Abstract:

The requirements criteria established in DODI 7000.2 for contractor implementation of a CostSchedule Control System CSCS are most readily adapted to function-oriented industrial organizations. These criteria are generally not suitable for application by task-oriented organizations such as are found in government R and D. This report describes how DODI 7000.2 was applied by a government R and D laboratory for single-project management of CSCS supported development programs. The methods and procedures developed for this application are presented with illustrations showing the actual implementation process. Problems inherent in the required transition from a task-oriented to a function-oriented configuration are discussed as well as the methods used to overcome them. Central to a satisfactory solution of these problems is that the necessary changes provided the minimum upset to the existing management and accounting system. Also introduced is a method for charting and measuring performance.
