Abstract:

The Manufacturing CostDesign Guide MCDG enables airframe and electronic designers to achieve lowest cost by conducting trade-offs between manufacturing cost and other design factors. When fully developed, the MCDG will, for example, permit airframe designers, at all levels of the design process, to quickly perform cost-trade comparisons of manufacturing processes and structural performancecost trade-offs on airframe components and subassemblies in metallic and composite materials.
