Raytheon suppliers—like you—are key to helping designers understand how their requirements drive product cost, schedule and quality risk—and where improvement opportunities exist.
Raytheon’s Design for Six Sigma™ employs a disciplined set of specialized analysis and communication tools and processes at prescribed stages of the product development lifecycle. Constructive design reviews consider the impact of issues raised through application of Design for Manufacturing (DFM) and Design for Assembly (DFA) analyses. When provided early in the design cycle, the recommendations provided support our drive to offer best value solutions to customers for affordability, quality and delivery.
DFM reviews allow clear communication of design cost drivers as they relate to your manufacturing capabilities; they allow you to share concerns, propose exceptions and highlight opportunities for cost and risk reduction.
DFA reviews allow you to communicate opportunities your team has identified to reduce assembly complexity, cost and producibility risk.
- Designers have system performance expertise—how the design affects performance
- Suppliers have fabrication, assembly and test expertise—how the design affects producibility and drives cost
- Both inputs are required to optimize cost and minimize risk
