Abstract : In February 2010, the Secretary of the Army directed the Under Secretary of the Army and the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army to implement a CPR pilot process to conduct an Army-wide, all components revalidation of the operational value of Army requirements within and across capability portfolios to existing joint and Army warfighting concepts. The CPR is designed to support the Army's overarching and strategic level goals of fielding an effective, flexible, affordable, and modern force. This effort will describe and document the CPR process, but its main objective will focus on developing alternative trade space analysis methodologies using a combination of Bayesian Statistical methods and linear programming/optimization techniques in order to present an effective and informative portfolio trade space analysis to key decision makers.
