Abstract:

This is the Quarterly Technical Report for the DARPA DICE manufacturing Optimization, The goal of the Manufacturing Optimization MO system is to facilitate a two tiered team approach to the productprocess development cycle where the product design is analyzed by multiple manufacturing engineers, and the productprocess changes are traded concurrently in the product and process domains. The system will support Design for Manufacturing and Assembly DFMA with a set of tools to model the manufacturing processes, and manage tradeoffs across multiple processes. The subject of this report is the technical work accomplished during the third quarter of the contract. This report describes the initial MO Prototype, as well as, the evaluations of the Project Coordination BoardCommunications Manager PCBCM and Requirements Manager RM. Raytheon developed a prototype which demonstrated the first pass at MO functionality. The prototype system was developed to provide a means of assessing the viability and effectiveness of the capabilities defined in the MO functional requirements.
