Abstract:
The measure of success in any organization is directly associated with its ability to provide quality communication.Engineering organizations are no exception. Today's innovative and technically competent engineer has virtually unlimited opportunity to develop ideas and designs into quality products in minimum time through the powerful communication tool of concurrent engineering.The Integrated Wiring System (IWS) was Lockheed's first computer integrated engineering, manufacturing, and support system. This computer-based system features a single-source data base that is used for all design, documentation, fabrication, and testing of aircraft wiring. This single-source data base ensures that items are manufactured to match all engineering specifications.This application of concurrent engineering minimizes the transmittal of errors; reduces the time required for design, planning and mockup; ensures a coordinated effort among the affected divisions; and, provides high quality documentation.This is an example of quality communication that can be applied to virtually any engineering endeavor.
