacturing facility at the Narsapura Industrial Estate near Bangalore. This service-oriented facility has the ability to accurately craft large, complex sheet metal parts using CNC routing, stretch-forming, bladder press, heat treatment and other specialized equipment.

The facility also features 5-axis CNC machining, a fully-automated surface treatment line, priming and painting capabilities for parts and assemblies and nearly 10,000 sq. m. of space for the manufacture of major airframe assemblies and sub-assemblies. With its comprehensive mix of capabilities, the facility is intended to assist OEMs and Tier 1's mitigate concerns on single-point responsibility for cost, schedule and quality of deliverables.

Mahindra Aerospace today also announced the signing of a technology partnership with the Aernnova Group, a leading aerostructures Tier 1 supplier that is headquartered in Spain with facilities around the globe. Aernnova specializes in the design and manufacture of major airframe assemblies and is a key supplier on numerous civil and military aircraft programs for several global aircraft OEMs. This technology partnership is Aernnova's first with an Indian aerostructures manufacturer. Aernnova and Mahindra Aerospace will work together to develop capabilities and meet market demand for mutual benefit.

The new plant has been established at a total cost of approximately Rs. 150 crore and has the capacity to deliver about Rs. 250 crores in revenue per annum when operating at peak capacity. Initially the company plans to commence manufacturing activities with smaller parts and sub-assemblies, and then ramp up to larger, more complex assemblies.

It is currently in the process of gaining industry-standard AS9100C and NADCAP accreditations, alongside stringent quality approvals for individual customers and programs. It is also investing in skilled aerospace sheet metal, special processing and assembly workers, and will generate significant employment as operations ramp up over the next 5 to 7 years.

Commenting on this initiative, Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group, said "Our aerospace vision is to build a robust business encompassing both aircraft and component manufacture for Indian and global markets. With its unique capabilities and skilled teams, this new facility will accelerate Mahindra Aerospace on its mission to strengthen India's place in the global Aerostructures supply chain."

According to Hemant Luthra, President -Mahindra Systech, "This facility demonstrates our commitment to aerospace and to strengthening our domestic eco-system. We will deliver complex, build-to-print parts and assemblies out of this facility and offer cost-competitive, world-class aerospace manufacturing capabilities. The plant will be a service provider that can service multiple OEMs and their supply chains. With our Group's strength in aerospace engineering, we would like to progress from 'build-to-print' towards 'design-to-delivery' offerings in the future."

According to InakiGandasegui, Chairman, Aernnova Group,""This facility has been designed to be world-class, and is an excellent addition to India's supply chain. We believe it will play a strong role in the regional eco-system and also help address capacity challenges for the OEMs as they ramp up production rates. We are proud to be associated with the Mahindra Group and look forward to a vibrant, mutually beneficial partnership."

It was just two years ago, in March of 2013, that the PaaS company dotCloud decided to open-source its container technology under the name "Docker." Docker quickly became a hit, with Docker Meetups spawning weekly worldwide and downloads occurring at record-breaking rates. The dotCloud team quickly changed direction, renamed the company "Docker," and brought in new CEO Ben Golub in July 2013 to lead the new business model. At the time, Docker was about a twenty-person company. Fast-forward to to...
What’s hot in today’s cloud computing world? Containers are fast becoming a viable alternative to virtualization for the right use cases.

In basic terms, containers are application-centric environments that help isolate and run workloads far more efficiently than the traditional hypervisor technology found in commodity cloud Infrastructure as a Service. Modern operating systems (Linux, Windows, e...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest.

After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...

I woke up this morning to the devastating news about the earthquake in Nepal. Sitting here in California that destruction is literally on the other side of the world but my mind immediately went to thinking about my good friend Jeremy Geelan. See Jeremy and his family have been living in Kathmandu for a while now. His wife, in fact, is the Danish Ambassador to Nepal!
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immed...

There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
