Joint program management handbook by Barry A Eller( )

2 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is designed to help current and future joint program personnel. It contains advice that complements the more general Introduction to Defense Acquisition Management, 2nd ed., (DSMC Press, March 1993). It incorporates the perspectives of former joint program managers gleaned from a Defense Systems Management College (DSMC)-sponsored interview program. It is not a detailed description of how each military service manages those joint programs for which it is the lead military service. Joint programs are managed on a day- to-day basis in accordance with the lead military services procedures. These details are left to the military service. This handbook provides additional guidance on policies and procedures that help assure a successful joint program

Integrated Logistics Support Guide( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is designed to provide middle and top level logistics and acquisition managers with a working familiarity of Integrated Logistics Support. It addresses how to manage the ILS process throughout the life cycle from preconcept exploration through post-production support. It provides an organized approach and architecture for integrating support considerations into the requirements definition and design processes; integrating the support elements into a cohesive package; designing and acquiring support elements; and providing integrated support resources to achieve readiness and support objectives. The handbook's architecture will show the inter-relationships of the major activities in the acquisition process of systems engineering, test, cost, risk, production, contracts, etc. It is designed to bridge the gap between general acquisition and logistics policy contained in DoD Directives 5000.1 and 5000.39 and specific detailed procedures such as those in MIL-STD-1388-1A. The handbook is divided into six modules: Introduction to ILS; Developing the ILS program; Programming, Budgeting and Contracting; Test and Evaluation; Providing the Support; and International, Non-Major and Joint Programs

Virtual prototyping : concept to production( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We undertook this research project to assess the feasibility of using virtual prototypes in the DOD weapon systems acquisition process. Our goal was to identify and assess the current uses of virtual prototypes by commercial companies, defense contractors and universities. The Defense Science Board and the Defense Modeling and Simulation Office are confident that virtual prototyping can have a beneficial influence on the defense acquisition process. We were skeptical about the usefulness of virtual prototyping and were curious to see who, if anyone, was using virtual prototypes in the development process. We wanted first-hand impressions from people with hands-on experience on how they viewed the utility of virtual prototypes, their successes, disappointments, key risks and challenges. Because 'virtual prototype' is becoming a buzzword in today's vernacular, we wanted to know what people from industry, government and academia meant by the term and how they envisioned its application. This then was our charter -- to assess and describe the current state of virtual prototyping

Systems engineering management guide( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is one of a family of educational acquisition management guides written from a Department perspective; e.g., non-service peculiar. These are intended primarily for use in the courses offered by the Defense Systems Management College and secondarily as desk references for DoD acquisition Managers. This family of guides consists of: (1) Integrated Logistics Support Guide, (2) Mission Critical Computer Resources Management Guide, (3) Test and Evaluation Management Guide, (4) Risk Management Concepts and Guidance, (5) DoD Manufacturing Management Handbook, and (6) Subcontracting Management Handbook. This document is designed to (1) acquaint the newcomer with systems engineering concepts and techniques and (2) identify relevant directives and references. These concepts, when combined with common sense and technical expertise, constitute the basis of a sound systems engineering program. Highlights are the technical management activities over the system's life cycle from program initiation to system disposal. All activity centers around the system itself; thus, the system configuration at any time is of common interest to all engineering disciplines. These activities are normally divided into functional areas of design, test, manufacturing, and logistics support. Each of these functional areas is active throughout the system's life cycle. Keywords: Standards; Specifications; Risk management; Life cycle costs; Software development. (kr)

Streamlining Defense Acquisition Laws. Chapter 2. Contract Administration( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Chapter sets forth the Panel's recommendations concerning laws relating to contract administration. These laws apply primarily to matters arising after award of a DOD contract, although in some cases there is preaward application such as the use of cost principles in pricing contracts and determining the need for and the scope of a warranty provision. Similarly, other laws such as the Truth in Negotiations Act which have substantial post award application were not considered as part of the Panel's construct of contract administration. The Panel's statuatory mandate to streamline the acquisition process and eliminate laws that are unnecessary for the establishment and administration of the buyer and seller relationship has particular application to law relating to contract administration. Acquisition laws should focus on the contract formation process at which point national policies favoring competition, protection and support for small businesses, and domestic content laws are implemented. Lacking statutory guidance, decisions by procurement officials would not necessarily reflect the national policy decisions articulated in the laws passed by Congress and approved by the President
