The System Engineering and Production Directorate SEPD. Research Development and Engineering Center RDEC, U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command AMCOM has an engineering support contract with the University of Alabama in Huntsville. The scope of the contract provides for activities in system engineering and manufacturing technology. The Industrial Operations Division IOD, SEPD, RDEC, AMCOM has the mission and function of providing technical management and engineering analysis as they relate to design changes for AMCOM supported weapon systems. This management and analysis ensures that design changes are incorporated only after a systematic technical evaluation and review of the total cost of the change is conducted. The systems engineering analysis evaluates the long-term life cycle consequences of the change, to include impacts on the menufacturability, maintainability and supportability of the overall weapon system.
