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. This volume provides an overview of course contents, press releases, executive summary brochure, press accounts, presentations and briefings given on the MCDG to accelerate technology transfer of the MCDG program results. A discussion of the organization of the coalition or team is also included as this was a factor in achieving rapid utilization of the MCDG by design staff of the aerospace member companies.
