Technical Product Definition Information. In this activity we created a preliminary technical data package (TDP) at a Level 3 Production per MIL-STD-31000 definition. A TDP is a technical description of an item adequate for supporting an acquisition strategy, development, manufacturing development, production, engineering, and logistics throughout the item's lifecycle. The technical description defines the required design configuration and procedures required to ensure adequacy of item performance. A TDP is comprised of a variety of data that will define the item. A level 3 production TDP consists of those elements necessary to provide the design engineering, manufacturing, inspection, packaging and quality management system provisions necessary to enable the procurement or manufacture of an item. The product shall be defined to the extent necessary for a competent manufacturer to produce an item, which duplicates the physical, interface, and functional characteristics of the original product, without additional design engineering effort or recourse to the current design activity. Production data shall reflect the approved, tested, and accepted configuration of the defined delivered item.Brighton Cromwell Technical Center (BCTC) engineering drawings developed to ASME Y14.100 and ISO 9001:2015 QMS for the Link & Hook sub-assembly and Bomb Shackle assembly and have been created from the original USAF NSN drawings (i.e. drawings created in 1933), plus reverse engineering for items without OEM drawings.In this Phase 2 we will create all tooling and manufacturing requirements to make samples for testing at Robins Air Force base. We will be working with Jean Brou J NH-03 USAF AFMC AFLCMC/EBW and Shayne Quota S GS-11 USAF AFMC AFLCMC/EBW, Armament Sustainment Division to perform our testing and validation.We will coordinateand implement our manufacturing processes and control documents with the manufacturing team to develop 6 samplesfor testing. Once the samples are made,we will perform an AS9102B First Article Inspection on all parts. We will then bring the samples to Robins Air Force Base for testing. The testing will be coordinated with the Robins Air Force Team via our mutually agreed upon DVP&R testing protocol. After testing,a complete report will be developed for submission with our Source Approval Request. The SAR(Source Approval Request)will then be submitted to qualify Brighton Cromwell LLC as an alternative source of supply for this product.
