Unitech achieves Northrop Grumman DPD certification

Unitech Composites and Structures, a member of the AGC Composites Group, is pleased to announce the achievement of Fully Approved DPD Certification through Northrop Grumman. The certification facilitates a more efficient communication process between Unitech and Northrop Grumman through the electronic exchange of model-based engineering data.

Digital Product Definition (DPD) are the electronic data elements that specify the geometry and all design requirements for a product, as well as the use of this data throughout an integrated system using computer aided design (CAD), computer aided manufacturing (CAM), and coordinated measurement systems (CAD/CAM). "This new certification achievement reflects our continuing commitment to leading-edge quality and process improvement," said Rick Hundley, President of Unitech.

Hundley added, "We aim to achieve high performance and efficiency in our business relationship with Northrop Grumman." To be certified and maintain accreditations such as this, companies must implement detailed control measures and processes that govern receipt, usage, and distribution of product definition datasets, both internally and externally to the enterprise.

Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions in the aerospace, electronics, information systems, and technical services to government and commercial customers worldwide.

Unitech designs and manufactures composite structures in commercial and military aerospace markets. The company maintains continued commitment to innovation, quality, and flexibility towards the requirements of individual airlines and OEMs. Unitech operates within the Composites Group of AGC Aerospace & Defense.
