Producibility Considerations in Production Planning for New Aircraft 710746

This paper describes some aspects of aircraft producibility at The Boeing Company, and discusses the functions of Design Engineering and Manufacturing organizations in achieving a producible airplane. The makeup and function of the product team prior to Corporate go-ahead, as well as their objectives and timing, are defined. Producibility aspects in both preliminary design and production phases of the aircraft program are identified and described. Specifically, producibility considerations during the preliminary design phase in the provisioning of facilities, subcontracting, and scheduling, as well as production-phase design verification, production planning, subcontractor coordination, materials handling, and plant layout and equipment, are discussed. The effects of design changes on producibility are noted. A discussion of motivation as a factor in producibility is included.
