The Acquisition Portfolio Schedule Costing/Optimization Model: A Tool for Analyzing the RDT & E and Production Schedules of DoD ACAT I Systems ( Book )

IDA investigated whether the excess capacity present at military production plants can be exploited to produce more cost-effective production schedules for major acquisition programs. IDA developed a mixed-integer mathematical programming (MIP) model called the Acquisition Portfolio Scheduling Costing/Optimization Model, which can either cost or optimize the production schedules of approximately 100 Acquisition Category (ACAT) I programs over an 18-year period. The model's output also provides an estimate of what it costs the Department of Defense (DoD) to operate in its current fashion without adjusting (optimizing) the systems' production schedules. This document describes the model, its functions, and methodologies.
