Abstract : The purpose of the study is to present applications of helicopter mockups to the engineering disciplines involved in the design. The paper consists of a series of examples and suggestions, discussing how mockups can be used for: (1) Integration and coordination between customer/contractor/subcontractor/vendor levels; (2) coordination between engineering design and support groups at the contractor level; (3) improved design and demonstration of human factors and maintainability related functions. Proper application of mockups results in a savings of time, materials, and money during the later states of development. The final outcome is a more cost effective project. (Author)
