Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-052
Budget: 06/23/09 - 11/03/10

This team of a small software developer, two large Navy shipbuilders, and two experts in ship STEP and PLCS DEX technology propose to develop processes and interface tools to exchange non-geometric product model data between shipbuilders and the Navy. Specifically, in the Phase I program we will 1. Determine the product structure and material pr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-029
Budget: 08/13/08 - 08/06/10

Defense acquisition programs have difficulty estimating manufacturing costs during development. This is particularly acute for MDA because their systems use leading edge technologies that push the envelope for performance reasons. In addition, MDA is developing new technologies for spiral upgrades, so the total lifecycle cost for the portfol...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-022
Budget: 03/04/08 - 09/04/08

Army Science and Technology (S&T) managers need a decision aide to identify and manage manufacturing affordability risks to lower costs and increase the transition success rate to tactical missile systems. This program leverages an existing web-based, secure, and modular costing framework that is being developed for strategic missile programs...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-029
Budget: 02/28/07 - 08/28/07

Defense acquisition programs suffer from cost escalation due to the inability to accurately estimate costs up front and to predict the cost impact of changes. In this program, we will work with several leading MDA manufacturers to define the requirements for a costing framework integrated with their engineering and business software infrastruc...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-111
Budget: 11/30/06 - 11/30/08

Defense acquisition programs are plagued by cost over-runs and extended development times. The root cause of many of these problems is a lack of adequate tools to evaluate the impact on cost and schedule of different choices of characteristics, designs, materials, manufacturing processes and suppliers. In this proposal, we are extending an e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project advances knowledge and understanding by developing a novel target costing system for small companies to collaborate in commercial virtual manufacturing enterprises. Partners in this project include two leading virtual manufacturing enterprises. The original concepts introduced inclu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-111
Budget: 01/31/05 - 06/30/05

Defense manufacturing has evolved into the prime-contractor/system-integrator model where engineering designs and manufacturing process developments are distributed across several smaller suppliers. In this environment it is especially difficult to assess or improve the cost of new manufacturing processes and product designs because the inform...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Ismi

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST041-004
Budget: 12/06/04 - 02/06/06

The proposed program will extend the CostVision technology, cost, and capacity software platform to support the needs of low-volume microfabrication. In particular, we will 1) build and demonstrate the feasibility of semiconductor technology-process models for trade-off analysis, 2) develop cost and capacity allocation methods that are flexib...
