dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines and analyzes the component breakout program for the Tube Launched Optically Tracted Wire Guided (TOW) Missile System. The advantages and disadvantages of component breakout are addressed, and an analysis of the component breakout process from the TOW Project Office perspective is provided. The research methodology consisted of a literature review, personal and telephonic interviews, and questionnaire responses of senior military and civilian acquisition personnel. The conclusions based on this research are: (1) Component breakout is resisted by program managers, (2) Component breakout operates in an environment of competing requirements and interests, (3) Component breakout guidance is sufficient, (4) Component breakout is going to be increasingly difficult to accomplish in the future. Recommendations of this study include: (1) Ensure that the component breakout strategy is included in the acquisition strategy, (2) Require a risk analysis prior to all breakout decisions, (3) Determine and fund the additional personnel resources required when performing component breakout, (4) Conduct a cost benefit analysis prior to making a component breakout decision.en_US
