Co-Design to Target integrates all engineering works-in-process with contracts management, program controls, systems & design engineering, configuration & data management and subcontracts administration. Avoid potential contract penalties by meeting product delivery dates. Reduced program complexity in product development significantly lowers non-recurring costs (shortened design time) and recurring costs (less parts + simplified manufacturing). Keep programs on-specification, on-budget and on-schedule to have tighter execution control. Achieve lean development, faster product definition to ensure smooth manufacturing ramp-up and improve production rates.
