Manufacturing Readiness Assessment ADDM Template v 1.2

This Template is courtesy of the Air Force, provided from the Air Force Acquisition Document Development & Management (ADDM) System, which is a restricted DoD site. Please note that this is an Air Force Template provided for your guidance, and that the other services or agencies may have different documentation requirements. This document is current as of 3/9/2016 ADDM template source review.Based on: Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) Deskbook dated AUG 2015 ADDM Application link Manufacturing Readiness Assessment have been designed to manage manufacturing risk in acquisition, while at the same time increasing the ability of the technology development projects to transition new technology to weapon system applications.  The results of a Manufacturing Readiness Assessment are documented in the Manufacturing Readiness Assessment report. The government program/project office is the primary audience for the report since it forms the bias for managing manufacturing risk. In general, the report establishes a manufacturing maturity baseline that should be used to either create a plan to increase manufacturing readiness/maturity sufficiently to support transition to the next phase of acquisition or to demonstrate that the technology is ready for transition.  The report may also provide information to an MDA determination of whether the level of manufacturing risk supports Milestone approval. When actual MRLs are compared to target values based on the stage of the life cycle, the report provides a basis for an analysis and assessment of the risks associated with each manufacturing thread. Cost, schedule or performance manufacturing risks that are not resolved must be defined and require manufacturing maturity plans. These plans should include a description of the approach to resolve the risk, cost estimates, resources available, and schedule impacts. The manufacturing maturation plan is normally delivered along with the assessment report. See section 5 of the MRL Deskbook, v2.4, August 2015. Within this template, enter applicable verbiage in each of the blue-font “click here to enter text” fields, as specified by the accompanying guidance sections.  If the document section is not applicable, label as such and provide a short rationale. The Manufacturing Readiness Assessment template has been designed to manage manufacturing risk in acquisition, while at the same time increasing the ability of the technology development projects to transition new technology to weapon system applications.  The results of a Manufacturing Readiness Assessment are documented in the Manufacturing Readiness Assessment report.
