Abstract:

Decreases in the manufacturing productivity growth rate, rising weapon systems costs, and the decline of the defense industrial base are major interrelated problems currently facing the Department of Defense DOD. The Industrial Modernization Incentives Program IMIP is a DOD capital investment incentive plan designed to help alleviate these problems. The objective of this research is to trace the historical elements of the IMIP, provide an analysis of the IMIP and the actions that have been taken to implement it, and to advance recommendations regarding the IMIP for consideration during the Program test period.
