Chuck Artymovich, director of operations, Lockheed Martin, presented yesterday on the Product and Process Lifecycle Management Strategy (PPLM) at Lockheed. It’s interesting to consider the complexities of managing a 100-year-old lifecycle.
One thing he noted was you have to build the right product – but also build it perfectly. With fighter aircraft, tolerances are often 1/3 the width of a human hair.
I spoke with Chuck after his presentation and here is a short video of our conversation.
