A Holistic Approach to Manufacturing System Design in the Defense Aerospace Industry
Author(s)Vaughn, Amanda; Shields, J. Thomas
Manufacturing has evolved to become a critical element of the competitive skill set of defense aerospace firms. Given the changes in the acquisition environment and culture; traditional “thrown over the wall” means of developing and manufacturing products are insufficient. Also, manufacturing systems are complex systems that need to be carefully designed in a holistic manner and there are shortcomings with available tools and methods to assist in the design of these systems. This paper outlines the generation and validation of a framework to guide this manufacturing system design process.

Revisiting the Question: Are Systems of Systems just (traditional) Systems or are they a new class of Systems? Mekdeci, Brian; Shah, Nirav; Ross, Adam Michael; Rhodes, Donna H.; Hastings, Daniel E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2014-03)This paper revisits a question asked and debated widely over the past decade: are Systems of Systems (SoS) just traditional systems or are they a new class of systems? Many have argued that SoS are a new class of systems, ...
