Design of experiments as a means of lean value delivery to the flight test enterprise
Keywords and Phrases
"Modern flight test tends to be a complex, expensive undertaking so any increases in efficiency would result in considerable savings. Lean thinking is an effective method to identify value and eliminate waste and is particularly effective when applied to the entire flight test enterprise. Design of experiments is a statistical methodology which results in highly efficient flight test where only the samples needed are collected and analyzed. The application of design of experiments to flight test's value stream can result in a significant increase in lean value to the stakeholders and a reduction of waste...A conceptual model is developed which shows how the design of experiments aligns the flight test process along the lean value delivery stream and identifies the stakeholders at each step. Finally, the conceptual model is applied to a flight test case study, and illustrates how flight test resources were preserved, waste was eliminated, and valuable data and analyses were delivered to the customer"--Abstract, leaf iii.
