Abstract:

The problem of control and forecasting of major military hardware contracts becomes more difficult as their complexity increases. This paper proposes a broad method of making a first pass analysis of a proposal considering variables of cost, time, performance, design, technology and use. The use of this model will enable the military planner to quickly eliminate unsuitable alternatives and channel his in-depth analysis in the right direction. The approach can also be used for long-range forecasting of military hardware costs. Author
