The Program Management personnel at Curtiss-Wright employ industry-standard management and reporting processes that cover the requirements of a broad segment of its customers. Curtiss-Wright provides programmatic and technical reporting based on the individual requirements of the programs, ranging from Government and Military customers to commercial users as well as other agencies that may require customized reporting processes.
On the programmatic side, Curtiss-Wright has established regular monitoring and reporting processes for the schedule and budgetary facets of a program. An Earned Value System (EVMS) is used for most programs per mandate, and reporting is conducted based on frequencies dictated by the contract. Technical reporting includes items such as First Article Inspections (FAI), maintaining a Failure Reporting and Corrective Action System (FRACS), and Supplier Audits for adherence to quality assurance requirements.
Partnering to Reduce Risk and Accelerate Development
This white paper shows that when system integrators partner with a trusted and proven solution vendor, they are freed from the time commitment and burden of trying to complete every development stage themselves. As a result, they are in a better position to keep projects on spec, on budget and on time.
Per end-customer requirements and contract needs, Curtiss-Wright also participates in Program Design Reviews (PDR), Critical Design Reviews (CDR), System Design Reviews (SDR), and other meetings as needed to provide support for its products and services.
Examples of the types of report processes that we support include:
