Abstract:

It is widely held that competition can produce savings in the acquisition cost of weapon systems. However, a recent study of seven programs shows only three generated sufficient savings to offset the investments required to obtain them. Our study finds that the savings depends on how hungry producers are. When a loss has resulted, capacity utilization has been above 80.
