DIRECTOR DEFENSE RESEARCH AND ENGINEERING WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The DOD Manufacturing Technology ManTech Program anticipates and closes gaps in manufacturing capabilities for affordable, timely, and low-risk development, production and sustainment of defense systems. An important focus of ManTech is on the technologies, processes, and enabling manufacturing capabilities that reduce the acquisition and sustainment cost of weapon systems and provide direct benefit to the Warfighter. Measures of effectiveness include Return-On-Investment, improved mission capability, improved readiness, and reduced missionWarfighter workload. Timely transition of the technology consistent with acquisition and operational requirements is essential. The ManTech Program 1 Provides the crucial link between technology invention and industrial applications 2 Matures and validates emerging manufacturing technologies to support low risk implementation in industry and DOD facilities to include depots and shipyards 3 Addresses production issues from system development through transition to production and sustainment 4 Addresses production issues early by providing timely solutions 5 Reduces risk and positively impacts system affordability by providing solutions to manufacturing problems before they occur.
