Producibility, an input to aircraft design techniques, reduces production cost and increases product profitability. Concurrently with all stages of design, a joint engineering and manufacturing team continuously analyzes fabrication methods and materials to minimize costs and optimize product performance. This analysis may strongly influence aircraft design. During design of the F-14 fighter aircraft, for example, producibility analysis permitted significant savings in weight, time, and money
