The Redstone GCI team not only brings a deep understanding of the manufacturing operations lifecycle but also includes the industry’s best compliance and organizational change management experts. Our team has connected the DCAA compliance, accounting, HR, ERP, and contracts management functions for over two decades to ensure operational growth and change are managed with a people-first mindset.

Our team can assist you in demonstrating your manufacturing readiness and compliance with maturity and scalability as a government contractor. Government contractors encounter several challenges in manufacturing and operations as they evolve their designs and products from prototype to low-rate initial production (LRIP) and full-rate production (FRP). Redstone GCI offers support and advice for you through each critical step of the process.


  • Strategy and Leadership Consulting – The Redstone team offers facilitation and consulting for operational leadership in the areas critical to a developing organization: organizational structure design and implementation, team design and development for operational disciplines, creation of strategy, establishment of objectives and KPIs/OKRs, establishing Operational Cadence/Operating Systems, facility expansion – including office and technical environments.
  • Supply Chain Strategy and Planning – Our team can assist you with aspects critical to establishing and de-risking your supply chain end-to-end. We can support you in establishing your supply chain risk management plan and framework in accordance with DoD Instruction 4140.01 and setting policies and practices that protect your supply chain in alignment with DFARS 252.239-7018 – Supply Chain Risk. We can assist with establishing best practices in supplier selection, qualification, and development through DCAA/DCMA compliance of supplier management and all material processes.
  • Quality Systems Consulting – Quality systems are the foundation of operations for any design and manufacturing organization. The Redstone GCI team can assist you in developing your strategy for compliance, certification, and maintenance of AS9100 or ISO 9001 and help you prepare your operational areas when your business is subject to independent financial and customer third-party audits.
  • Project Management – Project management is critical for internal execution and customer communication. Our experienced team can help ensure that you are utilizing best practices around the management of projects and have established cadences for program and project reviews that are effective, value-added, and do not distract the team from project execution and delivering on customer commitments.
  • Production and Manufacturing Readiness Consulting – As your design matures and you prepare to move from prototype builds and low-rate initial production (LRIP) to ramping for full-rate production (FRP), the Redstone GCI team can help navigate as you determine your manufacturing readiness level (DoD MRL Deskbook) and provide facilitation and objective eyes for your MRL self-assessment and reporting.
  • Additional Production Strategy and Consulting – Redstone GCI offers consulting for various production-related needs, from establishing teams, building the appropriate facility, establishing 5S and visual workplace programs, and evaluating production process capability.
