Abstract : The objective of the ACES/IPD program is to develop methodologies for incorporating Integrated Product Development principles into the advanced exhaust nozzle development process to insure smooth transition to engineering development products, decreased development time, reduced life cycle costs, and increased system quality. This report documents the activities as part of Tasks I and II of the ACES/IPD program. A comprehensive survey of Pratt and Whitney advanced nozzle programs was conducted and lessons learned were extracted to serve as a guide for future advanced technology exhaust system development.
