Abstract : The military and industry jointly and separately have important jobs to perform in the specification and selection of military information processing systems. Each should attempt to accomplish those tasks for which it is best suited. The military, as the user and customer, should concentrate on the requirements analysis in order to determine both the detailed perormance and operational requirements that the proposed system must meet. Industry should concentrate on designing a system to generate the required outputs from the available inputs within the given time constraints while meeting the operational requirements. A proper and adequate requirements analysis performed by the military might help eliminate industry's sometimes inadvertent attempts to reorganize the military or attempt to redirect their assigned mission to bring into consonance their view of the requirements and objectives of the systems design.
