Abstract
"Aetion will leverage proprietary multi-criterial decision-making technology, SFVM, that can be used for generating and evaluating a very large number and range of manufacturing alternatives in parallel, efficiently finding the best options from among them,and presenting the results to the user so that they can understand how the design of prototypes impacts their manufacturability, and to navigate the tradeoffs and choose the best.During phase I we will identify a simple prototype-transitioning problem, and work on models and our SFVM technology to use them to solve that problem. This is by way of a demonstration that applied SFVM should be the foundation of a valuable newcapability for the MDA.This simple problem will be chosen with the larger picture in mind: that the veracity and scope of the models can be expanded, and SFVM further customized, in expectation of delivery of a uniquely potent advanced prototype at the end of phase II. The SFVMtechnology is broadly applicable because multi-criterial optimization problems are ubiquitous. So, development that benefits one particular application will tend to also expand our capabilities for others. As well as there being multiple customers with aneed for advanced solutions in prototyping and manufacturing, SFVM shows exceptional promise for effects-based comprehensive military planning, infrastructure vulnerability and hardening analysis, drug design, bioinformatics, microarray techniq
