This paper presents a comprehensive effort of theoretical investigations and industrial applications of computer-based rapid design and manufacturing technology for high-integrity aerospace components. Two rapid manufacturing processes have been proposed by integrating rapid prototyping, high-speed machining, reverse engineering and geometric computation theory. They have been validated through trial manufacturing of a matrix of a matrix of current aerospace components embracing critical design features to be found across many aerospace components. It has been found that the results of this research if applied to future development programmes will provide aerospace companies the benefits of significant decrease in product introduction lead-time, savings in non-recurring product introduction costs and considerable reduction in manufacturing costs for 'one off' and low volume service parts.
