F/A-22 Cutaway A couple of days ago, DID ran an article by the President of the National Defense Industrial Association that addressed the importance of improved U.S. defense manufacturing. Just a day or two later came word that Lockheed Martin Corp. in Fort Worth, TX had received a $395 million cost-plus fixed-fee contract modification. Its object? Putting more specifics into some undefinitized contract terms (P00004 and P00009) re: Performance-Based Agile Logistics Support for F/A-22 Lot 5 Production Aircraft. Agile logistics includes aspects of supply chain visibility, lean manufacturing, and collaboration among a complex network of partners. Solicitation began July 2004, negotiations were completed April 2005, and work will be complete by December 2007. Work will be performed Lockheed Martin Corp. in Marietta, GA.
