Fanuc GE's Manual Guide i shop floor programming software features a Workpiece Setting Error Measurement function that enhances efficiency and quality when milling parallelopipeds. When the workpieces are placed on the rotary table, they are often slightly displaced from the ideal position, typically requiring positioning measurements and complex calculations for inclusion in a revised part program. If the function is implemented in the machine tool, the operator can program this cycle on the shop floor. The software automatically computes the differences between the original workpiece coordinate system and the tilted workpiece coordinate system. The results are presented to the operator via a table on the screen, with a reference number for each error. The operator can then simply call these reference numbers into the part program and the workpiece is automatically adjusted.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.
One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
