The application of computers in acquisition and logistics support is to major requirement of future weapons systems acquisitions. Although the design of the SEAWOLF preceded most new DOD sponsored requirements, the program incorporated many initiatives that will serve as prototypes for most acquisitions. It The SEAWOLF Program is employing computer technology to integrate the design, production and logistic the ships life cycle. The transportabiiity of TI electronic data from the design phase ti to construction, and on to logistics dc is key to improving efficiency and a more closely linking designer, shipbuilder and maintainer. SFAWOLF is an important step in the overall effort to improve weapons system acquisition efficiency. Five Lessons learned by SEAWOLF will be valuable in preparing other acquisition programs to take advantage of the integration of computer data bases that can bring greater success in the execution of design, production mi and logistics support phases.
