Abstract
The purpose of this MBA Project is to investigate the possibility/feasibility of re-engineering the Littoral Combat Ship Mission Module (PMS-420) business process to function more efficiently. The Defense Acquisition system is designed to support the National Security Strategy by managing the technologies and programs that produce weapons system for the United States Armed Forces. Although the overall acquisition system functions well as designed, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the business process within PMS-420, and whether another design is more efficient. This paper will review the genesis of PEO LMW and its basic functionality as well as discuss in detail the unique business process of PMS-420 and its varied inter-agency relationships. This paper will discuss the efficient business processes of two other acquisition programs within PEO LMW; 1) Naval Special Warfare (PMS-340) and 2) Explosive Ordnance Disposal (PMS-408). While discussing these other acquisition programs this paper will note the particular business processes and management policies that promote efficiency, and whether these attributes can be applied to PMS-420. The final portion of this paper will be a summary of the findings and recommendations to PMS 420 in order for it to function more efficiently.
