I'm working on an economics project to asess the degree of design continuity in sucessive generations of large commercial jet aircraft looking specifically at wing design. I need to find out the relative difference in cost of say manufacturing a 747 wing, without using any of the previous design and test data available from the earler generations of Boeing aircraft. Also I need to find areas of design continuity, areas of partial redesign and areas of full redesign. This is a purely academic project contributing to four years of research into the economics of large manufacturing industries. I would be grateful for any help you can provide about this topic, Thanks, Jim.
