New product design, and the development effort accompanying it, requires a high degree of coordination between manufacturing and design engineering. Manufacturing engineering, with the responsibility for determining how a product will be fabricated, is in a position to exert positive influence on product design as well as the areas of capital investment, labor distribution, and profitability. The activities of the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering group at Sikorsky Aircraft are herein described.
Both design and manufacturing problems are reviewed with emphasis on specific contributions made by Manufacturing Engineering to their solution. Advanced manufacturing techniques are described and the final designs incorporating these techniques are discussed.
