Abstract:

Acquisition of systems is an important part of the total budget of the DoD. Its importance can be appreciated in that about one third of the FY 79 budget is allocated for research, development, and procurement of systems. Consequently, effective measures to improve the process can add substantially to the savings that might otherwise be lost by using outdated methods. The purpose of the study, therefore, is to examine the process briefly, identify some of the major limitations, and recommend improvements to achieve better program development at reduced costs.
