Abstract:

A number of methods and some software tools are examined that are proven to reduce the amount of time spent on email by an average of two hours per week per person, while at the same time increasing communications effectiveness. Improvement to Arnold Engineering Development Center AEDC Email communications would provide a five percent increase in available Arnold Engineering Development Center AEDC engineering labor hours. If used for additional, up front, life cycle systems engineering for improved requirements definition and analysis of alternatives, the cost avoidance engineering hours could be used to significantly reduce the cost of performing ground testing. More engineering hours at no additional cost could be used to design and implement enterprise shared functionalityservices vs. organization or location specific non shared solutions, leading to lower life cycle cost, more flexible, and a smaller amount and variety of hardware, software, and processes.
