Accelerating the transition of latest applied sciences into platforms and items could be the most important to the dep. of Defenses improvement of a lighter, extra versatile scuffling with strength. present lengthy transition times-ten years or extra is now typical-are attributed to the complexity of the method. to assist meet those demanding situations, the dep. of security requested the nationwide examine Council to check classes realized from quick know-how functions through built-in layout and production teams. This record provides the result of that research, which used to be in response to a workshop held to discover those winning instances. 3 key parts emerged: making a tradition for innovation and quick expertise transition; methodologies and methods; and permitting instruments and databases.

If a technology has progressed far enough that insertion pilot programs are feasible in parallel with ongoing product-development programs, this can provide the needed application experience. This is one strategy to overcome the risk aversion of future product development programs. SUCCESSFUL BEST PRACTICES Based on the workshop presentations, the committee identified three corporate best practices that are effective at accelerating technology development and product introduction into the public marketplace.

SOURCE: J. , November 24, 2003. Another communication issue that arises when customers are not part of the development process is that developers have to market their technology to potential users. This can result in overselling a new material that has not been fully tested.
