One recent design project set a goal of cutting product weight and cost by 30 percent, providing the impetus for interaction between engineers from manufacturing, purchasing, design, reliability, producibility
, and other functional areas.
Bill Lamb, from the Worldwide Deployment Team; Greg Stottlemyer, from the Manufacturing and Producibility
Team; David Buck and Mary Ann Stasiak, accepting the Third Annual Ronald T.
"The use of these castings will cut part count by a factor of four compared to a welded fabrication," The castings also offer improved producibility
while reducing both weight and cost.
Mil/aero users are conservative and demand evidence of producibility
, testability, functional quality, reliability and several other ilities.
It will allow users to conduct producibility
analyses, especially of complex systems, more thoroughly and quickly than before, according to McNeely.
They are intended to demonstrate that the technology is in place, the design finalized and producibility
proven sufficient to enter into production.
is emphasized in this stage, design engineering and material knowledge are still required.
of these systems has also been limited by the variability of the interconnections (bondwires) and other parasitic elements, the effects of which are more significant for mm-wave systems than for microwave systems.
Extensive, rigorous testing continues to prove maturity of PGK technology in terms of producibility
, reliability, performance and safety, said Dan Olson, Vice President and General Manager for Orbital ATKs Armament Systems division.

early in program life cycle
The EFS in Texon's leases has been and continues to be de-risked by seismic evidence as to the presence of the EFS; by the three Texon vertical wells where 137-143' of good quality EFS reservoir was calculated by Nutech; and by surrounding EFS horizontal wells by other companies confirming the high oil and gas producibility
of the EFS in the area.
