Abstract:

Software sustainment costs continue to rise as the Army increases use of complex software-intensive systems to support military operations and associated business functions. Various studies have identified potential processes and procedures to help control software costs however, no study has been undertaken to determine whether organizational changes to the Army Materiel Commands AMC software support centers can improve performance and reduce costs.
