Abstract:

A three-day workshop was held March 1990 to explore problems endemic to the Safing, Arming, and Fuzing SAF industry. This paper presents the activities, findings, and proposed solutions generated during the workshop. The purpose of this report is to provide the necessary documentation for thorough interpretation of the results by industry and government SAF device experts. The participants identified 58 inhibitors to effective acquisition of SAF devices. The influence relationships among 39 of the more important inhibitors were explored by the participants and an influence structure was created. Fifty-nine initiatives for ameliorating the inhibitors of effective SAF device acquisition were generated by the participants. Thirteen of these initiatives were superimposed on the influence structure of inhibitors.
