Developing Efficient Integrated Product Teams Executive Summary This proposal provides a path to move from a multi-layered functional organization to a streamlined, efficient product team structure. Organization into Integrated Product Teams (IPT) ties individual success to team performance. The IPT structure reduces management oversight requirements by driving accountability for performance to cost and schedule down to the individual employees directly responsible for our success. This structure also eliminates interdepartmental finger pointing and reduces conflict among personnel executing projects for our customers. The IPT structure will increase efficiency, reduce cost, enhance teamwork, and provide the team members with a sense of personnel accomplishment that both motivates and rewards our employees. 2

Developing Efficient Integrated Product Teams Introduction: Seamless Cross-Functional Project Teams are the Key to Successful Projects Integrating new systems into customer products is the backbone of our business. Our customers’ operational tempo combined with changes in the political climate demand that we respond to their everchanging needs faster and cheaper than ever. The heart of our responsiveness depends on the seamless integration of our project teams. Whether we are installing a new weapon system, or upgrading a radio, each function is highly dependent on other areas. For a typical developmental effort, engineering takes the customer requirements from project management and develops the detailed requirements that flow to the other functions to produce the product. Production control translates the detailed requirements from engineering into material requests and manufacturing work orders that are in turn fed to supply chain management and manufacturing. All of these areas feed information and requirements changes back into engineering to improve the product design. All of these areas combine to produce modification kits which installation teams use to modify customer equipment. Changes identified at installation impact all upstream functions. Constant interaction and communication
