Trusted Data Solutions proposes to demonstrate the benefits of establishing a manufacturing readiness system to create an intelligent, electronic factory for use throughout a product's lifecycle. In a manufacturing readiness system, relationships among products, processes, and resources are associative; "what-if" scenarios can be quickly played out within the electronic factory to determine impact on readiness level and ultimately production costs. The savings of integrating a manufacturing readiness system show multiple benefits including: reduction in overall production costs, increase in production throughput, and a reduction in overall time-to-market. Combining an open architecture environment, database systems that establish relationships among products, processes, and resources, and tools such as CAD, CAM, or CAP, the manufacturing readiness system is created. This readiness system is then taken as the foundational infrastructure and integrated with the correct tools to establish an electronic factory. The electronic factory is then able to conduct scenarios based upon single data sources such as: capacity studies, resource optimization, logistics routing, and cost reductions. Trusted Data Solutions' overall objective under Phase I is to identify the most opportunistic implementation site for a pilot project of the manufacturing readiness system.
