Abstract:

A discussion of the applications of computer systems to the weapons systems development process, with emphasis on the role that the government might play in promoting, supporting, and implementing development of new computer-based systems for engineering support in the aerospace industry. Potential payoffs to the government lie in reduction of design costs, improvement of design and product performance, enhancement of engineering and creativity and productivity, and reduction of lead time for design, prototype production, and final production. A number of alternatives are open to the government in increasing the rate of development and diffusion of computer technology in industry. To determine the level and nature of such support, it is recommended that a study be made of the specific economic benefits that would result. Author
