The production ramp up is fast becoming a reality throughout Pratt & Whitney. To learn more about what that means to employees, we are launching the "Profiling the Production Ramp Up" video series, featuring Pratt & Whitney employees from across the enterprise. Whether they work in manufacturing, operations, supply chain management, engineering or quality, their message is the same: "We're ready for the ramp."
In this video, "What It Takes to Create a 'Perfect' Jet Engine Assembly Facility," Matt Bavar, engine assembly mechanic, Pratt & Whitney West Palm Beach, shares his experience in creating a perfect jet engine assembly facility using the Production Preparation Process (3P) - with a lot of support from management.
"The management has taken into consideration us as the end users - the mechanics - taken all of our input and allowed us to design the perfect shop floor for what we're doing," Bavar said. "We were able to lay it out where our parts and our tools were more accessible and ergonmic to build the entire engine."
