This paper outlines a methodology to incorporate parametric design, production planning and scheduling optimization into a multi-disciplinary model in order to conduct design and producibility trades during preliminary design, applied to a composite fighter wing, enabling us to minimize cycle time, cost, and risk while maximizing performance and production rate.
