Abstract:

Single process initiative can be summarized as follows The Single Process Initiative is significant in that it modifies existing contracts as a block to address a very real problem in our contractors facilities - the requirements that impose different, even inferior, processes to manufacture similar product lines I see great potential for improvement of our implementation efforts through expanded use of management councils to reduce redundant audits and reviews We have enough implementation experience under our belts to know the a 120 day processing standard is achievable if concept papers contain sufficient detail when component team leaders understand their workload and devote adequate attention and when ACOs start the mod process early and secure the active involvement of the user and PCO We must find a way to extend block changes to significant subcontracts - and I am confident we can do this without the government dictating the relationship between prime contractors and their subcontractors and finally, I am seeing evidence that this SPI effort is now taking root within a wide spectrum of our supplier base.
