Abstract : The specific purpose of this study was to conduct an audit trace of the personnel and training subsystem development of the XMI Abrams Tank System as a case study of the major systems acquisition process. From this case study lessons learned from the XMI experience have been formulated which may be helpful in developing recommendations for improving personnel and training subsystem integration in the Army Life Cycle System Management Model (LCSMM). The scope of the study was restricted to personnel and training issues which occurred between program initiation and ASARC III. Other events in the XMI development process were included only if they had a major impact on personnel and training issues or were required to make the development process comprehensible. (Author)
