Abstract:

This paper provides a general summary of a coordinated set of procedures, models, and data to be used throughout the process of acquiring new weapon systems. These procedures, models, and data can be used a to provide assessments of cost, human resources, and logistics resources required for support and operations of weapon systems, b to coordinate the development of training programs and technical manuals to ensure complete and cost-effective maintenance performance instructions, and c to ensure that supportability considerations and human resources impacts are explicitly considered in the design of the weapon system and are traceable. The technology can be tailored to the needs of specific acquisition programs. Quick-response analyses for various purposes can be supported, and the technology can be applied iteratively.
