Project Announcement: Redesign of Vehicle Components for Improved Manufacturability and Maintainability

The U.S. Army is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to leverage advanced commercial Design for Manufacturing/Design for Maintainability principles, tools, processes, and best practices to develop and demonstrate a vehicle component redesign process.  A comprehensive analysis and assessment will be applied to recommend options for streamlining manufacturability and improving maintainability across four combat vehicle configurations.
