Results from literature searches, mail surveys, and the observation of production processes in industry established the status of fluidics as an important control technology. By investigating several missile hardware production lines, 12 candidate systems using fluidic controls are evaluated. The evaluation concerns the predicted performance over the present operation, the consideration of advantages and benefits, and the expansion of the system into commonality areas. Author
