11. Program Design Manual
A Program Design Manual, developed and introduced to the design team before
the start of design, addresses such issues as producibility
guidelines/standards, parts selection and derating, Diminishing Manufacturing
Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS), pedigree, testability guidelines, and
other design requirements for compliance. The manual should be approved by
management, and should be part of each designer’s required documentation.
Compliance with the manual is verified and documented at each design
