Abstract:

This technology assessment consolidates Phase I Concept Definition results of the Integrated Weapon System Master Plan IWSMP Program for review in executive level form. It addresses the overall issue of integrated master planning and its role in the present environment of change within the Department of Defense DoD and the new Air Force Materiel Commands AFMCs former, separately managed acquisition and sustainment communities. The specific purpose of the project was to validate the need for an automated toolsystem to facilitate integrated master planning for Air Force weapon system and other single manager programs under the product-oriented Integrated Weapon System Management IWSM philosophy, implemented when the AFMC was formed in July 1992. The effort consisted of extensive research, including survey work, into the impacts of IWSM and the DoD business process overhaul upon the planning process in order to accurately document program manager and customer requirements for improved planning and execution.
