Establishing competitive production sources : a handbook for program managers by L. A Kratz( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The laws and regulations which guide the weapons acquisition process require every program manager to use competition whenever it is feasible and effective to do so. Although the emphasis historically has been on competition during the early phases of the acquisition cycle, the Department of Defense also stresses the importance of competition in production. The program manager must assess the feasibility and effectiveness of production competition in a highly detailed, rigorous, and quantitative way. These circumstances have led to the development of a production competition handbook. The purpose of this handbook is to provide the program manager and other acquisition official's with a systematic guide to the assessment, implementation, and execution of production competition. The various techniques for establishing competitive production sources are described along with two models to aid the manager in deciding whether or not to pursue production competition on a specific program. Author- supplied keywords include: second sourcing, dual sourcing, Form-fit-and function, Technical Data Package, Leader-Follower, Licensing, Contractor Teaming, and Joint-Venture
Analysis of second-term reenlistment behavior : prepared for the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense, Manpower, Reserve Affairs, and Logistics by John R Hiller( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the reenlistment intentions of enlisted personnel in their second term of military service. Data were taken from the 1979 Department of Defense [Survey of Personnel Entering Military Service]. About 2,500 enlistees (from all services) met the working definition of having less than one year remaining in their second term, having served six to ten years, and having achieved a pay grade of E3 through E7. A statistical analysis (logistic regression model) was tailored to each service; it related the survey respondent's reenlistment intentions to four types of factors: compensation, promotion, location, and job satisfaction. Compensation and promotion emerged as the key factors, the others assuming varying degrees of importance in different services. As a reenlistment incentive, however, guaranteed location of choice emerged as potentially important, along with bonuses, shorter reenlistment periods, and increased probability of promotion
Follow-up of participants in the 1978 selected reserve reenlistment bonus test by David W Grissmer( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the long-term results of national experiment designed to study factors that influence reenlistment decisions of Army Reserve and national Guard personnel. In the experiment, 15,000 reservists making reenlistment decisions in 1978 served as test participants. An original evaluation estimated the effect of bonus payments given for 3-year terms ($900) or 6-year terms ($1800) on reenlistment rates and length of commitment. This Note estimates the long-term effect of the bonus on reserve participation using longitudinal data collected 3-1/4 years after original reenlistment decisions. While the bonus only raised reenlistment rates from 38.4 to 40.6 percent, it significantly lengthened the average committed term of service from 1.3 to 4.4 years. Longitudinal tracking of test participants indicates a significant strength gain will result from the longer-term service commitments. After 3-1/4 years from the beginning of the test, the bonus group retained 32.0 percent of the original group, while the control group retained only 25.7 percent

Factors affecting the use of competition in weapon system acquisition by Rand Corporation( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines methods for improving the effectiveness of competition in the acquisition of major weapon systems. Use of competition at the concept design stage is known to be inexpensive relative to benefits. However, competition is rare during procurement when the expense is immediate and any savings are delayed. Existing analysis provides no means for evaluating competitive reprocurement. Savings on competitively reprocured electronic items have been substantial but the factors explaining this are unknown. The best point in production at which to introduce a second source cannot now be determined. Also unclear is whether competitive reprocurement pays off for complex systems. Because price-competitive reprocurement strategies are one of the simplest and most quantifiable uses of competition, this study recommends improved data collection on current competitive acquisition, and further theoretical study of the function of competition in such acquisition

Assessing cost-reduction initiatives in a changing defense acquisition environment : a handbook by Karen W Tyson( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the changing defense acquisition environment, cost analysts have been confronted with claims of significant savings from new manufacturing techniques and other cost reduction initiatives. In some cases, acquisition programs would be unaffordable without these initiatives. This handbook provides methods for assessing the realism of savings estimates from cost reduction initiatives. While the initiatives are of recent vintage, some of them have historical antecedents or have been practiced in the commercial world before their adoption by government contractors. Evidence from these practices can be helpful in assessing the initiatives. The handbook provides this historical perspective, including early implementations and lessons, where available. It also provides a taxonomy of the initiatives, including generally accepted definitions, hypothesized cost impacts, benefits, and caveats. The potential impact of interdependencies among initiatives is highlighted. A recommended process for assessing initiatives, based on an investment framework of costs and benefits, is also presented and discussed

The Accuracy of Independent Estimates of the Procurement Costs of Major Systems( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports the results of an assessment of the accuracy of the independent estimates of procurement costs the Department of Defense uses in milestone reviews of major acquisition programs. IDA initially examined 63 major programs that received authorization to begin Engineering and Manufacturing Development during the years 1985 through 1998. The data needed to evaluate the accuracy of the independent procurement cost estimates could be located for only 25 of these programs. IDA found that the independent cost estimate was reasonably accurate for 18 of those 25 cases. In the remaining cases, the independent estimate was sometimes substantially too high and sometimes substantially too low
Two-Boson Truncation of Pauli-Villars-RegulatedYukawa Theory( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We apply light-front quantization, Pauli-Villars regularization, and numerical techniques to the nonperturbative solution of the dressed-fermion problem in Yukawa theory in 3 + 1 dimensions. The solution is developed as a Fock-state expansion truncated to include at most one fermion and two bosons. The basis includes a negative-metric heavy boson and a negative-metric heavy fermion in order to provide the necessary cancellations of ultraviolet divergences. The integral equations for the Fock-state wave functions are solved by reducing them to effective one-boson--one-fermion equations for eigenstates with J{sub z} = 1/2. The equations are converted to a matrix equation with a specially tuned quadrature scheme, and the lowest mass state is obtained by diagonalization. Various properties of the dressed-fermion state are then computed from the nonperturbative light-front wave functions. This work is a major step in our development of Pauli-Villars regularization for the nonperturbative solution of four-dimensional field theories and represents a significant advance in the numerical accuracy of such solutions
