Context & challenge

The Airbus A350 XWB (eXtra wide body) is lighter and more cost-efficient, using composite materials on its structural elements for the first time in Airbus history. For such a breakthrough, Expleo understandably wanted to be involved.

Fast facts

  • Cost reduction of around 25% over the last three years
  • On-Time Delivery (OTD) performance exceeding 98%

Client benefits

Our teams were commissioned to carry out all installation studies for electrical harnesses on the entire A350 fuselage, on both the French and German sections. We also provided engineering support, via Airbus, to the manufacturer of the harnesses.

In all, 80 Expleo engineers and technicians teamed across France, Germany and Romania to carry out electrical harness design activities, configuration management of electrical schematics and project management of all activities.

Expleo also developed automation and optimisation tools to meet cost and schedule constraints. As the project ran on, we expanded our technical scope to take responsibility for electrical schematic activities and equipment design.
