Abstract:

In new military systems, the development time required must be made as short as possible. In examining this critical problem, perhaps it is useful to first attempt to separate those elements of lead-time of an organizational or administrative nature from those primarily associated with technology. This paper recognizes the importance of administrative lag factors, but focuses its attention on suggestions for more realistically estimating technological lags.
