An Approach to Programme Management through Assumptions Control 2006-01-1220

This paper illustrates how vehicle programmes can be driven from a unified, change controlled set of assumptions held in a structure which is common across resource planning, cycle planning, programme definition, Bill of Materials, finance and weight activities.
The benefits of this approach include a consistent view of the product across functions such as engineering, purchasing, manufacturing and finance, the ability to identify issues arising from corporate and programme goal conflict, and consistent reporting of programme information from a single-point authored source throughout a product's life cycle. It also enables a cross-programme view for planning shared usage of system families and variants.
