Decision Technology: The Catalyst for Acquisition Improvement,
AIR FORCE BUSINESS RESEARCH MANAGEMENT CENTER WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OH
It is possible to manage all activities in a weapon acquisition with a system that predicts and achieves desired results. DECISION TECHNOLOGY provides the Program Manager with the exact information he needs to synthesize all program elements to accurately predict performance probability without compromising management style or objectives. It embraces a basic language that simplifies understanding and communication and applies a fundamental logic that clarifies the implications of each management action. It presents the RISK and CONSEQUENCE visibility in a format that enables the Program Manager to make necessary decisions and confidently defend them knowing they will achieve the results expected. Therefore, all the weapon system expectations are precisely known at all times. DECISION TECHNOLOGY applied in over seventy applications has resulted in significant savings in cost and time along with achievement of predictable outcomes. Author
