Welcome to MRL Assist
Developed under the direction of the Joint Defense Manufacturing Technology Panel, MRL ASSIST is a tool designed to allow the A&L Community continuous insight into manufacturing, quality, production, and industrial-base risks to acquisition programs and technology development efforts. The tool contains a knowledgebase of questions appropriate to determine the relative maturity of a program from a manufacturing perspective. Based on a program's responses to the questions, the tool will assess the program's manufacturing readiness for that phase and identify risks to proceeding to the next phase. The MRL ASSIST tool also provides a capability for executive-level assessments at milestone reviews.
MRLs 1-3 are in preconcept and do not have any assessment questions developed at this time. MRL 10 will focus on continuous improvement using tools such as Lean and Six Sigma to optimize processes.
