Sample text

Military suppliers are restricted to exporting their technology to government-approved buyers, if at all, whereas commercial airplane producers can and do sell to whoever can find the money to buy. Military airplanes in the United States and Europe do not have competition. Once the contract is let, they are the source for all buyers. There is competition in the commercial market, and even though options are restricted, a commercial airplane can be bought by airlines from a number of sources. In military acquisitions, production tooling, method of manufacture, lot quantities, restricted sales, restricted profit, and single-source procurement disincentivizes the application of automated systems for production.

4 Time Horizon When a production line for an automobile is built, the goal is to get in and get the line running as fast as possible. Time is money. Money does not flow until the line ramps to maximum efficiency. Military production lines are built in blocks over time horizons that extend out ten years or so. This blocked approach to build production lines incentivizes a short-sighted approach to goals. 5 years with a completion bonus when successfully completed on time drives a ten-airplane goal.

The advancement in the field of airframe forensics and technologies to enable the evaluation of catastrophic failures has increased the emphasis on improving hole and countersinking quality. Fastener failure is attributable to the hole and countersink that the hole occupies. Escape defects and even marginally acceptable holes can cause catastrophic failure or reduce an airframe’s predictable life. Many structural failures can be traced to a defective mechanically fastened joint. For example, longitudinal and circumferential fuselage joints are among the most highly loaded parts of an airframe, subject to loading each time the aircraft is pressurized.
