Abstract

In some cases, manufacturers may have buy-to-fly ratios of less than 20%, prompting questions as to whether the most efficient manufacturing process is being selected in the design stage. There is a lack of objective pre-selection techniques and a need for a quick, broad and comparative study using key variables to assess potential processes. Proposed is a flexible down-select methodology that addresses this requirement while offering traceability and justification to the decision-maker. The need within the aerospace sector has been validated, while identifying scope for future development.
