. I searched for the word "Software" and did not find it.
I would think they have used some software to develop the LCA. And, would *expect* to build a more robust one for the AMCA. One which will actually simulate, at the very least, real estate issues at a very granular level. On top of that CFD, etc would be just much greater (which I think they have). VA would be absolutely crucial for an AMCA project.
Its implied Saar, in LCA project, ADA/NAL built a lot of SW base from literally ZERO capability, CAD, CAF, FEM all. One of their Composite lay up SW is even being used by like of Airbus. Now they have free access to all commercial tools. But that has made them overly relying on them. Yes they still lack the depth to in-house tools which only come with a lot of RnD and experimentation. That will come only over time. But even now its impressive I would say.
Yeah. Silly on my part. Apologies.
