Boeing announced that it has reached a major milestone in the design of the 787 Dreamliner. The team has completed 25 percent of the releases required for the program. This means that one quarter of the pieces of information to build parts and tools for assembly have been completed and released to manufacturing organizations for fabrication or procurement. Releases are the formal documents -- digital models in the case of the 787 program -- that allow purchases to be made, tools to be developed and parts to be built. The 787, scheduled for delivery beginning in 2008, provides passengers with a better flying experience and operators with a more
efficient commercial jetliner. Using 20 percent less fuel per passenger than similarly sized airplanes, the 787 is designed for the environment with lower emissions and quieter takeoffs and landings. Inside the airplane, passengers will find cleaner air, bigger windows, more stowage space and improved lighting. To date, 29 airlines have logged 393 orders and commitments worth more than $55 billion at current list prices since the 787 launch in April 2004, making the Dreamliner the most successful commercial airplane launch in history.



LMS International announced that LMS Test.Lab has been deployed as one of the primary systems for vehicle noise and vibration testing at Toyota's European Technical Center in Zaventem, Belgium. LMS Test.Lab was deployed within the center's NVH development team and supports the team in taking on full-vehicle NVH engineering responsibilities. The new process shifts an increased workload and new competency requirements to the European NVH group, which now must set design targets for the European versions, perform individual prototype tests in less time, and ensure high production quality levels within the European manufacturing plants. To boost
the efficiency of the group in handling these additional tasks, Toyota is broadening its implementation of LMS Test.Lab for noise and vibration testing while reducing the application of older measurement platforms. LMS Test.Lab enables Toyota engineers to perform analysis in real time, with results immediately displayed as tests are being run.
