Abstract:

The primer illustrates the use of the Air Force ADP Experience Handbook Pilot Version published as AD-646 863. The use of the handbook is illustrated by first preparing a sample ADPS proposal and subsequently evaluating the proposal with experience data retrieved from the handbook. The sample ADPS proposal is written to a set of ADPS proposal submission instructions that are advanced as an improvement over existing submission instructions. The ADPS proposal submission instructions are included in the primer for completeness. The sample ADPS proposal is for a Major Air Command Centralized Military Pay System. The proposal is hypothetical in intent and content but has correspondence to a number of existing Air Force systems and procedures. Evaluation of the sample proposal involves first obtaining cost estimates and relevant experience data from the experience handbook. After all experience data relevant to the proposed ADPS has been retrieved, the sample ADPS proposal is evaluated in light of the retrieved data. The data in the pilot version experience handbook used for evaluation of the sample ADPS was based on a sample of 18 existing Air Force ADP Systems. The conclusion of the evaluation is that the proposal should be returned for further study and analysis of certain aspects.
