Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is looking to its employees -- some of them, anyway -- for a few good ideas on how to cut the cost of developing and producing the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the Star-Telegram reports.

Lockheed has launched a monthlong program called the F-35 Affordability Challenge. Using a special computer program called Brainstorm, the project asks salaried employees to submit ideas for cost-saving techniques that can be analyzed.

"Since we launched the program Monday morning, we've already had about 30 suggestions," said spokesman B.J. Boling.

"Since we launched the program Monday morning, we've already had about 30 suggestions," said spokesman B.J. Boling.
