Abstract:

The Institute for Defense Analyses Paper P-2306, The Relationship Between Computer-Aided Acquisition and Logistics Support CALS and Concurrent Engineering, presents an analysis of the relationship between the CALS program and concurrent engineering. The paper is limited to the two principal relationships between CALS and concurrent engineering multi-enterprise information frameworks and individual information exchange standards. The approach was to survey relevant CALS and concurrent engineering literature, including the data and workshop publications used in preparing the IDA Report R- 338, The Role of Concurrent Engineering in Weapons System Acquisition. The CALS information was derived from MIL-HDBK-59, interviews with the CALS Director, two CALS conferences, and interviews with two DoD industry representatives to the Industry CALSConcurrent Engineering Steering Group. Conclusions and recommendations are presented.
