Abstract
Production management concepts are needed to promote improved factory management and response to changing conditions. Goals of this effort are to reduce human effort through knowledge sharing of stakeholders and generate a responsive recognition of supplier's contributions to end products. Improvements include reduction in time required to fabricate subsystems, less cost to fabricate end-items, and a capability to become responsive to customer demand. Raytheon needs manufacturing practices for producing high quality products in an efficient, economical, and time responsive manner. Decision Sciences Inc. will team with Raytheon for development of methodology to perform near real-time prediction of production yields for AMRAAM. New processes will integrate critical component information from key suppliers and mine information from legacy systems, both prime contractor and supplier's as available. Information is critical for performing predictive analysis. A Vertical Program Management (i.e., integration of key knowledge sharing throughout the supply chain) concept of total stakeholder involvement for a single product output will be melded with existing Raytheon concepts for manufacturing planning to provide a lean manufacturing approach that results in improved production efficiency and predictability. Results are expected to include increased prime integrator / supply chain partnering and bring product awareness to the entire value stream.
