Dual source procurement in the Tomahawk program by J. L Birkler( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, part of a broader study examining the economic implications of establishing a second production source for the Advanced Cruise Missile (ACM), draws on the experience in the Tomahawk cruise missile program to determine (1) whether savings were indeed realized by bringing a second producer into the Tomahawk program, and (2) what conditions are necessary to achieve savings. The authors provide background on the Tomahawk program and its competitive strategies; examine estimates made at different times by different organizations and actual experience to date; and discuss single-source experience, comparing Tomahawk with the air-launched cruise missile, Harpoon, and other missile systems. Bringing a second producer into a program implies incremental non-recurring costs for additional tooling and special test equipment, a technical data package, licensing arrangements, qualification of a second producer, etc. Also, because of the loss of learning-curve benefits, lower production rates for both companies, and smaller quantities over which to spread fixed and semifixed costs, recurring costs may increase when a small production quantity is divided between two companies. It is not self-evident, therefore, that second-sourcing will save money for the government in every major system procurement

The relationship between science and the military in the Soviet Union by Simon Kassel( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report analyzes open Soviet basic and applied science research for its possible contribution to development of military technology. As the national planner and evaluator of research and manager of the science and technology information service, the State Committee for Science and Technology cannot be entirely divorced from the early stages of military RDT and E. The research projects of the Academy of Sciences, USSR, include many whose exact American equivalents are either performed or funded by DOD agencies. Ten specific examples are analyzed. There seems no need for such research to be duplicated in secret military facilities, as some believe. Censorship cannot be the only reason why basic research articles so far exceed engineering development reports in number and sophistication, since this is equally true of the technology of automobiles, TV, and cameras. The Soviets are frankly anxious to publish scientific research to maintain international prestige and give their major researchers entree into meetings and conferences where useful information can be gained

Ruble price levels and dollar-ruble ratios of Soviet machinery in the 1960s by Abraham S Becker( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evidence from Soviet sources bearing on the movement of the wholesale prices of machinery is assessed with a view to inferring crude price indexes. Official indexes, constructed for the 1960s from a limited sample and weighted by 1961 output values, show an almost monotonic decline of machinery and metal working (MMW) prices between 1960 and 1967 and rough stability in other branches. One-time price increases in a number of materials branches were instituted in the last half of 1967

The opportunity cost of the nonmonetary advantages of the Soviet military R & D effort by Gur Ofer( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzes the major nonbudgetary advantages enjoyed by the military research and development sector in the Soviet economic system. This analysis also investigates to what extent and in what form such advantages are potentially transferable from the military to the civilian sector, thereby constituting a real economic burden on the Soviet economy. The military R and D sector benefits from a high-powered priority system that overrides the planning network. It receives ample resources and facilities; it has first claim on supplies, specifically produced items and scarce resources. Finally, there are no spillover effects to the civilian economy. This disadvantage stems from secrecy, the need to limit new materials and components and lack of funds to diffuse the achievements of military R and D. This report concludes that the opportunity costs of Soviet military research and development are greater than reflected in the budget, and the investment of so much in military R and D seriously limits R and D in other areas.

Analysis of Air Force aircraft multiyear procurements with implications for the B-2 by Susan J Bodilly( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to a congressional mandate that the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) institute a program management initiative for the B-2 Advanced Technology Bomber Program, the OSD asked RAND to provide research and analytic support for a strategy to reduce B-2 procurement costs. This report, part of that effort, examines several past uses of multiyear procurement contracting by the Air Force to develop indicators of program stability useful in determining if a program is an appropriate candidate for multiyear procurement contracting. The report reviews the KC-10, F-16, and B-1B multiyear procurement programs regarding perceived risks, contractual arrangements to reduce or allocate those risks, and estimated cost reductions. The authors compare experiences on these procurements and then demonstrate the indicators on the B-2 program. They find that a multiyear procurement contract might allow for attractive cost reductions; however, program instability makes the B-2 an unlikely candidate for a multiyear approach
