Identifying & Eliminating Cost Drivers Early in Product Design: Four A&D Success Stories
Aerospace & Defense manufacturers are experiencing considerable pressure to contain escalating product costs and minimize late stage design churn that slows delivery to market for new product platforms. The most progressive manufacturers are leveraging advanced software technology in the earliest stages of product design to uncover cost drivers and attack product design, sourcing and manufacturing inefficiencies at the point of origin. In this presentation, Scott Carlyle, an aerospace technology executive with 25+ years of experience, will describe how industry giants such as Honeywell Aerospace, Boeing, Spirit Aerosystems and others are responding to these market pressures by leveraging product cost management software technology to uncover potential cost and manufacturing related issues before they cascade downstream and create staggering cost overruns. Success stories will reveal savings of 10+% on new product initiatives (NPI), accelerations of time to market by weeks and even months, plus significant reductions and even elimination of traditional value engineering activities that waste valuable time and money.
