Abstract:

This report emphasizes the importance of interface management in todays systems acquisition environment. The impact of organizational relationships, both internal and external, is presented. The Tiger Team approach is discussed along with multiple program direction, interface program plans, joint funding and reporting. The roles of the contractor and the government are examined. Interface management is seen to require the essential elements of program management itself. The traditional concept of the physicalfunctional interface is expanded to include the concept of an interface management program. Finally, an interface management model is presented to illustrate the total program nature of the approach and to point out the three distinctive levels of control present in most interface programs.
