Tools and processes matured somewhat, but collaboration between locations still had room for improvement. The Printed Circuit Board Global Services Manager, Kim Osborn, was challenged to make a virtual team as effective as a co-located team, and to ensure seamless collaboration and transition of work to the India Design Center (IDC) while maintaining the highest quality standards and compressing cycle times.<br><br> Solution In addition to working with the IDC engineering manager to structure the best team to engage for the PCB design project, Kim adjusted her department 9s design and collaboration processes to include close integration of the IDC team. She implemented a special mentoring program to ensure the IDC team was working with the same level of domain knowledge so that the IDC team could go forward as a true customized extension of her engineering team. Export compliance, contracts and administrative processes were streamlined to ensure adherence to requirements and also to improve cycle time expectations.<br><br> All of these actions contributed towards the highest level of success. Results The IDC engineering team is ramping up in record time, quickly gaining the knowledge and understanding of the many aerospace and project specific nuances. With day-to- day and sometimes hourly contact via email and instant messaging between the PCB engineering team and the IDC team, the time zone difference is used to the best advantage in this virtual collaboration environment.<br><br> With the ability to work two full-time shifts utilizing the IDC, the PCB engineering team is able to compress cycle times and reduce costs, while maintaining the highest quality work product.

His primary responsibility is to identify the best set of engineering resources for getting our projects done, utilizing contractors from places such as Russia, China and India. Given his experience working in India, Roger was tasked with assisting in building an aerospace experienced team at the Rockwell Collins India Design Center (IDC).<br><br> Solution Working with the IDC, he and the recruiting team focused on hiring aerospace experienced senior engineers. These seasoned engineers have the domain expertise needed for Rockwell Collins programs and projects and are mentoring engineering graduates from India universities as the center grows its staff. Roger and the hiring team brought on the first group of engineers for the IDC, as well as worked with Rockwell Collins e-Business to implement the technology infrastructure and provide the engineering tools required.<br><br> Roger worked closely with various Rockwell Collins engineering departments and IDC management to establish the initial flight management system and displays work packages for the IDC. cThe engineering team has met our expectations and challenges in a number of avionics and electronics related areas. The IDC engineers provide value to our projects and programs and to the company overall. d Roger French Principal Engineering Manager Rockwell Collins Benefits Today, it is clear that the IDC engineering team is motivated and highly respectful of the quality that goes into Rockwell Collins aerospace avionics, electronics and communications products.<br><br> They are eager to learn as much as possible from tenured Rockwell Collins engineers about our products and systems and the processes we use to develop them. Now Rockwell Collins Commercial Systems is able to give larger, more complete segments of work to the IDC unlike when we contract with outside engineering firms. And with cost effective IDC labor rates, programs are beginning to benefit.<br><br> Going forward, Roger believes the IDC will be integral in enabling Rockwell Collins to remain extremely competitive in the global marketplace.
