Morson Projects were appointed by BAE Systems to provide support for the design of part of the wing on their new advanced Hawk aircraft.
The project was delivered through the collaboration of our design, stress and tooling teams working together to develop the concept/DFM for a new wing with the introduction of new combat slat on the aircraft.
Our internal process of concurrent engineering capability allowed us to deliver in challenging time frames – our team delivered the new advanced Hawk in 7 months, instead of the initial 18 months forecast.
Development of concept/DFM for new wing with the introduction of new combat slat was done across 2 sites with:
- 32 Designers
- 19 Stress
- Detailed Design using CATIA V5, R23
- DFM Drawings
- Assemblies and installation Drawings
- Mass Reporting (BOM)
- DFM Stress Reports ( Static and F&DT)
- Checkstress Static and F&DT Reports ( First Flight support reports with a new set of loads)
- Full wing FEM
- Analysis using BAE methods ( Analysis tools were developed by Morson Projects based in BAE approved methods)
- Stress Sort tools for F&DT
- MSP plan with all the deliverables
- Tracker for daily drumbeats with forecast of all deliverables for the next 2 weeks
- Spend against progress / EVM – Earned Value Management
- Analysis/mitigation of critical path
Delivering the project requirements to an agreed Statement of Work (SOW), the Morson Projects team carried out services to include:
- EASA Part 21J Design Services
- Tooling Design & Manufacture
- Structural Design & Analysis
