Abstract:

The study reviews the use of the systems managementsystem program office SPO approach to the management of research and development test of space and missile vehicles. The SPO management concept uses an elaborate interdisciplinary organization wholly dedicated to the acquisition of one system. The study concludes that with very scarce resources particularly experienced people and funds and the present situation of many small systems that test economies and efficiencies can be realized by the use of special functional service staffs. They can perform many test planning duties in a centralized and single point-of-contact manner for all SPOs.
