DEFENSE SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
Final Report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on Defense Software I am forwarding the final report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on Defense Software. The Terms of Reference directed the Task Force to address 1. conditions under which procurement of defense software can appropriately use commercial practices 2. what management practices DOD should employ for the most efficient and effective definition of, procurement of, integration and testing of, and maintenance of defense software 3. whether DoD should develop any new software tools, technologies, or libraries 4. what approach should be used to assure that such developments enter the mainstream of commercial industry. The Task Force determined that the majority of problems associated with DoD software development programs are a result of undisciplined execution. Accordingly the Task Forces recommendations emphasize a back-to-the-basics approach.
