Abstract

Jet engines are an example of high technology products with extreme safety standards to the benefit of the airline customers. The resulting high development costs and the technical and financial risk lead to international corporations for the development and production of jet engines. As a consequence this worksharing has not only been limited to real engine projects but it has also been applied to the predevelopment phase of advanced future turbo fans. As an example for such an approach in the following contribution the international „Advanced Ducted Prop Fan“ cooperation between Pratt&Whitney, MTU München, Fiat Aviazione and Hamilton Standard is described with respect to motivation, organization of the program and the everyday work.
