    The organizational technology, e.g., pland and machinery, required to support the effort.


    • Were production implications considered during concept exploration?

    • Was production considered sufficiently in design?

    • Do program plans include vendor support?

    • Do program plans include long lead items?

    • Are the production processes proven?

    • Are sufficient, cost-effective facilities available for production?

    • Is the infrastructure provided (e.g., office space, facilities, supplies, etc.) sufficient for program needs?

    • What is the impact to the program of changes in infrastructure availability or performance?

    • Does the program need Capital Equipment?

    • Is the capital equipment provided correct and sufficient for program needs?

    • What is the impact to the program of changes in capital equipment availability or performance?

    • Does contract offer any incentive to modernize facilities or reduce cost?

    • Do buildings have appropriate storage for hazardous materials and appropriate venting for toxic or asphyxiating gases?

    • Does machinery and equipment have required safety devices?

    • Do noise levels increase the probability of mishap occurrence?

    • When potential for injury from chemicals exists, are appropriate antidotes or first aid available?

    • Is the need for eye wash and washdown facilities assessed?

    • On occasion, when temporary facilities or construction are necessary for certain operations, do these facilities present significant hazards?

    • Are buildings housing hazardous activity designed to be compatible with the enclosed operation?

    • Are buildings housing lasers or other electromagnetic radiating devices designed to minimize hazards and provide controlled access?

    • Does the design minimize the effects of any hazardous activity such as fire, explosion, toxicity, radiation, and asphyxiation?

    • Can visual and aural warnings and alarms be readily seen and heard?

    • Does the building design further facilitate the rapid evacuation of occupants?

    • Are fire extinguishing agents readily accessible and effective, but by themselves do not present a significant hazard to personnel?

    • For air operations, are runway conditions and airfield lighting investigated for hazard potential?

    • Are facilities in an aircraft or aircraft engine environment evaluated for foreign object damage (FOD) potential? (Included are test cells, hangars, runways, engine runup areas, ramps, trim pads, and ramp accessways.)
