Abstract:

This paper documents schedule and cost growth in current major DoD weapon system acquisition programs that have attained Initial Operational Capability IOC. Utilizing Selected Acquisition Report data, a methodology for projecting probable future growth in evolving systems that have not yet reached IOC was developed and described. Use of the growth projection methodology as an adjunct to future IDA weapon system analyses is recommended.
