Abstract:

The scope of the study includes the entire life of aircraft programs from the point following contractor selection to the retirement of the last flight unit from fleet service. The process of contractor selection was specifically excluded from this assignment, as were the procurement of aircraft engines and components. One case study was made of a guided missile program. The purpose was to determine whether there was a significant difference between manned aircraft and missile contracting. Although this study provided only a limited look into the missile field, it indicated that aircraft contracting methods are not completely applicable to missiles. Consequently, this report is concerned principally with contracting for manned aircraft.
