But what might appear to be a dream is proving to be a nightmare—asking customers to wait a decade for the delivery of their product. Management across the industry is wrestling with how to reduce build times once again.

How do jumbo-jet designers develop resilient materials for modern airframes, while still bringing in their projects on time and on budget? Before they prototype a new material, they depend heavily on computer simulations to indicate how it will perform—and scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are making those simulations more effective.
