Abstract:

The F-15 System Program Office SPO concurrently contracted for the development and initial production quantities for the -4 Conformal Fuel Tanks CFTs and associated bomb racks to be delivered with the F-15E aircraft. The study reviews the program history, contractual implementation problem identification, and corrective action. The study concludes that as a result of the F-15 SPO implementing the concurrent acquisition strategy the government saved valuable procurement time, achieved greater visibility into designdevelopment costs, and was better prepared to resolve individual development problems associated with the CFT and bomb rack programs.
