The objective of the research was the preparation of a systems oriented treatise on the Air Force Plant Representative Office AFPRO role and the AFPRO-System Program Office SPO relationships in the Weapon System Acquisition Process WSAP. To support the accomplishment of this objective, three secondary tasks were performed. The operative viewpoints and the supporting documentation were analyzed and compared to determine the actual role of the AFPRO in the WSAP. The AFPRO-SPO relationship was studied from the viewpoint of counterpart functional disciplines. The extent of correlation of AFPRO-SPO views concerning this relationship was determined. The existing AFPRO-SPO agreements were analyzed to determine whether or not they reflect the existing policy and rationale for their accomplishment.
