Description

Unified life-cycle engineering (ULCE) is an approach that combines aspects of concurrent engineering, total quality management, and retirement-for-cause (RFC) strategies at the early design stage of components [1–3]. In order to implement ULCE approaches, inspectability, reliability, and the other “ilities” of Fig. 1 must be linked to areas such as quality assurance, life-cycle costs, and materials and processes in a comprehensive design environment.
