Evaluation program cuts costs

Using Carnegie Mellon University's Technology Insertion Demonstration and Evaluation program to improve its design process, Carco Electronics Inc., a missile guidance system vendor in Pittsburgh, was able to cut its control system design costs in half. After an evaluation, personnel from the program suggested that Carco use a commercial modeling tool to eliminate the need to physically prototype and test each design. The company expects to save $150,000 in design costs over the course of a year.

The program helps small businesses adopt advanced software technologies to meet their goals, ultimately strengthening the nation's defense manufacturing base. More info may be found at http://www
