Abstract : The report highlights accomplishments, future plans, problems experienced and anticipated, and plans for resolution of problems, if any. The report provides a means of measuring Sylvania's adherences to and compliance with the Sylvania Value Engineering Design Plans, as submitted to ECOM. The V.E. program effort applied by EMI-Cossor, subcontractor for the ADF Set AN/ARN-89, was monitored and evaluated during August. Sylvania V.E. Quarterly Report No. 5 was approved by ECOM and distributed per the ECOM distribution list. Inherent V.E. changes to date have resulted in estimated cost avoidances of $6,034,603. Ten (10) Sylvanians are enrolled under company sponsorship in the Creative Value Engineering Course offered by the State University of New York at Buffalo. Team effort is being applied to a LOHAP work project as part of their curriculum. The cost model was updated during this period. Commodity prices were re-evaluated. Value analysis effort with suppliers was accelerated, particularly in the area of mechanical items. (Author)
