Lean Aerospace Engineering
Author(s)Murman, Earll M.
A framework for Lean Engineering is presented, based upon observational findings from a decade of research in the aerospace domain, published works on Toyota and Southwest Airlines, and practitioner input. The framework is illustrated with examples drawn from aircraft and other aerospace applications. Lean Engineering is not totally new to aerospace, and it continues to evolve. Future challenges are briefly summarized.
