Abstract : Since the early 1970's, the techniques for conducting manufacturing assessments have improved as the lessons-learned from each new team were passed on the next. However, one area of the manufacturing assessment process, the scoring, has remained relatively unchanged over the years. This paper presents a fresh approach to the scoring process. The process outlined in this paper was first developed and used on the Next Generation Trainer Program. Since then, it has been applied successfully to other Aeronautical Systems Division manufacturing reviews both in Europe and the United States. The methods discussed here can be applied to other scoring scenarios such as source selection, Cost/Schedule Criteria System (C/SCS) reviews, and related review. The technique is generally applicable to any problem whose solution can be improved by adding objectivity and traceability to an otherwise subjective scoring process.
