Information : Engineering Change Policy
Litton encourages rapid incorporation of engineering changes into the production schedule. This practice differs from other firms that prefer to freeze the design once production starts and to incorporate changes in batches in order to minimize disruptions in production procurement processes. However, Litton feels that the rate of achieving design maturity, reliability growth, and product producibility is directly related to the quantity and rate of the engineering changes.
While this policy may cause some early disruptions, it is consistent with Litton's objective of delivering a quality product with enhanced reliability.
