Paper Abstract

A plan to manufacture Z-Technology focal planes was validated by an approach that extends learning curve data from a module pilot line to intercept the planned rate-over-time of a modeled production factory. The pilot factory data are based on 87 Lot IV submodules produced at Grumman's Irvine, California facility. Detailed capital, material and labor costs were tracked for each operation in the manufacturing process. These data were analyzed with equipment manufacturer's data and program requirements to compute the cost of manufacturing for the model factory. The model can be tailored to fit various scenarios of focal plane configuration, resource availability and schedule.
