Abstract:

This report describes the conduct and results of a study to analyze and address three critical issues in controlling the manpower, personnel, and training MPT impacts of evolving weapons systems. Critical decisions involving MPT characteristics of systems, and where in the acquisition process and by whom these decisions are made are identified. A means of communicating these decisions to designers in an effective manner and promoting compliance with desired MPT characteristics of systems through design is discussed in detail. Finally, approaches to verifying that effective communication of MPT contraints has been made and that MPT issues are considered in systems design are presented, and issues to be resolved in future developments are discussed.
