Pagination or Media Count:
Military project management for the production phase of system acquisition is discussed. A management framework based on analysis of five principles--planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling--is constructed. Organization alternatives for production management are proposed to the Aegis Weapon System project manager, who sponsored this research. The results of this analysis indicate that when a project managers background is categorized as being operational, administrative or technical, significant conclusions can be drawn concerning the characteristics of the project manager best suited to manage the production phase and the structure of his production organization.
