Abstract:

The purpose of IDA Memorandum Report M-552, Software Technology Development and Deployment Plan for the DOD Technology Base, is to document the findings of three workshops sponsored by the Institute for Defense Analyses IDA. The participants were asked to place primary focus on actions that could enhance DODs ability to deploy software intensive weapon systems, to capitalize on the findings, conclusions, and recommendations of previous DOD software studies, and to draw from their own personal experiences. The IDA study took a different approach than the previous studies by addressing those common user problems directly related to the deployment of operational software intensive weapon systems. The results were five key findings and recommendations for the DDDRERAT that address specific technology base efforts as well as DOD policy management infrastructure changes that should be considered for immediate action.
