WILLCOR has been performing Manufacturing Readiness Assessments and Manufacturing Risk Assessments over its 20 year history. We treat each engagement as a unique opportunity to assist our customers, typically DoD Program Management Offices, to identify the most cost effective and low risk manufacturing processes. To assist PMs in fulfilling DOD 5000 requirements, WILLCOR performs risk-based Manufacturing Readiness Assessments (MRAs) in accordance with the requirements promulgated by DOD to identify and mitigate manufacturing and production risks. There are many ways a PM can satisfy the many "shall/will" statements specified in the directive. A MRA compares a program, system, subsystem, or item's manufacturability at various stages of development against a well-defined set of criteria for a given phase of the Acquisition Cycle.
