Abstract : This report contains the accomplishments and the benefits analysis of the PDES Application Protocol Suite for Composites (PAS-C) program. The overall objective of the PAS-C program was to reduce the cost of aircraft composite structural components through the use of concurrent engineering practices enabled by standardized product data information exchange. The program's focus was on standardizing the product information that is exchanged and then developing and demonstrating two of these exchange environments (design to analysis and design to support). The PAS-C team consisted of SCRA, Northrop Grumman. Lockheed Martin, Arthur D. Little and international TechneGroup Inc. integrated Support Systems, Inc. provided key support to the PAS-C program demonstration. Boeing was a major contributor during the initial program tasks including requirements identification and capture.
