This publication focuses on the Three M’s. In today’s world, the acquisition of aircraft in financially stringent environments favors multi-mission platforms.  The second M is maintainability. New platforms are built with a significant focus on enhancing their ability to be maintained.  The final M is manufacturability. Briefing slides and simulations are not the same thing as a finished product of high quality and high reliability. Here you need a trained workforce, good engineering practices and an ability to deliver a consistent product with high standards.
