Accelerating the transition of recent applied sciences into platforms and items can be the most important to the dept of Defenses improvement of a lighter, extra versatile scuffling with strength. present lengthy transition times-ten years or extra is now typical-are attributed to the complexity of the method. to aid meet those demanding situations, the dep. of safeguard requested the nationwide learn Council to ascertain classes realized from fast know-how purposes by means of built-in layout and production teams. This document offers the result of that research, which used to be in line with a workshop held to discover those winning circumstances. 3 key components emerged: making a tradition for innovation and swift know-how transition; methodologies and techniques; and permitting instruments and databases.

Example text

Recommendation 1. The Department of Defense (DoD) should endeavor to create a culture that fosters innovation, rapid development, and the accelerated deployment of materials technologies. Success stories from commercial, sports, and defense industries suggest that the characteristics of such a culture include the following: • Acceptance of risk, anticipation of failure, and plans for alternatives; • A flexible environment with the ability to accommodate change during the development process; • Open communication in all directions without regard to hierarchy; • A widespread sense of responsibility and commitment to success that exceed defined functional roles; • Valuing of innovation over short-term economic efficiency; and • A passionate focus on the end-user's needs.

In fact, the Department of Defense (DoD) practice of punishing those who cause failure was cited by speakers from military and industrial organizations alike. They described the severe penalties faced by DoD program managers who introduce a technology that fails, even in preliminary tests. This attitude within the DoD that so heavily penalizes failure and does not provide appropriate rewards for success breeds a culture that is, by nature, averse to transitioning new technology very rapidly, or at all.

SOURCE: R. , November 24, 2003. to obtain accurate estimates of material properties and an understanding of microstructure evolution, as well as realistic estimates of the behavior of realistic samples, with typical defects and long-term behavior in harsh environments. 4c characterizes the future development process as being fully integrated, with design practice, materials development, and manufacturing all integrated in a seamless computational environment, leading to production scale-up. Modeling and simulation were highlighted by several workshop participants as making a positive contribution to accelerating materials development.
