The objective of this thesis is to analyze the Requirements Determination procedures in the Navys Conventional Gun Ammunition System in an attempt to identify areas for potential improvement. The Conventional Gun Ammunition System involves a logical progression of steps initiated on an annual basis. The Secretary of Defense begins the process by issuing broad guidance for the development of documentation to support budget submissions for combat and non-combat ordnance. The methods and procedures which are then used for determining procurement and renovation requirements involve extensive interactions between the Naval Sea Systems Command, the Ship Parts Control Center, and the Naval Ammunition Production Engineering Center. These interactions are being facilitated by a move toward a real time information system. Finally, areas for Navy concentration such as linking the procurement and renovation budget programs and minimizing delays in inspection and disposal are recommended to help make the future Requirements Determination system more efficient than the present one.
