ROI Savings and Benefits:

The savings on any one of these items will offset the cost:

  • Cost equivalent to one man-month of engineering time saved in the development process is at least 4x (4 man-months of effort), probably more.
  • Standardization of Document Support Forms Control, Management, and Traceability of Content
  • Assurance of Completion and Correctness
  • Supports early discovery of design and process errors.
  • Enhances efficiency of certification process immensely.
