An adaptation of Project ABLE is presented which is tailored for systems developed through parallel prototypes. In this approach, the explicit quantification of the logistic effects of the development is deferred until the prototypes have been developed and tested and the production contract is being processed. The motivation to consider logistics during design is nevertheless emphasized. It is accomplished by making it clear to the developers that in the selection of a production source there will be substantial emphasis on the calculation of life cycle costs. These will include the prediction and subsequent verification of logistic effects, and will be assessed during source selection through use of data acquired from testing of the prototypes. Author
