The objective of the program was to design, develop, fabricate and debug three major prototype M549 Fuze assembly machines that will be capable, when included in a balanced production line, of producing 250,000 fuzes per month on a 1-8-5 shift basis. This contract did not require that the line be balanced for a true 1-8-5 shift basis at this time. The prototype equipment was acquired and installed, with limited acceptance and demonstration quantities processed to verify machine acceptability.
