LAWIB (Lean Assembly Wingbox) is an assembled structure with low level of part integration.The build philosophy of LAWiB is related to the design architecture which permits the use of best-fit positioning of ribs. This build philosophy reduces the need

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

Build philosophy has been physically demonstrated on LAWiB demonstrator.
