The Challenge

Lockheed Martin's plant in Clearwater, Florida has over 400 employees and 500 different suppliers. The location produces a low-volume high-mix of ruggedized, high-reliability electronic data and signal processing equipment. Keeping track of Quality can be a challenge in such a complicated environment. Pushing forward to make improvements over the last decade has been a clear focus for Lockheed Clearwater.



The Approach
