Case Studies

Barber-Nichols Inc. (BNI) and the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) located at Pennsylvania State University applied Design for Manufacturability (DFM) principles to the U.S. Navy's Anti-Torpedo Torpedo (ATT) development project. The effort cut ATT production costs by 20 percent and the additional funds spent on Design for Manufacturability will be fully recouped in the first year of production.

In 2000, Barber-Nichols designed and produced an LNG vapor return compressor for a receiving terminal and power plant in Penuelas, Puerto Rico.
