Case Study: There’s No Such Thing As Clean Enough in Aerospace
A leading defense aerospace engineering company turned to YULEYS® to protect their aircraft from foreign object damage (FOD). Sophisticated aircraft must be kept in pristine condition, especially the wings, so a thin film or “skin” is applied to the surface to prevent scratches or other damage. However, aerospace workers sometimes need to walk on the aircraft to perform their tasks. This skin can be easily damaged by footwear — if one scratch cuts through and damages the wing surface, the entire skin must be reapplied at great cost.
A worker at the company, who was wearing disposable booties over work boots, was walking on the wing of an aircraft when a stone stuck in the tread cut through the bootie and skin, and into the actual wing surface. The cost of repairs, including down time, was reason enough for the company to reconsider the use of disposable booties. The manufacturer worked directly with the company to implement a YULEYS Clean Step Program on a single aircraft assembly. This proved to be successful, and was soon expanded into other assembly areas.
Following these trials, the company approved the site switch to YULEYS as the only shoe cover their workers could use. This company trusts YULEYS so much that they are now experimenting with removing the protective skin altogether. This could translate into a significant reduction in the total assembly time for each aircraft. They now hope to speed up the total manufacturing turnaround time for an aircraft, which would deliver significant cost savings.
