This thesis focuses on the application of systems engineering principles, methodologies, and processes to Innovations Inc.’s future improved manufacturing process. Innovations Inc. is one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of electrical connectors in the aerospace and defense industry market. This thesis will first present the current system and process of Innovations Inc. and outlines the current issues associated with its manufacturing process, such as non-conformance and late shipment of end products to the customers that results in returns, request for rework, and unsatisfied customers. A proposed systems engineering process will be introduced as a means of improvement to prevent such issues from the beginning and as all possible risks will be assessed, a strict timeline and schedule will be enforced, and a thorough verification and validation between the customer, Innovations Inc., and vendors will be implemented. These will be presented in the form of several charts, graphs and forms as an example and can be applied to all of Innovation Inc.’s purchase orders as a reference.
