Deregulating the airlines by Elizabeth E Bailey( Book )

18 editions published between 1983 and 1991 in English and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La industria de las aerolíneas ha sido golpeada por las fuerzas de la desregulación desde mediados de los años 1970. Muchas nuevas empresas se han introducido, algunas de ellas con diferentes filosofías de precios y de operación y algunos de ellos han prosperado. Otras aerolíneas han ido a la quiebra. En general, el costo real del transporte aéreo ha disminuido considerablemente. Sin embargo, los efectos han variado drásticamente de un mercado a otro. ¿Exactamente cómo fue previsto y planeado este experimento masivo? ¿Cómo ha funcionado? ¿Y cómo va a trabajar en el largo plazo? La desregulación de las aerolíneas narra y analiza las decisiones adoptadas por la Junta de Aeronáutica Civil durante la transición a la desregulación y el razonamiento detrás de la Ley de desregulación de las aerolíneas de 1978
Defense and the economy : annex C to Adjusting to the drawdown : report of the Defense Conversion Commission by David R Graham( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Institute for Defense Analyses prepared this paper for the Defense Conversion Commission to provide an assessment of the economic effects of the defense budget drawdown. Using economic simulation models, we estimate the potential long-run economic benefits, and the short-run transitional costs, of the planned budget cuts. We present several cases showing how the results depend on alternative policies for spending the peace dividend
Reconstitution and defense conversion : supporting material for Adjusting to the drawdown : report of the Defense Conversion Commission( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Institute for Defense Analyses prepared this paper for the Defense Conversion Commission. It describes DoD's mission to preserve the nation's ability to reconstitute forces, and outlines a reconstitution strategy. The proposed strategy relies on DoD's in-place suppliers, who support ongoing modernization and support programs, augmented by commercial suppliers. The paper outlines the programs and policies needed to tap the commercial supplier base for reconstitution, and examines needed industrial base capabilities. The conclusion identifies the appropriate defense conversion policies to support reconstitution

Defense acquisition : observations two years after the Packard Commission by David R Graham( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1986 Packard Commission report recommended changes in the defense acquisition process to reduce development times and costs and to produce weapons better suited to war fighters' needs. These recommendations included restructuring the acquisition organization, improving the work force, overhauling the acquisition decision-making process, and reforming regulations. The Office of the Under Secretary for Acquisition requested this study to help inform the next administration about the current status of acquisition reform: What has been tried, what is working and what isn't. It asked IDA to review developments within the Department in the last two years, and to solicit the views of officials responsible for making the acquisition process work. It directed IDA to provide a progress report on acquisition reform, to make observations on the current status of the acquisition process, and to recommend priorities for further actions. This report summarizes IDA's findings and recommendations. It describes Presidential Directives and legislation resulting from the Packard Commission, and subsequent activity within the department. IDA's findings are based in part on a review of recent legislation, directives and other documents. In addition, IDA conducted interviews with more than 100 individuals during the Summer and Fall of 1988. The interviewees include officials in the Under Secretary's organization and other OSD components of former DoD personnel, academic experts, and officials outside of DoD
Do finances influence airline safety, maintenance, and services? by David R Graham( Book )

3 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study addresses the question of whether financially stressed airlines are likely to cut back activities contributing to airline safety, to reduce maintenance expenditures, or degrade service levels. Theoretical analysis shows that financially unsuccessful airlines have some incentives to cut back in these areas. The forces influencing such decisions are so numerous and complex, however, that we cannot predict whether such cutbacks would or would not occur in any particular case. We do show, however, that variations in the profitability, liquidity, and debt-equity leverage of the eleven trunk airlines over the period 1965 to 1977 did not affect their accidents, maintenance expenditures, and passenger complaints. A summary of this study and our findings are presented in this report. (Author)
The Future of military R & D : towards a flexible acquisition strategy by Paul H Richanbach( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. will have difficulty maintaining its technological superiority for future military systems, due to declining defense budgets, lower levels of production for weapon systems, and great uncertainty regarding future military requirements. What is needed is a military R & D system that generates technological options of sufficient quality and in sufficient numbers so that, in spite of the uncertainty they face, U.S. forces can be fully prepared to meet a wide range of contingencies. The paper explores the attributes of a flexible acquisition strategy, in which numerous options would be explored from basic research (budget category 6.1) through advanced development (6.3A). Programs would enter full development (6.4) less often and more selectively, and not every 6.4 development program would be expected to reach production. The paper recommends and discusses seven actions that are important elements of a flexible acquisition strategy for R & D. DoD should: (1) reaffirm that maintaining superior technological options remains a vital strategic objective, (2) increase funding for science and technology (S & T), (3) treat R & D as a product in its own right, (4) increase the use of prototyping, (5) improve the development of technological options for modifying existing systems, (6) increase the use of commercially available technology, and (7) consider the need for mobilization in weapon system designs
Dossier : Russia's World Turned Upside Down. I( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2 articles:ʹ- The Russian Federation's Fight for Survival - examines the country's huge problem i.e. whether its eighty-nine components - republics, oblasts and krais - will find enough common ground to remain one country, or will follow the Soviet Union's course and fracture into smaller countries.ʹ- Sovereignty and the "Near Abroad"--Discusses the arguments that some sort of reintegration, especially in the economies of the new republics, is not only necessary but desirable.--SCAD summary
Estimation and analysis of navy shipbuilding program disruption costs by Center for Naval Analyses( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Changes in ship design or specifications disrupt work on a ship, and can disrupt work throughout an entire shipyard. This increases costs. Additionally, government-directed changes may be the legal basis for claims when the contractor overruns cost and schedule for any reason. Outstanding claims for equitable adjustment based primarily on alleged delay and disruption due to Government changes reached the unprecedented level of $2.5 billion in 1978. Many within the Navy would like to move the disruption issue out of the courts by paying the full cost of changes as they are implemented. This paper reports a test of the feasibility of a statistical method for fully pricing shipbuilding change manhours. (Author)

Linking acquisition decisionmaking with national military strategy( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study describes the Defense Department's processes for planning, guidance, and decisionmaking and assesses how well they support the Secretary of Defense in developing effective, integrated military forces. First it describes the management practices advocated by the Packard Commission and earlier independent reviews of defense management, for designing and executing acquisition programs that are consistent with national military strategy and projected budgets. Next it reviews the long-standing concerns with DoD management that ultimately gave rise to the Goldwater-Nichols Act in 1986. The report then describes the resulting changes within DoD since 1986, including actions to implement Secretary Cheney's Defense Management Report. Finally, the report presents a prototype management system to illustrate one approach for establishing the advocated management practices within existing DoD organizations and processes, and offers an agenda for implementing this proposed system
Prospects for the Russian Federation : center-regional relations by United States. Institute for Defense Analyses( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A combination of political, economic, and military-security factors will help determine the territorial configuration and political orientation of the Russian Federation. This paper examines these three sets of factors, and suggests that Russia could evolve in one of at least several ways: an authoritarian, recentralized country; disintegration into several new states; or continued accommodation with regional interests, allowing a relatively controlled devolution of power from Moscow. The way in which Russia evolves will have important military-security and economic implications for the United States and the West more generally. One important way to better prepare ourselves for any future Russian developments is to expand our contacts across the political spectrum and throughout the country
New Global Missions for Strategic Command( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

On October 1, 2002, a new Strategic Command will commence operations with responsibility for the combined missions of the current STRATCOM and SPACECOM. During the summer of 2002, the Institute for Defense Analyses supported the Joint Staff in reviewing several emerging and currently unassigned global missions and proposed that the new Strategic Command be assigned responsibility for missile defense, information operations, "global strike," and the global aspects of C4ISR. The focus of this White Paper is on the external decisions that will be needed to provide the Command with a clear mission, and the authority, resources and organizational support necessary to perform the mission. Internal organizational matters are not dealt with, as these are within the purview of the Command
Evolutionary Acquisition of the Global Command and Control System: Lessons Learned by Johnathan A Wallis( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper summarizes a "lessons learned" study that reviews DoD's approach to managing the GCCS program on behalf on the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence (ASD/C3I). This study, conducted in the Fall/Winter of 1997-98, provides a brief history of the program. It presents the views of the communities that develop, test, support, or use GCCS, and offers some specific lessons learned for continuing to strengthen the management of the program
Next Steps for Managing Defense Agencies, Field Activities, and Support Process( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report summarizes the findings of a study performed by the Institute for Defense Analyses to advise the Deputy Secretary of Defense regarding Defense Agency management issues that warrant the attention of DoD's senior leadership in preparation for the FY 2001 Quadrennial Defense Review. The study covered fourteen of the Agencies, which in total account for 20 percent of DoD's budget. IDA assessment teams met with Agency officials, review Agency plans and programs, interviewed Agency customers, and examined available information on Agency performance. The report provides a comprehensive review of each Agency's mission, history, management initiatives, and performance. We find that the current assignment of functions to the Defense Agencies is consistent with DoD's missions and policies. At the same time, fixing five DoD-wide management problems would improve the performance of DoD support functions, strengthen working relationships between the Agencies and their customers, and yield significant savings. Needed initiatives for making these changes are described
Assessment of DoD's Central Identification Lab and the Feasibility of Increasing Identification Rates( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was commissioned by the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) to address public and Congressional concerns over the pace and scope of work by the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) to identify remains, including those already recovered but not yet identified. DPMO requested an independent assessment of viable alternatives for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the operations of JPAC's Central Identification Laboratory (CIL). Specifically, IDA was tasked to examine the actions needed to increase the number of identifications to 180 per year by 2014. This report (i) identifies possible improvements in efficiency and effectiveness within existing (or currently planned) resources; (ii) describes a pragmatic near-term initiative for expanding CIL identification activities by resolving a targeted set of pending cases already in the CIL accessions, and (iii) describes the relationship between the long-term priorities of the identification mission and the types and scale of capabilities that would be necessary to achieve an annual identification rate of 180 per year

It briefly explains the evolutionary acquisition approach to GCCS, how GCCS requirements are determined, how each phase of development is planned via the EPIP, and how GCCS software is developed, tested, and fielded. The final section identifies responsibilities for the EPIP implementation
History of the ARPA Synthetic Environments for Requirements and Concept Evaluation and Synthesis (SERCES) Program( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the key activities and accomplishments of the ARPA Synthetic Environments for Requirements and Concept Evaluation and Synthesis (SERCES) program. The program objective was to demonstrate how distributed simulation could assist in the Defense acquisition process. SERCES sought to merge together several dispersed development simulation activities, to conduct a case study relating to a system within the acquisition process, and to offer tools which could aid other acquisition programs. DARPA, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Joint Program Office (UAV JPO), and the Naval Command, Control, and Ocean Surveillance Center's Navy Research, Development, Test and Evaluation Division (NRaD) agreed to conduct a set of exercises which would support the Maritime Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV). This report reviews the interconnections which were made between the UAV JPO's Joint Development Facility in McLean, Virginia, and the NRaD's Research, Evaluation and System Analysis (RESA) facility in San Diego, California. The results of the initial exercise and of simulations conducted in preparation to the second exercise are described. Also discussed is a process modeling tool that was developed and used for exercise preparation
