The MMT Program has goals of improving existing manufacturing technology translating new technology into production line processes, and supporting the modernization and expansion of the military hardware production base. Army Regulation AR 700-90, Cl, paragraph 3-6, describes the objectives of the MMT Program as follows The primary objective of the MANTECH program is to develop, on a timely basis, manufacturing processes, techniques, and equipment for use in production of Army materiel. In achieving this objective, strong consideration will be given to efforts that insure producibility, reduce costs or lead times, relieve critical materielmaterials shortages, enhance safety, provide for abatement of pollutants, improve product quality and reliability, and advance the state-of-the-art in manufacturing methods and equipment.
