Abstract:

This paper examines the aerospace industry capacity for surge production of tactical fighter aircraft in response to a national emergency. It provides a conceptual overview of the aerospace industry, some general industrial production factors, and a discussion of the 1966-67 F-4 production surge. A vertical slice study of each of the four aircraft under consideration is then provided, followed by a horizontal slice study which addresses major critical production factors and ongoing corrective actions.
