Systems Engineering and Design

The Team has sophisticated design and modeling software and systems in place to evaluate all stages of SSC design, manufacturing and performance, from development to life-cycle support. The process starts with a complete understanding of customer needs and requirements. Engineers of every discipline break down the requirements of major systems into subsystems, and then further to their smallest components, designing functionality and reliability into each individual unit. Through this baseline approach, key issues of risk are identified and addressed in the design stage, not in the field. This Systems Engineering approach reduces production time and maximizes production efficiency, improves craft performance and reliability, and results in lower total ownership costs. It ensures seamless integration as component systems interface.
