Raytheon Delivers Early

Monday, September 10, 2007
Raytheon Company has achieved a milestone with the early delivery of critical vendor furnished information to Northrop Grumman for the U.S. Navy's Zumwalt Class next generation destroyer (DDG 1000). Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS), the U.S. Navy, and shipbuilders Northrop Grumman and General Dynamics worked together to create a concurrent development plan that will align the delivery of engineering components with the phased construction of the ship.

Recognizing the dependencies of system and design interfaces, Raytheon's Zumwalt team modified its engineering development processes and disciplines to enable the incremental exchange of information with the shipbuilder. . A team of specialists from Raytheon, Northrop Grumman and Bath Iron Works worked together, using Raytheon Six Sigma tools and techniques, to develop a solution that translates design data into a format compatible with the shipyards. The group leveraged an existing software tool used in commercial manufacturing to directly translate Raytheon-provided mission systems equipment data into the shipbuilders' computer aided design format. Under the Navy's Detail Design and Integration contract awarded in 2005, Raytheon IDS serves as the prime mission systems equipment integrator for all electronic and combat systems for the Zumwalt-class destroyer program. Working with the Navy and a team of industry leaders, IDS is leading the effort to transform the Navy's ship requirements to reality.
