Pagination or Media Count:
To better understand the process and the conflicts inherent in the acquisition of training devices, a case history of A-7E Weapon System Trainer procurements is presented. An analysis of the role of training device procurement within the framework of the total ILS concept as applied to weapon system programs is attempted. Changing managerial perspectives are viewed as a consequence to lessons learned and the attendant realization of the need for practical tradeoffs in terms of trainer capability, cost and schedule. The intent is to illustrate the significant areas which warrant managements attention throughout the entire acquisition process.
