Capabilities | Design Build


design_build_body.jpgLMI is far more than a “build to print” manufacturer. We build to specification, providing our customers with fully integrated, innovative and strategic design build solutions. Our services include everything from concept development and tool design to manufacturing, testing and certification. We also provide sustaining capabilities for the life of the aircraft, including technical publications.

A Streamlined Process

Building and maintaining your own in-house staff, or contracting with numerous suppliers, is costly and time-consuming. With LMI, you have one contract for all of the services you need. This simplifies and speeds up the design-build process. Our outstanding customer service keeps you informed on the status of your project, and our highly skilled project managers make sure your project is delivered on time and on budget.

One Integrated Team

Integrating our manufacturing engineers into the design build process helps ensure that your project progresses smoothly through the design-to-production process. Supported by common software and a single network across all locations, we are able to readily share data, optimize configuration control, meet engineering and technical requirements at first-build, and provide more producible, lower cost deliverables. Shorter time to market, a higher quality product and more savings are hallmarks of our integrated approach.
