Benet Laboratories’ mission is to support the warfighter with high quality weapon systems and components as soon as they can be delivered. The 60 MM Mortar System is effective, lightweight and portable — a practical system for the terrain in Afghanistan. Because of this need, there was a high demand for its expedited manufacture delivery to the troops. In an effort to reduce the production cost and times, the U.S. Army Watervliet Arsenal initiated a Lean Effort program for the system; one of the program’s goals was to optimize the CNC programs used to manufacture the system Handle using Production Module 3D, a Third Wave Systems’ toolpath analysis product.
“The use of Third Wave software is key to our rapid delivery.” – Dan Baker, Engineer
