Abstract : The prime objective of the producibility study was to reduce the production cost of the BLU-40/B R and D fuze and shorten the lead time for a high-production facility. The program was comprised of: (1) a producibility study and evaluation of preliminary design concepts by contractor testing; (2) fabrication of development test units and evaluation of their compliance with the requirements as set forth in specification ATW 67-96; (3) production of fuzes, vanes and smoke-generating bomb assemblies for flight testing at Eglin AFB; (4) a man-hour Value Engineering Study commencing upon completion of development tests; (5) production of fuzes and vanes for government use (to be specified); and (6) completion of Form 1423 data items.
