Every major program has significant touch labor opportunities to leverage and part of the producibility
plan needs to be a formal system for review and application of lessons learned.
and manufacturability are the banes of infant technologies.
The NLOS-LS program implemented a robust producibility
engineering and planning statement of work to promote producibility
and manufacturing planning in the development program, and the program required that producibility
be considered in all design decisions.
Requirements were grouped into categories and assigned to the customers: cost, producibility
, schedule, system level; and the monitoring areas of environment, structure, machinery, and personnel.
To achieve this milestone, Lockheed Martin completed the Critical Design Review (CDR) of the satellite and each subsystem, demonstrating the producibility
of the satellite design and compliance of the design with technical specifications.
A design process that includes producibility
as a major requirement.
Under the terms of the contract, the Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) phase of the program runs 36 months, focusing on system performance, warhead qualification and producibility
The purpose of the review was to assess the maturity of the manufacturing processes and materials associated with the design, identify producibility
issues early, and assess the program's readiness to transition into SDD.
Three examples of successful STANDARD Missile VECPs tell the story: the Plate 3A AEGIS Transceiver Producibility
VECP; the Warhead Compatible Telemeter (WCT) Transmitter (AN/DKT-71A); and the Autopilot Battery Section Inertial Instrument Unit and Electronics Assemblies (APBS IIU and APBS EA).
How can I use design for producibility
to help meet cost as an Independent variable goals?
The meeting noted that the main advantages of natural gas as a fuel were its environmental friendliness, economic efficiency, reliability and producibility
Their tools and services expose drivers of potential downstream problems, provide direction for designing out high-cost drivers, generate standardized metrics for early trade-off analyses, and manage the details of producibility
through the development lifecycle.
