The Assessing Manufacturing Readiness Course is intended to prepare the student to integrate the DoD Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) Deskbook criteria and the DoD Manufacturing Readiness Assessment (MRA) process into the acquisition life cycle of DoD programs. The course will use examples based on actual Air Force MRAs, as well as the DoD MRL Deskbook, to educate students on the proper use of MRL criteria/methodology to assess the readiness of the critical manufacturing elements associated with that acquisition program. The course will also prepare the student to immediately participate in and/or conduct an accurate MRA and prepare a defensible MRA Report on an acquisition program. Students will learn how MRL criteria/methodology and MRAs are applicable throughout the lifecycle of DoD programs. Students will understand MRL terminology, the meaning of Manufacturing Readiness Levels (MRLs), the use of best practices, how to properly conduct an MRA, and how to manage manufacturing risk. Students will also become familiar with integrating MRL criteria and MRAs into contract language.
