Improving Designs and Reducing Qualification Costs using Agile Engineering

Improving Designs and Reducing Qualification Costs using Agile Engineering.Costs of purchasing qualified equipment have continued to escalate in recent years due to environmental requirement changes, increased safety margins, and fewer qualified suppliers.  This business environment has necessitated Ultra Electronics to implement an Agile Engineering (AE) methodology that has reduced typical qualification programs from 24 months to less than 12.  This paper discusses previous qualification program successes and failures, an overview of AE, and how AE improves designs, and lowers costs in a complex qualification program.
